Digital transformation of capital projects
Groundbreaking innovation for the engineering and construction industry.
You’re not alone. The construction of today’s capital projects looks very similar to how it did 50 years ago. The difference is, today’s project costs twice as much. That’s in part because, despite accounting for the 13% of global gross domestic product (GDP), the construction industry ranks among the least digitally enabled. This lag has resulted in a lack of transparency across the value chain, which in turn causes a lag in productivity, and puts budgets, schedules and asset performance at risk.

We’ve already built the platforms, tools, and digitally-enabled processes you’ll need to improve your next project. Reduce costs and improve performance with any of these:
This survey-based piece explains how both project “owner-operators” (e.g. industrial companies) and engineering, procurement and construction firms (the companies building the projects) can make more of the digital capabilities and data they already have.
The report also introduces a new management framework, called “CAPSTONE”, which can help owner-operators and engineering, procurement and construction companies to improve returns on capital expenditures and margins, respectively.
BP implemented two innovative products to keep its people safe while working faster and more reliably.
