Though technology has rapidly advanced in the last decade, the common challenge of document control and management persists in engineering and construction projects. As project collaboration tools increase in number and capability, the global reach of our companies and supply chains creates a challenge – how to standardize, streamline, and consolidate collaboration around a single solution?
Every project has a lifecycle. From start to finish, mega projects are composed of complex operations executed by hundreds, if not thousands of individuals. Aligning effort, time and coordination across the entire lifecycle of a project depend on a key factor: Control. As such, Proarc developed a model comprised of seven essential steps to help you gain control on your next project.
We recently conducted a webinar on October 15, 2018, that showed how the latest Proarc product release can help companies digitalize technical engineering documentation processes and streamline collaboration between project members.
Many of us are faced with the challenge of controlling the massive volume of construction documents required as we build today’s MEGA scale projects.
In this blog you will learn how Proarc utilizes strong industry knowledge combined with industry specific templates to quickly deploy an effective engineering document management system. Our on-boarding consultants incorporate this deployment methodology, which we call the “Agile Accelerator Framework”.
Proarc customers can benefit from newly released capabilities for the control of technical documents. Enhancements cover the review and approval process, collaboration with vendors and clients, and the mobile functionality for field workers.
Certain situations force us to look at the RISK associated with using outdated or ineffective Document Control Software approaches.
According to a report published in 2015 by McKinsey research, construction megaprojects have a 98% occurrence rate for time delays and cost overruns. Data indicates an average cost overrun of 80% of the original value and an average slippage of 20 months.
Document Organization and Control is at times an overwhelming task. There are many approaches to storing data that have worked well in the past. In today’s highly interactive and collaborative environment we find it is critical to not only manage and store data, but also to provide rapid retrieval, controlled access to documents based on approval levels, and assurance that revision levels are accurate.
