Predictive analytics and conflict management in capital construction

This guide discusses the causes and consequences of construction disputes, how they can be avoided, and how owners can get the information they need to make decisions for future projects.

Best Practices Webinar Series- York Region

Construction is a high-stakes, complex game, and when things go awry, everybody searches for a person to blame. Finding common themes in the causes of conflict in construction projects makes it possible to find workarounds that could mitigate or avoid many disputes. This is all the more possible now that artificial intelligence (AI) can offer better analysis through data to help you steer clear of many construction conflicts.

Preparation can help immensely in avoiding conflicts on construction sites. Project teams should be
trained on schedule management, documentation, cost tracking, and have complete knowledge of the scope of work as well as contract terms before the project begins. Construction teams should also know how to handle changes when they arise. Predictive analytics can help mine project information for clues into what to expect on similar projects in the future and play out scenarios that can detect conflicts before they can happen.

In the past, assessing the risks and rewards of new projects was a question of the construction leaders’ basic recall skills. However, data modeling can now do the heavy lifting, comparing similarities and differences between past and future project details. Predictive analytics is a natural outcrop of data analytics that can add great value to capital construction.

 

Why your small to midsize public agency needs a robust capital program management system

Learn how a wholly modern, robust software solution designed specifically for small to midsize public agencies like you can help manage your capital program, from planning through construction to operations.

 

Different departments independently plan, track, and manage infrastructure and facility projects with various tools resulting in inconsistency across departments. This process creates difficulty in establishing data and audit trails, managing schedules, and project controls. All these factors will slow down every aspect of your capital program, making it extremely hard to get an accurate snapshot of your project’s or program’s health. Gain valuable insights about how having a modern and concise way to manage your planning and project execution will help you save time, increase your team’s productivity, aid your agency in eliminating costly errors, and save money in the long run.

10 actions public agencies must take to digitize their capital programs

Gain valuable insights about the ten actions that your public agency should take to digitize your capital program to gain more control over your projects and adapt to technological trends.

The world is rapidly changing, and if your public agency does not keep up with the technological advancements, your capital program may slow down or get hindered. According to McKinsey, on an average, large capital construction projects are 20 months behind schedule and 80% over budget. Today, just about everything is digital, and the pandemic has rapidly accelerated this fact of life. The more connected your public agency is, the more control you will have over your projects. Moving your agency online entirely and deploying an enterprise-level system to replace your point solutions can be a big undertaking. We have compiled ten actions that your public agency should take to digitize your capital program.

  • Implement electronic signatures
  • Bring public engagement online
  • Integrate GIS capabilities with your current systems
  • Automate your workflows (and boost collaboration)
  • Ease the training and onboarding for current & new staff
  • Extend your project network with controlled access for consultants and contractors
  • Go mobile
  • Integrate (all of) your systems
  • Hire an expert
  • Introduce an enterprise-level solution

How to leverage the power of GIS in capital program management

Learn more about the different ways in which GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and PMIS (Project Management Information Systems) can work together in the construction industry for an enhanced operational performance.

Today, construction management software is widely used to organize projects and capital improvement programs (CIPs). Simultaneously, geotagged data has become an important part of capital project lifecycle management. Therefore, it makes sense that PMIS be able to incorporate accurate, geotagged data into most activities. This data should also be easy for your users to access.

Read the guide to learn about the ways in which GIS and PMIS can work together in the construction industry.

  • Reports assigned to coordinates
  • Automatic coordinate capture
  • Useful reports
  • Leverage existing investments
  • ESRI integration
  • Regulatory compliance stored in one place

Addressing the Equity Gap in Public Infrastructure

Gain valuable insights from this webinar on the equity gap in public infrastructure. Learn how we can overcome the inequality in the delivery of infrastructure and services for our communities.

Best Practices Webinar Series- York Region

Aurigo has teamed up with industry leaders to discuss the possible solutions to the existing equity gap in infrastructure.


Our nation has had a history of inequality in the delivery of infrastructure and services for our communities. How do we include more women, minorities and other traditionally underserved groups in the process? Capital program leaders must recognize and work to readdress inequities in their policies and programs that may serve as barriers to equal opportunity.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How to ensure the projects being proposed are equitable
  • How agencies can hire the right people to advance equity
