How Sensor Technology is Changing the Game in Construction
THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS BIDDING ADIEU TO RISK AVERSION AND STEPPING UP TO THE INNOVATION PLATE.
The E&C induustry is primed to reap the benefits of drones, advanced data/analytics, robotics, and innovation in general. Atlas RFID Solutions is one company working to drive transformation and make an impact in E&C. One of the company’s solutions, Jovix, is a Material Readiness application that provides real-time visibility to all stakeholders in the industrial construction supply chain by digitizing and automating historically manual, paper-based tasks.
Jovix leverages a combination of cloud software, mobile devices, and smart RFID tags and barcodes to help workers keep track of their materials and drive productivity. Jovix was selected as a technology provider for the Oracle Construction and Engineering Innovation Lab, a simulated worksite based outside of Chicago. The Lab was designed to help project- and asset-intensive organizations explore and test the latest cutting edge technologies in the industry to help drive digital transformation.
Dr. Burcin Kaplanoglu, Executive Director and Innovation Officer for Oracle Construction and Engineering, recently interviewed Jon Chesser, Chief Revenue Officer of Atlas RFID Solutions, about Jovix and the E&C industry challenges his company is working to address.
BK: What are the key challenges around materials readiness for organizations in E&C?
