A few years ago, managing a large fast track project was full of surprises where material availability, constructability, look-a-heads were unknown until the activity is in progress which gave construction managers little if no time to react on such variables.
CCC and CCT INTERNATIONAL started an initiative which is known to most construction team as the electronic data interface (EDI) whose purpose to harness all data from all companies participating in the project (Designer, Procurement, Sub-Contractors, Testing …) ensuring it is in a format readable by CCC and CCT INTERNATIONAL systems in order to analyze it.
The end result will be a full-fledged system capable of providing construction management enough information ahead of time allowing them to react and mitigate risks effectively.
Few years back, CCC and CCT INTERNATIONAL joined the Fiatech organization where they found out that many companies are facing similar problems and were willing to sponsor any standard that makes the data flow seamless between the different phases of the project lifecycle (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Operation, and Maintenance Fiatech is an international community of passionate stakeholders working together to lead global development and adoption of innovative practices and technologies to realize the highest business value throughout the life cycle of capital assets. This effort came up with new standard called ISO 15926 where most of the missing blanks are being filled by a project called JORD.
To be compliant with ISO 15926, the stake holders (engineering, Procurement and Construction) should include those links when defining their output whether 3D model, Material Requisition, Test-Packs.
Consequently when exchanging data between phases, the material in question is uniquely identified with ambiguity. CCC and CCT are currently leading an initiative, within Fiatech, to fill all the gaps to seamlessly have the below workflow fully operational.
