In Star Trek's 1998 Insurrection the android Officer Data goes rogue and wreaks havoc after experiencing a malfunction. Unfortunately this sci-fi film can get pretty close to reality when it comes to the construction industry. Today losing control of your plan data can be a very real threat to your construction business. This happens more than you might think after new software platform integration. Think you won't be impacted? Take a look at these scary stats below.
The PlanGrid-FMI study recently reported the following insights on construction data:
- Miscommunication and poor project data account for nearly half (48%) of all rework on U.S construction jobsites.
- Construction workers lose almost two full working days each week solving avoidable issues and searching for project information.
- 22% of respondents attribute rework to poor project information, such as incorrect project data and difficulty accessing or sharing project data.
- $31B spent on rework in 2018 was due to miscommunication and inaccurate data on the job site (miscommunication costs the industry $17B each year; poor project data costs about $14.3B each year.)
