In this talk, DEWALT will present pilot project results and case studies focused on new digital workflows. This presentation will begin with highlighting design automation solutions.These solutions enable construction professionals to seamlessly move from design directly to fabrication while tracking progress to the construction site. Presenters will also discuss the advantages of a connected job site and how data can be collected then communicated to the project participants to greatly improve productivity.Whether you are a designer, contractor or trade professional, you will learn about tools and technology available today that can help you improve your own workflows.
- Identify new digital workflows that automates designs through modeling.
- Explain how a connected job site can improve productivity
- Recognize new tools that are available today that streamline prefabrication.
- Communicate how the Internet of Things will impact the construction industry.
