ABOUT

From design to installation this investigation is a fusion of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) from the manufacturing perspective and Building Information Modelling (BIM) from the construction.

 

Drafting Office:

 

  • Drawings do not contain accurate information about the topography and/or surrounding environment where the installation will take place. 

  • Need  repeated site visits to verify dimensions correctness and/or obtain missing information

  • The survey data supplied by the client is often delivered in AutoCAD 2D format as oppose 3D. 

 

Fabrication Shopfloor: 

 

  • In many cases, fabrication receives 2D as oppose 3D drawings formats. Each worker interprets the same drawing differently. 

  • The communication gap not only affects fabrication but also drafting and site works.

 
FieldWorks:

 

  • When components are taken to the lay-down yards and placed at random locations, the searching time to locate items increases. 

  • Field workers need to search among hundred of physical drawings to find out to which part of the assembly, the selected component belongs.

  • Missing inventory

OBJECTIVES

  • Eliminate communication gaps 

  • Reduce uncertainty 

  • Minimise the use of complex procedures and generate user-friendly solutions.

  • Create mechanisms to detect and control the source of defects/waste/missing items.

  • Thrive for continuous “real-time” information exchange, externally and internally.

  • Leverage of virtual data to complete site works accurately, efficiently and effectively.

  • Improve existing tracking systems.
