Thought Leaders Series: The full asset lifecycle and future of engineering

About this event

As engineering contractors continue to transform their operations and transition to deliver across the full asset lifecycle there’s been renewed pressure to increase the pace of digital investments and embrace modern methods of operating – technologies and practices such as BIM, Modular Construction and Design for Manufacture and Assembly continue to increase in popularity, with early adopters hoping to benefit from digital differentiation.

However, for many, adopting these technologies and practices is not sufficient to achieve a successful transformation. To be successful it requires a complete change in mindset that not only utilises technology to remove and automate manual processes but focusses on delivering projects on time, on budget and at high quality.

In this must-see webcast we are pleased to present renowned engineering and construction expert, Jaimie Johnston MBE, Board Director and Head of Global Systems at Bryden Wood, who will share his insights and approach for achieving best practice and delivering high-quality results. Jaimie is joined by IFS’s Kenny Ingram, VP – Engineering, Construction and Infrastructure will discuss how this new way of thinking is impacting the industry and why it’s never been more crucial that your ERP backbone is fit for purpose. Kenny is joined by.
