This video provides a brief introduction to Intergraph Smart Materials Mobile Scan, a scanning solution that is fully integrated with SmartPlant Materials.
Intergraph Smart Materials Mobile Scan is a mobile application that enables barcode and RFID tag scanning out and about in the yard. The app is fully embedded in SmartPlant Materials – reading data from design and procurement and sharing data with planning and construction. Utilizing Bluetooth, the app can connect to any UHF RFID Scanner and will make usage of the GPS geotagging within the device itself.
Losing material is a huge problem on sites. When materials have been inaccurately received, poorly categorized, or misplaced, it takes much longer to locate them when needed. If they are not found, more are ordered, leading to unnecessary waste. One of the problems is that logging deliveries and locating materials is often handled manually, which introduces a risk from human error. Delays and errors in this area can have a dramatic downstream impact on planning and construction and ultimately the cost and delay of projects.
Smart Materials Mobile Scan, a mobile application that is fully embedded in SmartPlant Material, enables barcode and RFID tag scanning out and about in the yard and helps eliminate these delays and errors.
