JUST RELEASED: a 5-minute video illustrating just a few common use cases for Optimized Planning powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes.
In this video, you will see how the Project Execution System helps a project manager resolve discrepancies between a construction plan and the actual execution plan.
The project manager manipulates a 3D view of the supply, status and delivery schedule of materials. He or she also uses Last Planner methodology to validate parts, materials, and contractor supply availability.

Click to Tweet: A “Perfect Storm”
for #AEC Industry Transformation
It’s no secret that the AEC industry is suffering from a surplus of waste: wasted materials, wasted time spent on rework and change orders, waste from highly fragmented processes.
However, what the industry is beginning to realize is that it’s not the first group to think, There must be a better way.
The aerospace industry is one recent example; in the 1990s, companies such as Boeing began to look at technologies and processes used in other industries to tighten their supply chain and manufacturing processes. A switch to all-digital modeling made this possible.

Hector Lorenzo Camps has set his sights on integrating the AEC industry at its earliest stages.
The former architect and current building information consultant teaches a course on the Dassault Systèmes 3DExperience platform at the University of Miami School of Architecture with the goal of increasing collaboration in all areas of the industry.

After decades providing IT and product lifecycle management consulting services to the aerospace industry, Mohamed Ali El Hani saw an opportunity to apply his experience in that mature industry to a new sector just beginning to adopt similar processes and tools: the AEC industry.
Mohamed Ali El Hani, CEO of IMPARARIA Inc.
Interested in exploring how aerospace technologies and a PLM approach could help improve the productivity of the design and construction industries, El Hani founded Impararia Solutions Inc. in 2009.
With Impararia, El Hani set out to become a leader in PLM, helping AEC customers optimize their business processes by looking at IT investments that address the full lifecycle of their projects.
However, the CEO of the Montreal-based company quickly recognized that despite the many similarities between aerospace and AEC, significant gaps still exist.

When Miro Miletic began his career with Boeing in the 1990s, the aviation industry was at the precipice of tremendous change.
Although designers still produced paper drawings for each aircraft, 3DCAD was emerging as a drawing alternative.
Miro Miletic, Managing Director and founder of MEMKO PTY LTD
With the 777, Miletic was part of the team to design and build an aircraft using 3D CAD as the master model.
The next step was the 787: the first aircraft designed without paper using Model Based Definition (MBD). Everyone, from supply to production, worked from digital models. The design process realized incredible new efficiencies with this move.
Today, from his position as founder of technology service provider MEMKO Pty Ltd. in Australia, Miletic is urging the AEC industry to recognize the efficiencies it, too, stands to gain from a digital transition.
Jumping Across Industries
His decades as a Boeing executive also gave Miletic an appreciation for the art of integrating solutions across industries. Since founding MEMKO in 2007, Miletic has been more focused than ever on that goal. MEMKO provides technology solutions, engineering and training for a variety of industries, including aerospace, defence, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) and others.

The Optimized Construction Industry Solution Experience from Dassault Systèmes integrates AEC project data, tracks progress, and brings together project teams – including owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, fabricators, and sub-contractors – all on a single, intuitive, collaborative platform.
You get the value of:
- Integrated Project Plans—where project data files are integrated with plans in the same location – bringing together all information in one place.
- Project Visibility— through real-time dashboards that summarize project status and give visibility to all participants. With real-time updates, you can identify potential problem areas and take action early on.
- The Power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform— that puts everyone on the same platform, giving people the ability to talk, discuss, chat, and collaborate on a project together;

In 1986 it was just becoming apparent how computers could hugely improve engineers’ efficiency in design and analysis.
Geoffrey M. Haines
It was with this realization that Geoffrey M. Haines, BSc(Eng), ACGI, C Eng, MIMechE, FRSA, founded Oxford-based Desktop Engineering Ltd. (DTE), writing engineering software and serving as a reseller for established software houses. Since then, Haines has kept an eye out for ways to improve efficiency across various industries.
Since 1999, DTE has engaged CATIA-based solutions to designers, engineers and building manufacturers.
A few years later, the company began to realize that its customers in the automotive and aerospace industries were light-years ahead of the architecture and construction industry.

The following is a reprint of a Compass: The 3DEXPERIENCE Magazine article by Vicki Speed.
The Permasteelisa Group, based in Italy, is a leading worldwide contractor in the engineering, manufacture and installation of architectural envelopes and interior systems.
Compass spoke to Permasteelisa IT project manager Federico Momesso and communication manager Massimiliano Fanzaga about how the company is adopting more standardized technologies and processes to better meet the construction industry’s growing demand for customized building systems on short timelines.
