During the pandemic, construction intensified the introduction of technology, transforming the building business model, enhancing teamwork and efficiency, and increasing wages and profit margins.
FREMONT, CA: Today's construction companies are beginning to use collaborative technologies like real-time, cloud-based analytics to mine vast structured, and unstructured data repositories to ensure that all stakeholders – architects, consultants, engineers, subcontractors, specialist tradesmen, customers, managers, agents, and suppliers – are on the same page and have access to real-time data. These innovations can completely transform the industry by providing game-changing advantages.
Here are three benefits of big data in construction contractors:
Enhance plant and equipment productivity – Sensors are used on modern construction sites to collect data from plants and equipment to increase productivity. When these devices are connected to on-site operational equipment, a vast amount of data about the performance and utilization of instrumented machines is produced. Sensor data may indicate when construction machinery is idle and involved, allowing contractors to improve fuel efficiency and productivity while also determining if it is more cost-effective to purchase, lease, or rent such machinery
[vendor_logo_first]Maintain a healthy and safe workforce –Sensor-enabled wearable devices are having a significant effect on improving working conditions for site workers, in addition to offering invaluable insights into the productivity and performance of plant and equipment. These sensors can not only track environmental factors that impact occupational safety, but biometric sensors embedded in the wearable can also monitor the employees' health. A healthy workforce is one that is satisfied.
Remove waste – There is absolutely no reason for this amount of waste, both in terms of materials, facilities, and time, given the digital technologies available today. Companies are turning to analytics software due to a new emphasis on the concepts of lean construction to minimize material waste. These tools provide real-time information to the entire project team, allowing for more effective distribution and utilization of materials, plants, and equipment.
