Asta Powerproject, the global standard for construction project scheduling, launched its Building Information Modeling (BIM)-enabled and mobile-ready software in April as an optional upgrade that will give project planners the key benefits of BIM and 4D planning without the heavy expense or learning curve of a separate system. BIM is one such recent development that many U.S. firms have not yet adopted. It digitally represents the physical and functional characteristics of a building in three dimensions (3D) so that all contractors and owners are operating from the same information source and can more easily and visually spot potential construction issues earlier. That insight, in turn, saves firms time and money. The new release of Asta Powerproject also features Site Progress Mobile, which allows construction project managers to update the project schedule via their mobile phone or tablet on the job site. The app allows users to record progress, make schedule updates, take photographs and associate them with tasks or build stages, and avoid the need to re-key progress updates when they return to the office.
