McConnell Dowell chooses Orange Business Services to deliver IoT solution

McConnell Dowell chooses Orange Business Services to deliver IoT solution

Melbourne, Jul 9 (UNI) McConnell Dowell, a leading infrastructure construction company, has selected Orange Business Services to design a customized, smart and scalable IoT solution.

It will enable construction sites to collect and report on real-time information, such as heavy machinery utilization and asset tracking, to enable smarter decision making for operational efficiency, time saving and cost reductions, according to a statement here on Thursday.

The construction industry faces significant business and technology challenges. These include equipment and skilled labor shortages, increasingly short project schedules and rising costs of infrastructure delivery. IoT will allow construction sites to leverage real-time data feeds to tackle these issues head on.

Co-innovation led Orange and McConnell Dowell to co-create use case applications from innovation and ideation to platform deployment. Orange created a flexible, scalable IoT platform to collect, report and visualize real-time information over a private IoT network, focusing on digitizing manual and paper-centric processes and removing manual tasks from the construction site.

Prior to this smart approach, McConnell Dowell could only access reports that were manually collated from physically captured data, which was both time consuming and inconsistent.

With the Orange IoT platform, McConnell Dowell can now access multiple devices and sensors collecting environmental data and measure asset utilization spread across construction sites to harvest data. This is then sent across a LoRa low-power wide-area network (LPWAN) to the company for analysis, correlating with other environmental data.

Via real time dashboards, McConnell Dowell can collect telemetry data such as machine movements and track assets onsite allowing project teams to assess efficiency of machine use and report on individual asset utilization.

McConnell Dowell can also track material such as concrete panels from the manufacturer through transportation and installation. On site they can then identify each individual panel and take smart decisions, avoiding incorrect placement, rework and project delays. More use cases, business applications and new construction site roll outs are planned across the business.
