Engineering and Construction Firms “Going Digital”

To Improve Project Delivery with ProjectWise CONNECT Edition

For architecture, engineering, and construction firms active in project delivery, as well as for owner-operators, it is increasingly important to digitally share engineering models, project information, and deliverable with the entire supply chain throughout the design, construction, and completions. Firms that are going digital are significantly reducing project delivery time and are gaining better insight into project performance, ensuring collaboration among project participants, streamlining design processes, and improving data quality and governance.

ProjectWise CONNECT Edition provides a connected data environment and enables firms going digital with managed access to project information and essential project services including deliverables management, issues resolution, BIM review, and field data management.

Mike Schellhase, senior director, software development, Bentley Systems, said, “Our users are going digital. They want to share project information with secure information mobility to connect their supply chain and give project stakeholders insight into project performance. Using our digital project delivery capabilities, our users are developing repeatable best practices, improving quality deliverables and winning more work.”

Firms active in project delivery are benefitting from ProjectWise’s digital project services through:

  • Virtualizing talent through global work-sharing

Leveraging the best skillsets of in-house resources regardless of location and open access to new sources of talent from Value Engineering Centers leads to more cost-effective and better performing project execution models.

  • Connected supply chain for automated deliverable management

Users can now manage and lower the risks involved with the schedule, contractual, and legal compliance with automated review workflows. Moreover, ProjectWise’s digital project services help users ensure their transmittal information is accurate and speeds submittals and RFIs by identifying and resolving issues quickly and ensuring the quality of project deliverables.

  • Connected field data management for closed-loop workflows

Field data management cloud services enable users to accelerate field collaboration with access to multiple project repositories and comprehensive document control. Users can now configure forms and report templates to ensure all tests and inspections are performed to standards and ensure consistency, speed, and coordination across all field activities such as QA/QC, daily reports, and inspections using mobile and other devices.

  • Analytic-driven project insights

Deliverables-based KPIs and the ability to aggregate analytics across enterprise data sources, including cost, schedule, and document controls, allow users to make strategic decisions based on project history and trends across a project, a program, or the enterprise.

ProjectWise collaboration services for digital project delivery uniquely support digital workflows that span design to construction through completions. Providing a connected data environment as a single source of information enables organizations to securely aggregate, manage, and share digital project data.

What ProjectWise CONNECT Edition Users Are Saying About Going Digital 

Dillon Consulting Limited implemented ProjectWise to enable work sharing among multiple offices and to exchange contractual deliverable with the extended supply chain. Dave Widdifield, system administrator, Dillon Consulting Limited, said, “With an expectation of several thousand transmittals, ProjectWise Deliverable Management eliminated a manual process and streamlines contract management with our supply chain.”

Brent Mauti, global director, design technology, IBI Group, said, “Bentley empowered IBI Group to devise a true hybrid LAN-Cloud project collaboration solution, where we have already saved USD 30,000 in hardware, alone. Additionally, this connected environment provided us with increased productivity without having to manually conduct file transfers across offices, netting 400 hours saved!”

Rob Braun, director, Automation Systems Integration, CH2M, said, “The simplicity and ease of use of ProjectWise digital project services, such as Project Performance Dashboards, helps us monitor status of project documentation and deliverable resulting in a streamlined delivery process and improved satisfaction of our customers.”
