Welcome to the third blog text in our #readyfor2024 series! In this blog, we´ll explore the integration of all your engineering disciplines: Can you link and visualize all your data and models? As technology continues to advance, staying updated and efficient in your digital tools is not just an advantage but a necessity. This blog aims to guide you through enhancing your software ecosystem. I will explore which common bottlenecks Cadmatic can provide support for and share success stories from our satisfied customers.

In our second blog, we discussed daily bottlenecks, pain points etc. I am pretty sure everyone has struggled at some point with data validation, versioning or finding the right data. And most important: Bringing all disciplines together – in every project this is one of the biggest challenges as every project is different. The naming, symbols and setup are not like the previous projects, so you must adopt best practice for every project, which is very time-consuming and expensive. 

What if you didn’t need to check and doublecheck your data manually and could link all your data and documents over all disciplines? Most digital twin projects will take anything from 12 months up to 2 years! With Cadmatic, you can literally see the first results of an integration in days once the documentation and 3D model have been received from the customer. As an example, let´s look on at challenges related to tracking and validating your project with construction management:

1. Optimize construction sequences and practices

In the field of construction management, one of the most significant challenges is optimizing construction sequences and practices. Achieving this requires implementing advanced planning and scheduling techniques, coupled with utilizing digital tools like Cadmatic. We enable many visualizations of the construction project, allowing for better management of resources, time, and costs. 

2. Manage and track specific activities

Another challenge in construction management lies in supporting the construction site by managing and tracking specific activities. The dynamic nature of construction sites, with a multitude of simultaneous tasks and different parties involved, necessitates a robust tracking system. Many companies use several different file formats and systems. If changes need to be made, it may result in high costs as tracking is not easily possible.

3. Highlight construction priorities

Construction projects often face the challenge of highlighting construction priorities associated with the relevant material availability. The feasibility of construction processes is directly linked to the availability of required materials. Therefore, an efficient material management system is vital. Can you check if your stored material is constructable so that it can be used for your current or upcoming project?

4. Real-time tracking of installations

Real-time tracking of electrical, instrumentation and any other installations and displaying welding joint data presents another challenge in construction management. This is particularly important for safety and quality control. The challenge lies in the seamless integration of these technologies into the existing construction processes. This is where the power of Cadmatic solutions is at its best. Imagine easily tracking your material with full mobile project control while viewing everything in one model.

Cadmatic can support you in navigating the 4 challenges and many more in your EPC business. Read our success story with Bonatti – Italian giant bets on eShare – Cadmatic. They have tackled all these challenges with CADMATIC eShare. The use of this technology can also be the catalyst to greatly improving construction management in your organization, leading to more efficient and successful projects.
