New ProjectWise to increase operational efficiency.
The users of Bentley's ProjectWise, a project collaboration and information software developed for the design and construction of architecture, engineering, construction, and operations of infrastructure projects, are set to increase operational efficiency and reduce costs with the next release of ProjectWise Connections Services and its deliverables management capability.
ProjectWise currently provides users such as Parsons Brinckerhoff with a secure collaborative platform for its multi-discipline teams to create, manage, share, capture, review and approve design documents and project information.
Leah Mackay, information system manager, rail and transit, Parsons Brinckerhoff, said: "ProjectWise is our standard for design integration and collaboration which expedites the sharing and reuse of design documents within our project teams.
"With ProjectWise, we have standardised our processes, resulting in increased productivity, better design quality, and global collaboration."
Parsons Brinckerhoff faces the challenges of sharing project files efficiently with clients, contractors, consultants, and other stakeholders outside the core project teams. The tasks such as review and approval of deliverables across multiple offices and stakeholders are often labour-intensive, requiring large-scale coordination by a team of document controllers.
The new ProjectWise Connections Services and its deliverables management capability will streamline project workflows and expedite the document review and approval process for critical project documents.
"With ProjectWise Deliverables Management we will have easy-to-use, secure cloud-based environment, for transmittals, submittals and RFIs (requests for information)," said Mackay.
"This powerful capability will simplify documentation workflow for critical project information, provide an excellent end-user interface to manage submissions and RFIs and provide our senior management teams the project health information they require in one simple dashboard at the click of a button. Project communications and visibility will be improved dramatically with these fantastic new features," she said.
ProjectWise Deliverables Management provides extensive integration with ProjectWise, so as design documents are updated, project participants are notified, directing them to key deliverables requiring their review, comment and approval.
"Now key stakeholders will have the information required to understand documents status and recognise potential bottlenecks required to minimise delays and mitigate the risk to project delivery," Mackay added. - TradeArabia News Service
