Organisations involved in design, engineering and construction tend to be information rich yet knowledge poor. Information is useful, of course, but it needs to be harvested for effective re-use. It is critical therefore that your investment in information management systems be correctly set within the context of your practice’s business priorities.
It is realistic to expect that your information systems support the development of new business opportunities and the efficient execution and monitoring of projects throughout their life-cycles.
However information management is increasingly complex and you need the right expertise to ensure optimal support across your organisation. The graphic on this page demonstrates the many interfaces of information systems which could be at work in any design organisation today.
It looks daunting but GCN can help your designers and support staff review the effectiveness of the deployment of your current systems and fine tune this to suggest improvements to ensure your practice is best exploiting its information management capability.
