Dassault Systèmes has unveiled “Lean Construction,” an industry solution experience for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.
Built on Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the new offering delivers a collaborative project backbone that helps companies from all parts of the AEC industry develop, manage and organize complex projects from anywhere with full governance. The company claims the centralized 3D environment eliminates language barriers and enhances communication between offices and onsite teams. The visibility into real-time project status also allows all players to quickly make any needed improvements, helping to control costs and eliminate needless waste.
Lean Construction also allows companies to review and analyze different options to ensure they’ve created the best construction approach and assembly sequences. Resources can then be applied to understand the cost-effectiveness and profitability of the plan, enabling any adjustments or changes to be made before work begins. Once the project is underway, the software helps track progress in real time to avoid field collisions between contractors, subcontractors and others, because any disagreements or issues that force a schedule change can drive up expenses and reduce profits.
