Advancements in 4D/5D models and addition of Cost and Performance management designed to boost model-based construction projects
Bentley Systems has enhanced its construction management solution, adding new features to Synchro 4D and adding new applications Synchro Cost and Synchro Perform.
Synchro 4D now offers 4D/5D model authoring with model-splitting tools to create constructible components, the ability to assign construction attributes to the model, mixed reality modeling, construction geometry placement, and web and mobile access to improve team collaboration, status updates, and progress reporting from the field.
Synchro Cost is designed to help project teams control budgets and track financial progress throughout the contract with support for multicontract capture, payment application tracking, and change order management.
Synchro Perform supports construction performance management and includes the ability to capture daily progress quantities, diaries, unplanned events, timesheets, tickets, and estimated field costs with a view to providing the shortest cycle time for project feedback.
“Construction teams need to ensure that they are in control of both the schedule and costs of their projects,” said Rich Humphrey, vice president of construction at Bentley Systems.
“The addition of Synchro Cost and Synchro Perform extends Synchro’s industry leading 4D scheduling and project management solutions to include more capabilities to help contractors manage their costs and effectively connect the planning and tracking of costs and schedule. Time is money and we want project teams to save more of both with Synchro.”
