8 Years and 200 Deployments

Robert Ball, COO of Atlas RFID Solutions, will review lessons learned on implementing RFID-based technology on construction projects across 5 continents.

Robert has over 12 years of combined experience in construction project management and construction software solutions, and has played an influential role in nearly every Jovix deployment, from Australia to the Canadian Oil Sands, to South Korea and the Middle East. He will share his experience on common obstacles, best practices, and lessons learned in the deployment of over 200 auto-ID based implementations within the industrial construction market. Common obstacles have included data integrity, complex Owner-EPC contractual arrangements, global supply chains, and extreme environments.

With his depth and breadth of experience, Robert will share:

  • How to apply best practices for improving supply chain visibility
  • How to set conditions for success through valuable lessons learned
  • Progress that can be achieved if we capitalize on the technology that is available NOW
  • Where he thinks technology in construction & supply chain is headed
  • What is coming?

This presentation will include project case studies, discussions on collaborative software integrations, and best practices for Owners, EPCs, contractors, fabricators, and suppliers, plus a live Q&A.

Top 5 Challenges when Implementing New Technologies on Construction Sites

Roughly 40% of the cost of a capital project is on the construction execution side, yet a majority of our IT budgets are focused on the design and project controls tools. With stagnant or even declining productivity gains as an industry, which has continued even with increased technology spend in these areas, what is preventing the construction industry from investing and adopting technology in the field?

This webinar will take a deep look at the top 5 challenges when implementing new technology on construction sites—exploring this issue from all directions, including stakeholder involvement, the labor force, industry culture, and the effective and ineffective ways in which a project shares data. Presented by Paul Mitchell, Director of Construction Solutions at Atlas RFID Solutions, attendees will leave with an understanding of what is preventing the construction industry from investing and adopting technology in the field, not just the home office—and what can be done to overcome those obstacles.
