17 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    Angela Lee’s Research Metrics Reduce project postal cost (time, cost, quality) Reduce project printing cost (cost, quality) Reduce number of drawing revisions (quality) Cost/ effect of using the system (time, cost, quality) Effective operation of system (time) Methodology Series of workshops and interviews Attitudinal survey questionnaire Data generated by BIW Information Channel

18 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    To reduce postal cost (time) Measured time saved by ‘posting’ a document via the system Significantly reduced postal time, and enables project members to see if colleagues have viewed the drawing (when, and if at all). Angela Lee’s Research

19 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    To reduce postal cost (cost) Measured total postage and packaging costs Saved project a minimum of £6,282 This assumes that each company would have been sent 1 copy of each document, as not every company requires a copy and some will require more than 1; drawing are usually sent in sets so the cost of sending 1 drawing is 10p, whereas other project documents are not (36p); results do account for all the copies that have been ‘lost’ and have to be resent or additional courier costs. Angela Lee’s Research

20 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    To reduce postal cost (quality) Measured impact of receiving documents on time/ as soon as they were completed Project team in favor in terms of posting project documents Angela Lee’s Research

21 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    Conclusions from Angela Lee’s research 87% of the respondents agreed that the PIC provided significant benefits over the traditional flow of construction information. However, the benefits are somewhat restricted as the system was not introduced at the outset System outweighed nearly all postal costs System’s success depends on project participation Becomes key actor in communication network Loses effectiveness when someone refuses to participate Culture change In order to obtain the maximum benefits, the following have to be ascertained: Maintain a partnering and preferred suppliers relationship Align each company’s business process to the system More training for the suppliers and subcontractors, particularly of the benefits of the system to the whole project team Angela Lee’s Research

22 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    Number of companies using BIW Information Channel Growth in use

23 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    Client has direct access to project information Integration of entire supply chain Create information once only Allows best solution to be adopted Information on demand (pull) Correct information at right time Benefits

24 “building value by exchanging knowledge” BIW Technologies Ltd 10 Lower Grosvenor Place, London SW1W 0EN T: +44 (0) F: +44 (0) W: E:    Benefits Savings in time and costs Facilitates teamworking Transparent audit trail Reduces risk of litigation Use information for operations & maintenance No additional Hardware or Software costs
