How Design And Collaboration Technologies Shape The Electrical And Construction Industry?by Milton Fernandes We are committed to developing safe
About 25 years ago, the electrical system engineers, consulting engineers and specifiers had used PC-powered spreadsheets and calculators for designing and specifying the systems. The simulation was used to be done on a bench-top. Then, CAD had been in infancy, as the server processing speeds were measured in MIPS and a CD-ROM was used for downloading the Product specifications.
With time, the industry did evolve, adapt itself and harness the emerging technologies. The engineering models are now based on better understanding and responses to business impacts with the effect of the new power technologies like the building automated controls, sensor-based smart systems and renewable energy. Thus by using the design collaboration tools, like VR-based simulation, CAD, 3D printing and rapid prototyping, the designs are leveraged.
But what if your firm is much ahead of the curve to predict how will the business be looking like now had the view been there on the horizon long ago? From which new business models would you have earned a competitive edge? What is waiting in store for the upcoming 10 to 15 years?
In the AI and data-driven design age, the consulting engineers in Brisbane depend on certain factors for the electrical and construction project which further radically shift the business models for reshaping the construction, distribution and electrical power industry –
- New “Computational Design” Approaches
- Global Collaboration Technologies
- Virtual Design Tools
- Crowd-Sourced Design Tools
a. Designing With Endless Data Points – On harnessing a huge quantity of data for new and customized products, will "computational designs" be migrated into the power distribution market and then change the specifiers' role?
b. The Power Design “Craft – Do the high-end CAD and AI-enabled design tools take out the design’s craft, or accelerate options and expand interactions in between specifiers and customers?
c. Connecting The Silos – With the silos concept being broken down into concept, designs, engineering and manufacturing – how will the contractors and specifiers’ roles change to create new automated design and collaboration tools?
d. Designing the Assets as the New Revenue Commodity – With the automated design “assets” becoming the commercial commodities, will it be creating new product and revenue channels for the consulting engineers working in constructions and electrical systems as well as the specifiers?
e. Hyper-Local Or the Global Markets – Will the new collaborative design tools be helping the designers, specifiers and local contractors for expanding their market reach, and allow the national or global competitors towards serving the regional markets?s
f. Automating Designs: Whether Jon Killers or the Creativity Accelerator? – Power engineering and designs will advance, but will automation and AI lessen the designers’ need or democratize the design functions like allowing the professionals in participating in designs and specifications? Or else, will these tools be forcing the multipliers to allow the consulting engineers towards being more creative, accelerate their output and enhance their value?
g. Global Design and Manufacturing Collaboration – For years, the aerospace industry is engaged in aircraft parts designing and manufacturing at multiple locations. So, will the building and power engineering and design industry be following the same suit using the new and powerful collaboration tools? Will it be creating new business opportunities, or consolidating the market for the power design and specification specialists?
It is possible to measure reasonable predictions in 3 or 4-year spans in fast-changing markets like the building and power distribution technologies. Rather, looking out to 10, 15 and 20 years will need to come across certain questions, probe how will the shifting business models create an impact on business and what opportunities will be there on the business horizons.
