Business Intelligence Systems Improving Safety Management

Civil Engineering projects produce large volumes of process and monitoring data. Traditionally, to share this information, projects spend hours in Excel, manually organising data, creating pivot tables and charts etc.

To improve this and to provide ‘real time’ information, we are using Business Intelligence (BI) tools to collect, integrate and analyse project data, this removes information silos and enables better information sharing and collaboration.

Useful, Actionable, Management Information:

The computational power of BI allows for the production of better visual statistics, providing easier access to and broader, more frequent analysis of data. This enables quicker identification of ‘close call’ trends and appropriate interventions, improving overall performance.

BI reports are available to any user on the project and allow the whole organisation to interact with and benefit from ‘self-service’ analysis and live information can be manipulated through filtering, to answer queries immediately.

BI reporting platforms can be tailored to suit the information needs of different stakeholders e.g. client, section managers, contractors etc

Delivering intelligence for decision makers:

Organising integrated data visually is critical to gain insights, identify and respond to changes in safety conditions as they occur. BI delivers more intelligence for decision making by getting the most from data sources by:

  • aiding better evaluation of safety initiatives
  • enabling the detection and resolution of problems
  • guiding appropriate adaptive mitigating measures
  • providing the information needed to make proactive safety decisions
