Hi I am … me!Today I am going to present ConstrucSim. ConstructSim is one of the portfolio of tools from Bentley for users in the global infrastructure community. ConstructSim is a pioneering application in the use of virtual models for construction.
Introducing ConstructSim – say it!ConstructSim is revolutionary system that provides a dynamic planning environment to address the nature of a wicked problem. ConstructSim can be used by various stakeholders on a project … ranging from contractors in a direct hire mode, to construction management and even by owner operators.ConstructSim can also be used across multiple phases of the project … from early interactive planning sessions prior to construction, through execution field level crew work packages … and into systems turnover and completions. and methodology to manage a construction effort within a virtual construction model. It can be used on all types of projects by the owner/operator, CM, direct hire and on many different types of projects regardless of the size. construction planning. throughout the project … all the way on a project from early planning, to The initial focus market has been on large industrial projects, but we are in the process of expanding the tool for use in the civil, commercial building and manufacturing segments.

Workface Planning<br />Workface Planning is the process of organizing and delivering all the elements necessary, before work is started, to enable craft persons to perform quality work in a safe, effective and efficient manner.<br />COAA Best Practice<br />4 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM<br />
Crew Productivity<br />Tool Time on large construction projects is typically quite low: 31 to 40%<br />This number is largely due to resource-related issues.<br />Approx 32% of crew’s time is spent waiting or idle<br />COAA WFP Slide <br />5 | WWW.BENTLEY.COM<br />
