Now On Demand
Project management platform developers have long worked to integrate BIM, scheduling and field-report processing into systems to analyze progress and improve planning, coordination, and communication. Now there’s a new kid on the block. Software is available to automatically assess work status by applying image recognition technology to video from reality capture tools like 360º cameras that go along for the ride on supervisors’ jobwalks.
By integrating such ubiquitous, unobtrusively acquired background data into project management platforms, systems are emerging that can analyze productivity against plan and resources, from day to day, and even issue warnings about looming delays. Our panelists are experimenting with such tools on jobsites now and will share what they know about how this technology is playing out, and what it looks to be best suited for in the future.
