5 Major impacts of Automation in Construction

The wide adaptation of automation in different industries has been a trend due to its numerous advantages. Automation is used in multiple industries such as manufacturing, automotive, electronics etc. to streamline projects, increase productivity, and reduce human errors. The construction industry is one of the industries that adapted automation to achieve better project management and accelerate timelines. Here are the five major benefits of automation in the construction industry. 

  1. A streamlined bidding process – Involving one person or a team in charge of opening invitations to bid, or scheduling meetings to discuss bids can be time consuming. With automation, softwares can be programmed to send notifications to all important members of the department and can quickly access the bid and all the necessary information. All generated and used data can also be collected to derive insights in the future. 
  2. Increased productivity – Automation can help project teams to be more productive using the Common Data Environment (CDE). CDE allows users to send automated tasks and appointments reminders and track every single task progress. Additionally, project teams can have increased visibility over tasks assigned to others due to the accessibility of data and improved collaboration amongst workers in a team. 
  3. Improved employee satisfaction – Automation reduces extreme repetitive tasks such as recording data manually, storing files in inconvenient locations, and manually locating files later on by implementing automated data entry which is easily accessible and shareable with any relevant parties. 
  4. Reduced costs – Adapting automation produces a more streamlined project timelines, increases productivity, and reduces human error. It lends itself to performing a high amount of tasks without downtime which results in lesser overall costs. 
  5. Improved client experience – Automation facilitates faster responses to clients, automatic project updates, and faster payment processing. This leads to added transparency and results in a better partnership.
