Poor Data Fuels Construction Rework
A joint study between software company PlanGrid and FMI Corporation recently reported a growing problem that is plaguing many construction companies today: Poor data and miscommunication is driving over half of all construction rework. Worse, rework due to data mismanagement and misunderstanding is costing U.S. construction companies $31.3 billion in 2018.
Digital Guidelines Needed to Improve Data
The lack of available digital standards continues to result in several companies unknowingly inserting "rogue data " and data mistakes into their project plans. This generates incorrect plan detours plus confusion that can lead work crews to complete unnecessary rework. While most construction companies are aware of this growing data dilema, they don't have the time or ready resources to develop the digital standards needed to improve their data.
