Conventional workflows are causing huge loss of information
If we look for reasons behind this enormous waste of time, we can’t ignore the fact that the construction industry has been very slow to adopt digital technology. The MGI Industry Index 2015 shows that the construction industry is currently among the least digitalised industries, only slightly better than the hunting industry.
Due to that, the continuous use of digital information along the entire process chain falls significantly behind other industry domains. All too often, valuable information is lost because information is still predominantly handed over in the form of drawings, either as physical printed plots on paper or in a digital but limited format. Such disruptions in the information flow occur across the entire lifecycle of a built facility: in its design, construction and operation phases as well as in the very important handovers between these phases.
