Using Vela Systems software with bar-codes and RFID [radio-frequency
identification] tracking, builders can access the Navisworks model on the the construction site.
This makes it possible to track material production and installation, manage commissioning, conduct quality assurance/quality control inspections, do punch lists and create electronic owner-handover documentation.
A contractor used the technology to track computer workstations during the construction of Autodesk's new AEC headquarters to gain these benefits:
- Inventory of available workstations was confirmed against the model.
- Staging, assembly, and installation of workstations was tracked using color coding.
- Final inspection and owner punch lists were automated in the field.
