TMR MIXr showcases real-time technology advancements

Envision is proudly one of the ‘industry solutions’ presenters at the upcoming Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads TMR MIXr on 28 March 2017, providing insights into the advantages available to projects through real-time field reporting.

Off the back of the inaugural event last year, TMR has opened up the one-day event to a wider range of stakeholders – in TMR’s words, ‘connecting government and industry to opportunities for collaboration, partnerships and problem-solving’.

With web and mobile technology enabling massive improvements in field data capture, transport and other construction projects have the opportunity to dramatically improve the way a project’s schedule, progress, changes and costs are managed.

Yet, the majority of large construction projects in Australia are not realising the full benefits of real-time electronic capture of field-based data.

Readily available technology like Envision is a significant untapped resource and, in our presentation, we will showcase how real-time data management can transform delivery decision-making.

As a Queensland-based innovation and the only software of its kind in Australia, Envision features the latest advancements in change (unplanned event) management, field-based collaboration (comments, photos etc) and real-time reporting.

Our session will show how clients have gained better insight into the real-time health and status of their projects to improve decision-making and performance while achieving savings.

It will also look at:

  • End-to-end capture and reporting of field data
  • Significant advantages available when the common reporting ‘blackout’ (the lag between data inputs and reporting) is removed from projects
  • Gains possible through multi-system integration with BIM, GIS and other platforms.

One of the exciting opportunities through events such as TMR MIXr is collaboration. Envision is live and proven on several projects but is based on continual improvement and ‘fast feedback’, meaning it advances through the insights of clients and their involvement in shaping the evolution of the platform.

We see Envision as a true step change in the delivery phase for transport and other infrastructure projects, with benefits for government, industry and community stakeholders, and look forward to participating in the event.

Envision partners with iCURO to showcase resources solutions

With Simon Anthonisz, Managing Director, iCURO

Envision teamed up with workforce management software leader, iCURO, at the 14th PNG Mining and Petroleum Investment Conference in Sydney this month to showcase the latest in project management software for remote projects.

While this multi-billion sector in PNG continues to expand, with several major projects set to come online in the near future, delivery teams are still faced with the demand to achieve more with less.

From managing remote, disparate project teams to commodity price fluctuations to weather and much more, it’s clear that lean principles are the way forward.

Conference presentations featured major mining and oil and gas companies providing updates on existing operations and the progress of upcoming projects.

The mining side was more upbeat, with steady increases in the gold price leading to several existing mines increasing their production this year, and some gearing up for expansion.

A couple of mines that had stalled shared about how they are bringing new projects online in 2017 now that companies and investors are confident their long-term viability is secure.

In the oil and gas space, the success of the PNG LNG project was a major highlight. The 300th export left the port shortly before the conference began, which is a great achievement by co-venture partners ExxonMobil, Oil Search Limited (OSL), Kumul Petroleum Holdings Limited, Santos Limited, JX Nippon Oil & Gas Exploration and Mineral Resources Development Company Limited (MRDC).

The other big news came from the Total presentation, giving more detail to the recently-announced Papua LNG project, expected to start in late 2017. This will be the second large-scale project for PNG – a great boost for the economy and communities there.

With the drive toward increasingly lean operations, attendees were particularly attracted to iCURO’s automated workflows for managing on-boarding, mobilisation and worksite attendance, alongside Envision’s features that simplify the creation of daily diaries, management of daily costings and capture of unplanned events.

2014 Lean Construction Conference

Ennova partnered with industry leading construction companies to present productivity findings from recent projects at the annual Lean Construction Conference. Ennova showcased results from the recent QCLNG project that demonstrated significant reductions in schedule (timescale) and cost, and an overall improvement of around 30% in labour productivity.

The results were discussed at two sessions:
