Bentley Systems invites you to join us for a day dedicated to helping you integrate digital context, digital workflows and digital components into your project lifecycle. Designed for information managers, BIM managers, digital managers and information technology executives to learn a framework for digital advancement.
Join Bhupinder Singh, Chief Product Officer, iTwin™ Services and discover how to leverage digital twins created within project delivery to become the performance digital twin for infrastructure asset performance. Optimize the reliability and performance of infrastructure assets, manufacturing and processing facilities, and resilience of cities, sites and buildings.
Program highlights include:
- Understand how Bentley’s iTwin™ Services help organizations create, analyze and visualize digital twins of infrastructure projects and assets.
- Realize the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).
- Transform work processes to ensure standards and best practices are consistently applied across projects—increasing repeatability, scalability, quality, and predictability.
After the morning keynote session, choose to attend one of the parallel industry track:
- Feeling pressure to do more with less time? Learn about SACS, the offshore structural analysis software that streamlines your workflow with new collapse analysis, integrated structural analysis for pipes and risers, and specialty features for optimizing wind farm structures in the fastest, most accurate way.
- The Process Plant industry is an asset-intensive industry where the safe, reliable and efficient operation of facilities and assets is critical to company stakeholder value and profitability. This seminar will cover the latest developments from Bentley that are being used in this industry to engineer and construct both greenfield plants and modifications to existing brownfield plants, giving stakeholders full visibility across their CAPEX projects.
- 4D Construction Planning and Scheduling is the new way to enable digital creation of the approved project delivery approach. It facilitated through the development of specific project plans and schedules that combine 3D data and time data into a single integrated model.
- In other words, 4D puts the project plan into real context, requiring the deployment of a clearly specified 3D Construction Planning and Scheduling process together to improve the delivery team’s ability to identify, manage and remove the multiple and compounding instances of waste caused by errors, confusion, and inefficiency in the planning and execution of projects.
Road and Rail Transportation
- With the back drop of growing urbanization, competition, and changing expectations of the travelling public driven by the rise of digital technologies, as a road or rail network owner-operator, consultant or contractor, you need a clear view of the opportunities, threats and challenges that lie ahead in the transportation industry.
We look forward to seeing you in Jakarta!
4D Construction Planning and Scheduling is the new way to enable digital creation of the approved project delivery approach. It facilitated through the development of specific project plans and schedules that combine 3D data and time data into a single integrated model.
In other words, 4D puts the project plan into real context, requiring the deployment of a clearly specified 3D Construction Planning and Scheduling process together to improve the delivery team’s ability to identify, manage and remove the multiple and compounding instances of waste caused by errors, confusion, and inefficiency in the planning and execution of projects.
The focus and purpose of 4D Construction Planning and Scheduling is to enrich the planning and scheduling process to achieve improved communications and stakeholder participation. It enables the creation of a robust delivery approach that can be understood, validated and reliably implemented by the project delivery team.
Owners should insist on seeing a 4D Plan as part of the Contractor’s BIM Execution Plan and the 4D Plan needs to include more than just a series of animations. It also generates visual reporting of construction schedule through the entire life of the project, including jobsite status updates. Synchro 4D Planning tool provides Real-Time Advanced Graphic Simulations, Real-Time Collaboration, Dynamic Communications, Baseline-Actual Comparison, Lean/BIM Integration, Dynamic & Static Clash Detection and Optimize Delivery Approach. For owners, the bottom line is simple-without 4D they are missing a big opportunity to save time and money altogether.
EXAMPLE OF BENEFITS
- Reduction in lost time in the project execution due to – Time lost in dealing with rework in the field caused by unplanned workspace clashes; Time lost in the field due to extra meetings convened to “talk through” the confusion in the schedule; Time lost in the field due to the occurrence of unplanned safety events that could have been avoided
- Reduction in mistakes in the field caused by lack of needed information due to – Assuming a construction plan can be developed based solely on review of the design model; Assuming the initial schedule forecast is suciently accurate based on unverified/ unreview inputs; Assuming a construction sequence is flawless without a thorough review by all stakeholders of site logistics and temporary works
- Reduction in the margins (cost avoidance) by removing unnecessary conservatism due to – Additional “float” in scheduled activities to account for “assumed delays”; Additional space allocated for activities to account for the possibility of congestion; Additional time for contractors to be on site

He is also involved in RUBY Petronas (Vietnam) FPSO PLEM construction project – producing Project Master Schedule & Manpower Loading for various projects during tender stage; assisting respective Sub-contractor to compile and generate their work master schedule for PLEM project; directing and co-ordinating planning and scheduling activities; scheduling and schedule performance monitoring (daily manpower reports and productivity performance reports); attends weekly meeting; close monitoring on CPM and assisting Project Manager on critical activities & issues; and creating a standard threshold for project schedule.
Construction companies began adopting CPM in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Critical Path Method (CPM) is project modelling technique developed in the late 1950s. By the late 1970’s and early 1980s, the personal computer made CPM affordable and accessible to the masses; so how has construction performance fared since CPM became the standard for construction planning and scheduling? For years, we have all seen the numbers and charts put up for debate showing no evidence that the original hopes and excitement of CPM is living up to its original expectation.
In construction, the CPM model is based on the input of individuals who use personal experience and historic project performance to inform their work. People must read 2D design documents showing what the project looks like first at the start (existing conditions) and what the finished project will be on completion.
To be clear, the construction delivery approach, the field operations plan, is created from the imagination of a person(s) who is required to envision the activities, duration, and dependencies of the specific project from seeing the existing conditions at the start and the construction design for the completed project at the end. Once created, they can review the delivery approach with others using the Gantt chart or network diagram.
It will never going to be enough to improve construction performance if CPM alone. Project today are more likely to end in a dispute or claim rather than be completed on time or on budget, lawyers love the baseline versus actual CPM artefacts to help sort out the mess. CPM should remain part of the foundation for planning, scheduling and the controls systems required for managing construction operations and it will continue to be required for the foreseeable future.
How can we improve performance?
Start by recognizing that 3D design changes everything and drives complexity, and for at least 60 years all engineering lead industries have known it. BIM is organised and structured by 3D spatial model. Today, many construction projects utilize 3D models for the final integrated product design’s spatial coordination to avoid fabricating and installing any component in the wrong location before production operations begin.
When it comes to 4D, the industry falsely led to believe that creating a schedule by reading 2D drawings and keyboarding into the legacy CPM software and then linking the CPM to the 3D model is right. SYNCHRO Software is doing 4D. Creating construction operations directly from 3D model at any level of 3D model detail is where 4D is the best. The critical path network and 2D documents are the derivative, they are outputs of 4D. 4D leads construction companies’s workflow and has envolved their construction management processes into the modern digital age.
It is the path of 0 Total Float Through the project
Critical path project management (CPM) is a technique used to complete projects on time by focusing on key tasks. One path through all the inter-connected tasks is the fastest avenue to take when completing any project. By focusing on the tasks that make up the critical path, the project manager maximizes the chances of completing the project on time.
No Project Deadline
By setting a deadline on the project (a Must Finish By date in Primavera P6), it results in the appearance of negative Total Float if you are late, and positive float if you are early.
Constraints affect an activity’s Total Float value. Constrained activities can show negative Total Float and can drive negative float to their successors or predecessors. Applying constraints throughout a project will affect what activities are Critical. And so, again the path of 0-total float through the project eludes you.
A project with actuals may not show a path of 0-float either. The actuals and the order of execution can affect the activities’ Total Float as well.
What Is It?
It is a quick approximation of the risk severity and does not reflect the rigor of a detailed, numerical analysis. The overall risk level can be as simple high, medium, or low (or even high/low), depending on the severity of impact and the probability of the event occurring.
High, Medium, Low Table
It helps identify high, medium and low level risks by looking at the probability of the occurrence and the overall impact to your project. For instance, a highly likely / high impact event is obviously a high risk.
Ignore, Caution, Respond Chart
The green boxes represent a combination of probability and impact that you may safely be able to ignore. The red boxes represent combinations that need to be managed. The yellow box represent risks that should be evaluated individually to determine if you should respond or not.
