Tool Time Tracking in the Field with Mobile Devices & Dashboards

Clipboards have been used in the field for as long as industrial construction has existed. With innovative automation and digitization capabilities, Owners, EPCMs, Primary Contractors and 3rd Party Auditors can more easily collect and analyze data in real-time - to support better decision making and more productive job sites.

The Challenge

Field observations are collected and communicated manually, making reports and data obsolete by the time it reaches the appropriate stakeholder. Crews have to cope with lost or inaccurate information and manual reports are error-prone and introduce duplicate entry, which increases the time to capture and communicate data and creates a lag in response time to mitigate issues.

The Solution

O3's ONTools solution provides real-time observations in the field with tablets and provides reports in a digital dashboard. This information is automatically collected and updated. Live feedback is significant for the accuracy of tool time insights. Dashboards also include comparisons against baselines, averages and areas that need readings. The solution includes:
