Connected Construction Whitepaper | 1 Connected Construction Whitepaper How connected construction is changing work—and life— for project managers For years, project managers have dreamt of a single solution—a unified, automated system that instantly updates project data across the enterprise, streamlines communication among all stakeholders, and gets folks home in time for dinner for a change. But the construction industry has been slow to adopt new technologies, and project managers have often borne the brunt of that lag. Keeping projects on time and on budget, managing changes and dealing with unexpected setbacks has often required them to put in long hours of manual work, coordinating multiple systems and disjointed processes. Recent advances in cloud-based technologies and built-for- construction tools are enabling a new approach to construction technology stacks, data and workflows. This approach is often called connected construction—meaning your days of legacy, manual project management processes are numbered. Today's cloud-enabled applications can coordinate real-time data and workflows; break down silos; provide more accurate, timely data; and analyze information. As a construction project manager, you can leverage these innovative tools to make better, faster decisions—boosting your ability to complete projects as intended—on time, and on budget. Designed to support lean and agile construction management principles, connected construction enables your team to collaborate more effectively. Construction professionals at all levels will know the whole project plan and understand their part in it. Superintendents and project managers can identify problems, measure and analyze the data related to the problems, implement a solution, and control that solution. With the right connected construction technology, your teams can manage your construction projects from a single source, making a lean and agile approach to construction project management a reality.
