Procore working with AWS
By Adam FreillConstruction Software
Software collaboration set to bring advanced digital twins to the construction industry.
Construction management software firm Procore Technologies has announced it is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to leverage AWS IoT TwinMaker to extend the value of construction data into facility operations.
The tools AWS IoT TwinMaker provides accelerate the creation of digital twins for buildings, factories, industrial equipment and production lines. Procore’s platform serves to connect all construction stakeholders in the lifecycle of a built asset.
The use of AWS IoT TwinMaker will allow Procore data to be integrated from design and construction into operations. Procore project owners will be able to incorporate as-built information from Procore with real-time data sources using TwinMaker, extending the value of construction information into operations. This consolidation of information can streamline operations and maintenance and enable lifecycle analysis of portfolio assets.
“We’re very excited about our partnership with AWS. Roughly 80 per cent of the lifecycle cost of a project is in the operations phase,” said Tiffany LaBruno, product director, owners at Procore. “With this partnership we can leverage Procore’s course of construction data during that operations phase to help owners reduce costs, optimize performance, and be better prepared for future project needs.”
AWS IoT TwinMaker will make it faster and easier to create digital twins of real-world systems. Using AWS IoT TwinMaker, developers can get started quickly to build digital twins of devices, equipment and processes by connecting AWS IoT TwinMaker to data sources like equipment sensors, video feeds and business applications. Built-in connectors for integration with sensors, 3-D visualization and downstream data analytics are transforming the built environment.
