Enabling mobile construction processes with think project! Quality 2.0
think project!, leading Common Data Environment (CDE) provider for construction and engineering projects, releases the latest version of the app think project! Quality. The app for quality management brings digital processes to the construction site in order to improve efficiency in construction projects.
In every construction project, project members in the office require access not only to the latest version of information, but just as importantly, the teams on site. The easiest and most efficient way to create a line of communication is through mobile devices. Applications can help to manage and distribute information on site, especially when they are integrated into structured processes and project platforms. The app think project! Quality serves this need by mobilising information management surrounding quality management in construction.
A year ago, think project! Quality for professional defect management was introduced. Now, a version update (2.0) is available in app stores. The new version not only mobilises defect management, but can be applied to a variety of quality management processes. It can be used for capturing defects and reviewing defect rectification as well as other established procedures like RFIs (Requests for Information), inspection of reinforcements and many more. The potential for integration with a range of different think project! solutions in the area of quality management makes the app an essential building block on the road to digitalisation as well as mobilisation of construction processes – particularly on site. Integration is made possible by synchronising data from the app with the think project! Common Data Environment.
The app think project! Quality offers a broad range of functions which support successful quality management, digital representation of construction processes and various stakeholders. The first version of the app made it possible to capture defects via photos and add relevant information, synchronise with the common data environment and review defects on your mobile device. Version 2.0 now provides additional functionality to make mobile quality management efficient:
- Download selected drawings from the think project! platform and use the provided pin to mark a specific location in the drawing to record the location information, for example, for describing a defect
QR Code functionality
- Create new documents by scanning a QR Code (for instance in a room) with location details and an automatic fillout of the entry fields with the appropriate information
- Scan paper documents and process the respective PDF in the app
Andrea Hofmann, Head of Product Management at think project!, says: “Connecting different think project! solutions to this app is the next big step in the mobile world of think project!. Construction processes are mobilised entirely, which helps our customers to efficiently implement quality management in their projects.
Thomas Bachmaier, CEO at think project!, says: “Our strategy is the enablement of mobile construction processes. Professional, time and cost saving quality management can only be implemented through integration of the construction site. think project! Quality 2.0 will take mobile defect and quality management to a new level.”
