Challenges of Change: Project 2020 and the Jobsite of the Future
Imagine the jobsite of the future – a fluid and dynamic intersection of technology, data-centric workflows, integrated supply chains, and a production manager focus resulting in improved performance for our customers and a more rewarding work experience for our teams. Cornerstones of future jobsite delivery include smart and Internet of Things (IoT) jobsites, data centric execution, augmented and virtual reality, machine learning and AI, and the reimagining of manufacturing principles for construction. But, how do we get there? The end-state vision offered by jobsite digitization is appreciated by many, but the challenges to achieve it remain ever-present as many participants along the value chain are at different points in their digitization journey. These challenges keep the industry stuck between a truly digital work-process and a document-centric work-process. It has created divides between areas like design and construction that sometimes mean work is duplicated, and it’s an effect that negatively impacts productivity, and continues to fuel headlines focused on inefficiencies in the industry. This Keynote session will address these challenges, from the perspective of a builder and an owner operator, and provide solutions for the practical application of technology to achieve the jobsite of the future.
