Key Stakeholders in Industrial Construction Meet to Discuss the Future of Materials Management

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Birmingham, AL – October 26, 2017 – Atlas RFID Solutions, the world leader in material readiness for the capital asset market, announced today that their 5th annual Jovix® Executive Forum attracted over 50 industrial construction owner and EPC leaders to discuss materials management processes.

The Jovix Executive Forum is an annual event for Atlas RFID Solutions’ clients and industry leaders to come together and jointly identify the ways in which technology and innovation can make construction safer, more efficient, and more productive.

“We invite industry thought leaders to this conference to share practical ways in which technology can transform our industry and how our industry can better embrace technology adoption. It takes a true partnership between the technology providers and the end users to make tangible progress,” said Atlas RFID Solutions COO Robert Ball.

Fluor’s Brad Duke presents at JEF

This year, Jovix Executive Forum welcomed Keynote Speaker Steffen Fuchs from McKinsey & Company. Fuchs leads McKinsey’s global work in capital productivity with a focus on digital and innovation. Fuchs’ presentation, “Digital and Innovation in Capital Projects and Infrastructure,” focused on three main buckets: trends and opportunities to rethink construction, current activities and priorities in digital solutions, and digital transformation journey for companies.

Additional presentations were delivered by forward-thinking industry stakeholders including Brad Duke, Project Information and Technology Management from Fluor. Duke presented a case study entitled “Enterprise Level Deployment and Integration,” outlining their implementation of Jovix as a bolt-on solution at an enterprise level. Dan Klick from Shell presented “Efficient Execution Through Materials Management,” a case study that focused on the implementation of Jovix on the Shell Geismar Project citing a 30% reduction in time required to perform receiving, picking and issuing of material. 

Jovix has made many improvements and updates these past 12 months including the Oracle P6 Integration. Atlas team members, paired with Oracle’s Geoff Roberts, presented the integration details and uses. The linkage to P6 takes the subjectivity out of decisions and provides schedule status with the right level of detail.

Jovix leadership will use the feedback gained from JEF presentations and discussions to shape the product roadmap, actively responding to the needs of today’s increasingly complex industrial construction projects with a global supply chain.
