SHOP Talk: Using Augmented Reality to Track and Improve Labor Productivity

On Demand Until November 14, 2020

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Loss of labor productivity on any job is a loss of project control — resulting in increased costs, broken schedules and decreased profitability. In this special webinar, presented by ICT Tracker, learn how to utilize the power of augmented reality to track project installation for better scheduling, billing and project estimation.

The process starts at your fingertips. The ICT Tracker mobile app replaces manual and expensive 3D scanning systems by digitizing the collection of data on-site. Users can view 3D design models on an iPad and compare it against as-built systems on-site, which gives contractors real-time data to track, measure, and improve project installation productivity.

Data can be shared immediately with all stakeholders for better decisions based on detailed, up-to-date information, which makes the software ideal for tracking mechanical, plumbing, electric, and fire protection systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • What is augmented reality? A crash course in augmented reality and why more contractors are using the technology to improve construction productivity
  • At your fingertips: Getting comfortable downloading and working through the ICT Tracker mobile app, including best practices and operational workflows
  • Project Productivity: How to identify your project’s weak spots and plan steps for productivity improvement
  • Improving Profitability: Contractor fabrication and installation case studies
