  3. 3. Construction Projects These Days…• Moved to virtually entirely electronic construction projects.• Often the only paper is a site drawing.• Litigation is still a major concern, especially in a recession.• Project extranets e.g. BIW, 4Projects, etc commonplace but limited: – Primarily a document exchange system. – Don’t facilitate communication / collaboration. – Not intended to make the job better.• Continually increasing need to improve and differentiate.• A successful project these days is not just on-time on-budget delivery. 3 © 2013 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. Basic Requirements to Manage a Construction Project.• A place to store and manage controlled documents like drawings, specifications and reports;• A way of updating others on changes to files and other important information;• A project directory so that everyone knows each other’s responsibilities;• A management and workflow engine to provide a standard approach to managing changes and which provides industry-standard templates to achieve these changes;• A way of managing revisions to documents and being able to back-track through previous revisions;• Security and auditability of all changes in the system;• Mobile – be available wherever the user is on whatever device they have. 4 © 2013 IBM Corporation
  5. 5. What Does Social Do that Current Systems Do Not?• Greatly reduce the irrelevant information by letting the end user choose what to be alerted to (within limits).• Provide tools to standardise processes and procedures according to contract guidelines in a secure and auditable way.• Provide cross-system tagging and discovery of information beyond just searching.• Flattened reporting structure and and information updating.• New models for handling information that doesn’t just rely on files.• Identifying the people who are involved, not just the information.• Focus on the individual not the process.• Novel methods for updating the entire project or individual teams on progress. 5 © 2013 IBM Corporation

  7. 7. Comparison of Engagement vs RecordEngagement Social RecordBlog Use a blog as a system of record for individuals or Reports organisations to report on the status of their work. Instantly shared, single version of the truth.Activities Use an activity to set up the agenda, collect papers, record Meetings actions and track progress.Wiki A wiki provides an ideal means of linking, revising and Procedures auditing all types of site safety, management and other procedures.Files Any social collaboration system should provide versioning, Drawings distribution, alerting, tagging and management of files.Communities A social collaboration system provides the ideal way of Logical bringing logical groups of users together, e.g. design team, groupings sub-contractors, etc. 7 © 2013 IBM Corporation

  13. 13. Summary• A Social Construction Project unites the team like no other current solution.• It provides both a system of engagement and a system of record in a secure manner.• New models of usage, such as blogs, wikis, communities and activities address the modern requirements without trying to replicate the old paper world.• Social Collaboration reduces information overload in multiple ways without diluting responibility, liability or control. 13 © 2013 IBM Corporation
