Dassault releases lean construction application for AEC

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Dassault Systèmes a producer of 3D design, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions recently announced the launch of Lean Construction, a project management solution for the architecture, engineering and construction industries for collaborative project management and execution.

Built from Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the Lean Construction industry solution experience provides a collaborative project backbone that helps companies from all parts of a project team to develop, manage and organize complex projects from anywhere with full governance. A 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.

With Lean Construction, companies can also 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 a project is underway, Lean Construction helps track progress in real-time to avoid field collisions between contractors, subcontractors, and others, as any disagreements or issues that force a schedule change can drive up expenses and reduce profits.

“For years, the global construction industry has been plagued by delays, cost overruns and inefficiencies. It has been estimated that some 25 percent of construction industry costs, or $120 billion annually in the United States alone, is nothing but waste,” said Monica Menghini, Executive Vice President, Industry and Marketing, Dassault Systèmes. “In this context, our Lean Construction industry solution experience helps AEC companies understand their projects better from start to finish, and improves upon the promise that BIM-Building Information Modeling technology made but hasn’t fulfilled yet.”
