The value of transparency
Besides influencing project performance, quality and timeliness of information also define how the project interacts with the outside world. In a context of ever growing interdependence, stricter quality standards and more stringent controls, optimizing all aspects of information flow management becomes a strategic priority that, other than regulations and requirements, may represent one of the key factors determining the success of engineering projects, in so far as it helps to achieve the informed consensus of citizens and stakeholders, to reduce litigation risks substantially, and to shorten document cycle time.
Territorial marketingThe reporting generated by the platform may be used to feed different communication tools, from traditional to web based ones, so as to provide the general public with clear, well-timed and reliable information regarding works progress, territorial interferences and mitigation works. In addition to this, environmental monitoring, safety management and impact studies are other sources of valuable, interesting information for society at large that may be communicated very effectively.
Works documentation Producing reports on progress, status, tests, quality control, environmental monitoring, safety, and all associated requirements can take a lot of time, often putting work behind schedule. From this point of view, a unified information flow is a time-saving, simplifying solution that, integrating documentation functions into normal professional activities, provides supervisors and third parties with a direct overview of the development of a project.
Planning the territoryFocusing on information in the advanced management of complex situations enables SPM consulting to develop further skills in planning, works direction and strategic development, integrating territory and infrastructures on one side and design, planning, realization and management on the other. In this way, it is possible to range from engineering activities to the support to administrations and managing authorities; to integrate communication and territory; to transform accounting and reporting into high surveillance; to define new quality standards and better services for the entire sector.
