Smartvid.io Joins Oracle Construction and Engineering Innovation Lab

Oracle Construction and Engineering Blog, 4/24/2019

Construction is one of the most documented industries. Traditionally, much of that documentation goes to waste: jobsite photos are leveraged for a single purpose, then left to collect digital dust. Although this is a standard practice, it’s long overdue for a change.

Today, Smartvid.io is joining the Oracle Construction and Engineering Innovation Lab to help accelerate this change. Oracle Construction and Engineering customers can now detect and reduce project risk using Smartvid.io’s artificial intelligence (AI) platform through an integration with Oracle Aconex.

Technology jumpstarts lean construction practices

BuiltWorlds, 3/29/2019

The most important elements of any construction project are time, cost and quality. Often, one of those three will get deprioritized or outright dismissed by way of stakeholder priorities. If a project needs to be done quickly and with high quality, it won’t be cheap; if it needs to be done on a limited budget and finish fast, its quality will suffer. Lean construction is an approach that aims to optimize these necessary trade-offs while reducing the time, effort, materials and money that are necessary for projects. In simpler terms, lean construction aims to maximize customer value while minimizing resource waste.
