Regain Control of Your Schedule
Project schedules are a necessity; however, due to the visual complexity of Gantt charts, finding errors, out-of-sequence work, or misaligned activities in a project schedule can be inherently difficult. The larger the project, the more difficult this exercise becomes. Trying to find opportunities for schedule optimization in a 400-page document is a daunting task. If these planning errors aren't caught early, the result can be schedule loss, project cost impacts, and increased risks to workers.
4D planning provides a visual representation of the project schedule using the 3D model. Each model element is linked with a schedule activity; when played back, each model element appears on screen as it is sequenced within the schedule. Teams can leverage these simulations to collaboratively plan their work, identify out-of-sequence activities, and improve project performance.
Let's Get Visual
Integrated 4D planning environments provide project teams to view the work before they do the work, thereby enabling coordination in the office before anyone steps foot on-site. Teams can ask questions, identify issues, and challenge assumptions like never before by leveraging the support of 4D planning solutions.
4D Planning Use Cases
Engineering performance analysis
Procurement performance analysis
Construction planned vs. actual performance analysis
High value equipment optimization planning
Not yet ready to take the leap but interested in learning more about how 4D planning can create value for your project? Let's discuss a tailored 4D proof of concept.
During a proof of concept, our consultants work with your project data to create a partial 4D model for review and team socialization. A proof of concept allows you to trial the software and dig into the processes behind 4D programs with less risk than a full implementation. You can view the final model, evaluate software for future use, and identify opportunities for full 4D model development.
