Increase performance in infrastructure projects is becoming increasingly important. We find it more important to build better, safer and more sustainable. Systems engineering is therefore becoming increasingly important to keep a grip on the project result from start to finish. Digitization makes the application of systems engineering increasingly cheaper. Most people now consider working digitally normal. How can you let systems engineering work for you?
Direction of project realization from inspection plan to completion based on an example from railway construction
Keeping control of the work when innovation is realized has specific challenges. Project realization is often carried out in multiple execution periods and with different disciplines. The time of an implementation period is limited because the infrastructure must also be available for use. No time to lose during the execution of the work. Transparency of the status of the work is important to know whether the work can be carried out within the planned period. Each discipline has its own way of working, with different forms and specific quality requirements. Working for each discipline with its own working method and keeping control over the whole. This is possible with the forms in KE-chain.
The dashboard widget provides an extra opportunity to improve your understanding of the project. With the dashboard you have an overview of the work that is open, still to be assigned and what is behind schedule. You can use the new dashboard widget anywhere in your project. Soon it will also be a standard part of the application.
Maintaining an overview of maintenance work has its challenges. During maintenance, several registrations are usually made in a number of steps to carry out the work. Smart handover of information between these steps saves a lot of time. Time that would otherwise be lost searching for information, keeping separate lists, calling or texting each other and merging information. How much easier would it be if you no longer have to manually transfer information? This is possible with the forms in KE-chain. Joost Schut is happy to tell us more about it.
Like many infrastructure companies, Mourik uses Relatics to keep an overview of the requirements for specification and verification. They use KE chain to carry out inspections and other registrations. To maintain an overview in one place, the results of the inspections are combined in Relatics. This was an error-prone and manual administrative process for the use of KE-chain. With KE-chain they have created a bidirectional link that optimizes the entire process. Maarten Boer, information manager and systems engineer at Mourik, is happy to tell us more.
BAM Infra Rail works with several systems to keep an overview of the information from the railway construction projects. Keeping track of the status of the inspections, deviations and VTWs is key to timely and complete delivery.
