Product Update – Quality Management

Product Update – Quality Management

Quality Management is a fundamental part of any project, but its implementation is often time-consuming. At Zutec, we’re constantly making improvements to our platform to enable our clients to achieve maximum efficiency on their projects.

Our latest product update includes two entirely new features that will aid your Quality Management procedures; a new quality checklist builder and the ability to import existing project configurations.

 

Zutec Field track app

You can use the Zutec Field app to closely track quality inspections and report progress on the Zutec dashboard. The app allows you to drop pins and perform analytics, linking inspection forms back to BIM elements to help you visualise the BIM model.

Depending on the scale of your project, the level of detail you want to track can vary. That’s why Zutec is fully customisable – you can use standard checks required on most projects, or you can adjust this if a higher level of intricacy is needed.

For example, while a standard check might include concrete pours, with Zutec you can add detail such as the mix-rate of the concrete used, measuring depths and dimensions, and other materials used. This is important because once a building is up and running, sooner or later you inevitably encounter problems. With Zutec, you don’t just know that all the right checks were performed, but you have a full register of what was inspected, when and by whom.

Having this dataset on your asset is essential during the operations phase, as you can easily identify any defects for quick remediation. However, it will also act as a safeguard, particularly with problems surrounding safety issues like fire stopping, and provide you with an added level of confidence in any insurance situation.

 

 

BIM-FieldView

 

 

 

Quality checklists builder

A key feature of the latest update is our new checklist builder, which streamlines the process of compiling quality management checklists. Previously a tedious, time-consuming activity where each page had to be built separately, this new feature is built to save you time. What might have taken a full working day in the past can now be accomplished in a matter of minutes.

The checklist builder guides you through the process, helping you select the data points you want to capture, making suggestions based on the most common requirements. You can, however, fully tailor it to suit your needs. The builder comes with over 50 pre-built templates, meaning that you can come to us without any pre-prepared documentation.

 

Zutec gives you more flexibility and freedom to manipulate your checklists than anything else currently on the market. Once a checklist has been created, you still have the ability to make further tweaks and modifications, adding more inputs if necessary. You have full access to the underlying data on the forms, adding tremendous value from a handover and FM perspective.

 

Easily import project configurations

It’s now possible to easily import project configurations from one project to another by downloading them as a single file. This is a significant improvement, saving you time and streamlining processes.

On some projects, it can eliminate the need to build configurations from scratch. Once you have found a set-up that works, you can use it to automatically populate a new project in a completely seamless process. This means set-up and onboarding times are greatly reduced, including the confirmation of access permissions, which you can now assign at scale rather than individually.

Zutec Product Update – Mobile Features

Greater Mobile and Field-Based Functionality

As a construction professional you’re always on the go. Mobile technology and field-based apps offer the efficiency and accuracy you need when it comes to real-time information gathering and team collaboration. At Zutec, we’ve seen mobile adoption grow by 35% over the past two years and we’ve responded with features which make your construction life easier, both on-site and in the office.

Inspections

With Zutec you can completely digitise your inspections processes with custom checklists and forms. This means that audits and inspections can be planned out from a desktop and pushed to mobile devices for on-site completion. However in a high-risk environment like construction, accountability and evidence are important, so we’ve added these extra features:

 

1. Secure digital signature with pin code and commentary 

This is of particular benefit when internet connectivity is an issue, which is often the case on construction sites. Signatures can still be captured securely for multiple users on one hand-held device. Clients can easily sign off on inspections from any location, no matter how remote. When the device is synced this data will be stored securely in Zutec Cloud.

Pin Code Digital Signature

2. Hold-point inspections

Construction inspection hold points are particularly important when work cannot be inspected later because a problem could be covered up. Therefore construction activity is put on hold until the inspection is complete. Unsurprisingly, an efficient turnaround is of utmost importance so integrating hold-points into digital inspections is a no-brainer. With Zutec Field, there may be hold-points through an inspection whereby sign-off and approval is required before moving to the next stage of the inspection. This feature connects to our digital signature and pin code security options, meaning that multiple stakeholders can sign off from any location, at various points throughout the inspection process.

 

 

Field Analytics

With Zutec Field, your team can now instantly see a real-time status report on their progress across various tasks. They can filter a record set to be able to prioritise tasks easily and monitor their progress. All of this connects back to Zutec Cloud for office-based users to track the bigger picture.

 

Mark-Up Drawings within the Zutec Field App

Red-lining has been around construction for years and now it’s available digitally within your drawings in the Zutec Field App. Your field-based team-members can mark-up drawings and models and link the new information directly to pre-existing layers of information. Why is this important? Say for example one of your engineers is snagging a room, they can tag an issue directly to the layer of information it applies to as well as those responsible for that information. So if an architectural drawing doesn’t perfectly match the dimensions of the room, the architect will receive notification immediately and can rectify the issue in real time, by superseding with new versions. As a result, project communication and collaboration across stakeholders becomes more efficient and productive.

 

 

As well as mobile apps and features, the Zutec platform empowers entire construction teams to work more collaboratively across the project lifecycle from CDE (Common Data Environment) to Handover and O&Ms solutions.

Zutec has been listening closely to the construction industry’s needs for over two decades now. We have worked on some of the world’s most impressive construction projects as well as many of the smaller (in many cases, more important) projects which enable populations to live their lives in comfort and safety.
