As the world advances in technological developments, organizations need to evolve to address the changing business landscapes towards digital transformation. The engineering and construction industry are no exception.
The digital innovation impact is not only on how the engineers work now, but also on the potential of their work into the future.
But how will engineering keep up with the continued advancements in the digital landscape?
Have You Heard of Digital Engineering Yet?
Digital engineering is the art of capturing data and insights and creating innovative designs developing the most efficient methods of delivery and operation.
Digital is more than a development technology. It is the future! It provides many opportunities, solutions and advantages for engineers, clients and society.
The benefits of digital engineering
• Engineers can work in a safer environment minimizing time spent in potentially high-risk situations.
• Clients can have an idea of what the project will look like before it’s built, how the design will be delivered and how it will function.
• Companies can push design parameters and engage more deeply with stakeholders to design a better future.
• Companies will have the ability to plan and understand the construction processes and project outcome (cost, quality, program…).
• Companies can test different solutions rapidly, virtually, and validate design for manufacture.
• Companies can improve their project schedule performance, reduce labor costs, and improve margins while delivering higher quality project.
The Role of IoT in Engineering Software
With the Internet of Things, physical devices, vehicles, and engineering appliances are all interconnected. Engineers can control objects remotely across a network. The physical world is integrated with computer-based systems. This integration improves efficiency, accuracy and economic profit and reduce the human intervention.
The IoT embedded in engineering devices, like vehicles with constitutional sensors, DNA analysis devices for environmental observance, field operations devices for search & rescue operations and cameras steaming live feeds, facilitate the construction and engineering responsibilities.
Key technologies that are major drivers of the industry trends…
- 3D Printing & Robotics: enabling greater precision, reducing building materials by 30% to 60%, and speeding delivery by 50% to 80%.
- Internet of things: monitoring and improving the use of engineering assets while reducing costs.
- Portable and Modular Buildings: using 3D building information modeling (BIM) technology to construct 50% faster with higher level of precision, delivering the project on time and within budget.
- Prefabrication and Assembly: using premanufactured parts to reduce waste and time and build buildings able to withstand magnitude earthquake with more energy efficient.
- Augmented Reality: using smart wearable’s to collaborate with workers while delivering real-time, hands-free data and application.
