Tuesday, August 07 2018, Kuching: The Digital Information Technology (DIT) team has embarked on a Project Information Management System (PIMS) Engagement Programme with the works packages to familiarize the project team at site with the software system.
The engagement programmme which kick-started on 11 July has so far involved five works packages which have purchased licences to operate the system at site.
These are WPC01 (Telok Melano-Sematan), WPC02 (Sematan-Sungai Moyan), WPC05 (Batang Skrang-Sungai Awik), WPC08 (Sungai Kua Bridge-Sungai Arip Bridge) and WPC10 (Bakun Junction-Sungai Tangap).
Engagement with the remaining works packages will take place from now until the end of this month.
According to IPMS Engineer Mohd Farhan Azmee, “The engagement programme provides the project team with one-to-one coaching on PIMS.”
“It also provides a refresher training to the construction management team on topics such as planning, HSE, QAQC, CMT and URW”, he added.
The turn-out at the five engagements have so far been encouraging.
PIMS had gone live late last year; however full implementation was slightly delayed as some of the works packages had yet to obtain the licence to operate the system.
Farhan is optimistic that the remaining works packages would soon purchase their licences to operate the system which is being used in construction of Phase 1 of the Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak.
PIMS is a system which integrates key information in no less than 74 business processes within a Common Data Environment (CDE), a single virtual cluster.
With just a click of a button, authorised personnel from head office down to the site office will be able to access the requested information - from construction drawings, bill of quantities, health and safety to public complaints.
In short, PIMS connects people and information across project teams, no matter where they are located.
It helps to manage documents, facilitates workflows, auditing, and application integration, from design to construction to asset management, per required standards.
At the same time, with PIMS, quality is improved, rework is reduced and project teams get to meet their deadlines.
