The topic of digitalization is increasingly coming into focus. Construction companies in particular, which tend to be small or medium-sized enterprises, are still lagging far behind in the digital change. If you want to remain competitive in the future, you have to face digitalization and take advantage of opportunities that arise.
This is where ConWearDi comes in: The aim is to develop a web platform that enables the digital exchange of information between all those involved in construction. Building on this, services are developed to support the planning and implementation of construction site processes.
Web Platform Digitalizes Construction Site Processes
The platform connects (software) tools of different kinds. Examples are ERP systems, planning tools or machines and materials equipped with sensors. Wearables are also used, e.g. smart glasses, which record and process information in real time. As part of the project, we develop an application for process planning that is specially adapted to construction site processes and connected to the platform.
Construction Site Planning Under Uncertainty
The adherence to schedules across several construction projects is often only possible through a precise division of the work packages and an optimal use of the available resources. Changes in the course of the project (e.g. absence of employees) make it difficult for the planner to maintain an overview.
