Have your say about digitisation in the construction sector
First published onINTERMAT
Up, up and away with Leica's latest drone: but where are we going with digitisation?
What is the state of digitisation in the construction sector and - more importantly - where will it be in three to five years or more? Will the players, large and small, in the value chain simply react to new technologies or shape them for the sector to become more efficient, productive and innovative?
Have your say about these issues facing businesses, governments and the supply chain. It takes little more than 10 minutes to fill out today a brief on-line questionnaire from the CECE - Committee for European Construction Equipment.
Results of the questionnaire will form part of a larger survey. The data will be analysed and a report presented to delegates at the CECE Congress in Rome on October 19.
Data gathering for the report will be done in three phases, starting with the brief on-line questionnaire where respondents will remain anonymous, explained David Meinero, with Brussels-based Innovation & Development Consulting which is conducting the survey. The CECE hopes to have 100-150 respondents, and would like about 40 of them to commit to an in-depth interview afterwards.
The third phase will be site visits where digitisation in action can be examined and documented. Up to 10 site visits are hoped for, said Meinero.
“The survey will provide a clear picture, a real snapshot of where the sector is and where it wants to go,” he said. The analysis will also allow an informed debate among all groups about where digitisation can benefit not the just the few but the construction sector’s many stakeholders, from original equipment manufacturers, component suppliers, contractors, rental companies and procurement organisations.
