Real Time Collaboration & Project Management Systems
Real Time Collaboration and Project Management Systems use cloud-based software and although no longer a new concept, these communication platforms offer many benefits connecting the site and office as well as general contractors with subcontractors.
Technology can benefit issues of miscommunication and enhance partnerships within the workplace by providing platforms to disclose information about progress, problems and milestones. The Digital Cube is a collaborative workspace that brings digital technology to the coalface of construction projects. The cube integrates hardware, software, and processes to enable the collaborative space to be embedded on site, allowing the amalgamation of BIM project delivery with solutions-focused around strategic planning.
A recent study measuring owner satisfaction with projects, conducted in partnership with the Lean Construction Institute, reveals the value of improving collaboration by looking at the relationship between team dynamics and project performance.
In this study, owners were also asked about what they did differently on the two projects, and the team dynamics they reported varied strongly. One of the strongest examples of this was the level of integration of the team. Sixty-one percent of owners reported that on their best projects, they had a well-integrated team, compared with just 9% who reported this on their typical projects.
