In this episode of the Smarter Building podcast, we caught up with Robert Kumapley, the Chief of Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) Program at The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ), on the challenges and advantages of implementing an asset management strategy.
Streamlining Workflows: How Oculo Enhances Your Construction Processes with Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Construction Cloud, and Viewpoint
There’s a lot happening on site, with a large number of contributing stakeholders all seeking to ‘do their bit’, staying connected, aligned and efficient is crucial to project success. Construction professionals are constantly seeking ways to streamline their workflows, improve collaboration, and enhance productivity. This is where Oculo - a cutting-edge 360-degree photogrammetry platform can come into play, seamlessly integrating with industry-standard document and field management tools like Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Construction Cloud, and Viewpoint to help customers achieve their goals.
What Organisations Seek to Achieve
Before delving into the benefits and functionality of Oculo's integration with Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Construction Cloud and Viewpoint, let's take a look what customers aim to achieve with these solutions.
- Efficient Collaboration: Construction projects involve multiple stakeholders, including architects, engineers, contractors, and subcontractors. Effective collaboration is essential to ensure everyone is on the same page and working towards a common goal.
- Data Accuracy: Accurate and up-to-date data is critical for making informed decisions. Customers need a solution that ensures data integrity across various project stages.
- Cost and Time Savings: Reducing delays and minimising costly errors can significantly impact a project's bottom line. Customers are looking for tools that can help them save time and money.
Oculo Delivers on these Customer Desires
Oculo, with its integration to Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Construction Cloud, and Viewpoint offers a host of benefits that align with the goals outlined above:
- Streamlined Collaboration
Oculo acts as a centralised hub where the ‘true’ project progress can be accessed and viewed by all stakeholders. This means architects, engineers, and contractors can work together seamlessly, reducing communication gaps and ensuring everyone is working from the same accurate information. Issues raised from the field or by stakeholders within the Oculo platform automatically flow through in to the chosen CDE/field management tools.
- Enhanced Data Accuracy
With Oculo's integration, information captured, and changes made in one platform are instantly reflected across all linked systems. Stakeholders have access to clear and instant evidence around the ‘as-built’ situation on site, should any element on the project be queried.
- Cost and Time Savings
By automating imagery and associated site data capture, Oculo helps cut down on administrative tasks and the potential for human error. This leads to significant time savings and cost reductions. Moreover, timely access to accurate project information helps in identifying issues early, preventing costly delays and ensuring compliance.
Oculo's integration with Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Construction Cloud, and Viewpoint is designed for seamless interoperability with Oculo, continuously synchronises data between systems. All information from site walks, highlighted issues or captured asset data are instantly fed back in to the chosen CDE/field management platform to keep all involved up to date.
In summary, Oculo's integration with Autodesk BIM 360, Autodesk Construction Cloud, and Viewpoint empowers construction professionals to achieve their collaboration, data accuracy, cost savings, and time-saving goals. By creating a unified and efficient ecosystem, Oculo simplifies complex construction workflows and sets the stage for successful projects in the ever-evolving construction industry.
