Adopting a Digital Construction approach

The digital revolution has existed, maybe longer than many of us initially think and digital transformation has been implemented within Manufacturing for some years with digital aspects of industrialisation now commonly used in Manufacturing. Now, the construction industry has some catching up to do, but digital construction is on its way, and the benefits of digital adoption are starting to be recognised, including efficient planning, intelligent designing, and more effective assembly for increased sustainability, optimised operations, significantly lower costs – showing ROI and greater safety.

Digital Construction was kick-started by the Government mandate which orchestrated BIM (Building information modelling), Majenta Solutions have been at the forefront of BIM, and we have pulled on our experience within supply chain integration, PLM and data management in the Automotive Industry to bring digital construction to over 1200 construction projects since 2016.

Leverage the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE

The 3DEXPERIENCE tool-set can offer ways of overcoming industry challenges and expediting learning curves for customers who want to work in a single source of truth environment. Many companies are now striving towards Building Lifecycle Management (BLM), and the tools available within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform will add significant value.

What’s Building Lifecycle Management?

Building Lifecycle Management or simply BLM initiates a BIM Level 3 approach that enables a highly efficient Extended Collaboration model based on the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and the Automotive and Manufacturing industries best practices.

The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform applications can take charge of the integrated Extended Collaboration process, bringing together all project design and delivery elements for a productive and smooth workflow.

By means of implementing a single source of truth environment, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can fully utilise BIM data, allowing a highly collaborative design process and a controlled project workflow, which results in increased efficiency and better results across all areas of activity.

What the 3DEXPERIENCE platform gives you

Full Visibility of Actual Data Across the Building Lifecycle

  • Automates the control of increasing levels of data across the lifecycle of the asset.
  • Allows current data to be seen in context of the entire project, through facility management and operations.

Federated Data Using Standard Protocols, Common Data Environment

  • Handles and integrates native data from different sources, e.g., Autodesk® (Revit®, Inventor®, AutoCAD®), Bentley®, Dassault Systèmes® (CATIA®, SOLIDWORKS®), Rhinoceros®, Tekla®, etc.
  • Converts BIM data via IFC; Reads/writes IFC to a database in a cloud, accessible through web services.
  • Centralizes data in a Common Data Environment (CDE), offering a Single Source of Truth.
  • Supports the BIM protocol of “Work in Progress > Share > Publish > Record” processes.

Versioning of Data

  • Displays only the latest version of data.
  • Previous versions are available to view, if required, to understand changes.
  • Removes the need for file transfer or management systems.

Change Management

  • Tracks and controls changes in any part of the building lifecycle.
  • Ensures every project stakeholder and contributor is included and consulted.

Plan of Work, Collaboration Process Map

  • Integrates and supports the recognized Plans of Work (PoW) and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) stages, with built-in client decision points.
  • Ensures the completeness of data drops by using integrated approval and workflow processes.

Standard BIM Templates

  • Creates and stores standard templates required for BIM process, e.g., Prequalification.
  • Questionnaire and Model Production and Delivery Table (MPDT).

Extended Collaboration

  • Enables seamless collaboration between owners, architects, engineers, building product manufacturers, fabricators, general contractors, subcontractors, and facility managers via portal technology.
  • Supports data integration for end-to-end information flow.

User-Based Permissions and Role-Specific Access

  • Restricts access to authorized, defined users based on role within or outside the organization for any type of data, to protect company-specific Intellectual Property (IP).
  • Manages which users are permitted to take what actions within the system.

Full Traceability

  • Holds a fully traceable record in the CDE of exactly who has done what, when, and why.

Compliance

  • Makes compliance possible with local standards such as COBie and PAS1192.

Performance Management

  • Reports on productivity, profit margin, and KPIs vs. baselines, past projects, or industry averages.
  • Provides an online business dashboard.

Universal Access on the Cloud

  • Operates seamlessly and intuitively via a web browser.
  • Enables real-time collaboration among participants.

Open Standards

  • Allows continued use of existing vendors and data assets.
  • Enables future flexibility and data portability.
  • "We’ve really appreciated Majenta’s consultancy – they’ve been liaising with some of the large contractors who are now relatively advanced in BIM for help and feedback on what we’ve done and their response has been very positive."
