Telematics specialist Trackunit has published a report called which explores how data sharing can maximise productivity gains across industry applications and eliminate downtime.
The Blueprint for Data Sharing in Construction report is a collection of case studies and value propositions co-created by industry leaders. The findings are compiled from field research undertaken over the past few months.
The report follows Trackunit’s initiative to share construction equipment use data from around the world during the pandemic last year.
The results come together as a framework of success elements for members of the industry to utilise data as a shared resource. It includes prototypes on how to improve site safety, machine health and business processes to reduce waste and increase sustainability and profitability.
The blueprint also illustrates the close links between the various members in the construction ecosystem and how collaboration can be achieved through key contact points to reduce friction and increase early gains in business relationships.
The report includes three parts: An introduction to Data Sharing in Construction, the Success Elements Framework and concludes with a chapter on actionable approaches allowing organizations to move data sharing forward.
Soeren Brogaard, CEO, Trackunit, said, “We are at a unique place in time, where the adoption of digital technologies is making an increasing impact on the market. The Blueprint is our contribution to supporting companies and organisations in our industry to find a common language to talk about data sharing and explore opportunities for partnerships and business impact in an increasingly digitised market environment.”
