Achieve 30% Increase in Productivity
One of the most respected engineering, construction and project management companies – known for landmark projects around the world – wanted to improve project efficiency by 30% within three years. To help achieve this goal, xScion developed a data strategy and created centralized data and analytics capabilities that gave real time insights into their projects.
Facing cost pressures due to stagnant productivity, the client needed to unify data across multiple functional silos to deliver critical real-time business and operational insights to their teams on the ground. They sought to reduce dependencies on human expertise and antiquated algorithms as the main basis for project planning and resource estimation. New processes, technology and cultural shifts were needed to drive operational and cost efficiencies.
xScion implemented a data assessment to determine what events were causing the greatest impact to project delivery and built a Data Center of Excellence using multiple structured and unstructured data sets. Data toolsets were utilized to pinpoint events causing the greatest impact to project delivery and determine the optimum delivery path of regional projects based on factors such as permitting, engineering, weather and site conditions.
Thanks to the new real-time analytical capabilities, the client was able to reduce costs, better estimate project timelines and resources and refine project best practices – now and in the future. xScion provided the client with a foundation that supports all lines of business through the creation of a Data Lake and Data Center of Excellence that make it easier to analyze and apply lessons learned across multiple projects.
