Want to connect with fellow top-level C-Suite executives within the AEC space?
Materials management is the process of sourcing, purchasing, and tracking materials to ensure that they are available for a project when they are needed. This is vital within the AEC ecosystem, as supply chain disruptions leave a significant impact on project timelines and budgets. These solutions help a project’s team to improve accuracy, efficiency, and visibility, all while improving project outcomes and customer satisfaction and reducing costs.
Top Solution: SiteSense (Intelliwave)
SiteSense’s materials management software is a cloud-based platform that delivers proactive procurement planning, constraint analysis, forecasting and allocation, and advanced scheduling. This provides project teams with agnostic visibility and control over project materials from supplier to installation.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC)
QA/QC solutions are essential for ensuring safety, functionality, and efficiency when assessing and maintaining production standards and quality. They both help contractors with tracing materials, monitoring jobsite conditions, and communicating production processes and standards with workers.
Top Solution: Procore
Procore’s safety and management software enables construction teams to reduce delays and reworks by supplying analytics and insights to better understand, predict, and correct issues proactively. Their software also simplifies compliance with quality specifications and presents actionable insight to the root cause of quality issues.
Reality Capture- 360 Cam
Reality Capture utilizes hardware devices to compile jobsite metrics and images, providing project teams with detailed visual representations of project sites. 360-degree cameras use a dual fish-eye lens to capture a panoramic image of a site that is then generated into visual tools such as 3D maps and 360-degree images and scenes.
Top Solution: Struction Site/DroneDeploy
StructionSite's SmartTrack is an automated production tracking tool with intelligent project tracking software that provides in-depth insights into the status of work completed within a jobsite. A project's team can use the IOS or Android integration or app to walk the jobsite, while the AI-powered algorithis map them to the project drawing.
Reality Capture- Fixed Cam
Reality Capture utilizes hardware devices to compile jobsite metrics and images, providing project teams with detailed visual representations of project sites. Fixed cameras are typically stationary and pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) imaging systems that capture a livestream of jobsite progress while monitoring safety and security.
Top Solution: Earth Cam
EarthCam offers live-streaming video, time-lapse construction cameras, and reality capture solutions with the world's first outdoor gigapixel panorama camera system. This technology provides a multi-billion pixel clarity for monitoring and archiving projects.
Reality Capture- LiDAR
Reality Capture utilizes hardware devices to compile jobsite metrics and images, providing project teams with detailed visual representations of project sites. LiDAR (Light Detection and Radar) uses laser pulses to scan physical environments, which then renders detailed 3D replicas that can be explored virtually.
Top Solution: Leica Geosystems
Lecia's RTC 360 laser scanner empowers its users to document and capture their projects in 3D to address project complexities with accurate and reliable tools. This improves a project's efficiency and productivity with user-accessible and portable hardware and software.
Reality Capture- IoT
Reality Capture utilizes hardware devices to compile jobsite metrics and images, providing project teams with detailed visual representations of project sites. IoT solutions are internet-enabled devices, sensors, and wearables that monitor important elements of a project overtime, all within real-time
Top Solution: Genda
Genda's IP67 rated devices are self-powered and disposable have the ability to capture and store source and project site data. These powerful IoT devices don't require on-site infrastructure or preparations and are fully functional within power outlets or network connects, making it extremely accessible for any jobsite.
Safety & Risk Management
Safety and Risk Management solutions aid contractors in minimizing accidents, creating a safer work environment, and maintaining accurate incident reports. This helps to provide project teams with data and actionable insights that can be used within a proactive approach within jobsite safety.
Top Solution: Procore
Procore's construction site QA/QC software is designed specifically to predict potential issues and risks. This solution makes it simple for a project's team to contribute and comply with safety regulations and specifications, while holding the team accountable to what may increase risk.
Workforce management solutions are critical for construction firms, as it ensures that they have the right people at the right place all at the right time. These solutions can help firms to maintain worker schedules, training, and optimize overall jobsite productivity.
Top Solution: Bridgit Bench
Bridgit Bench specializes in jobsite visibility with real-time updates and expansive workforce management data and metrics. Their solution streamlines work assignments, tracking, and forecasting, bridging the gap between project and field operations.
