Seminar: Digitalization and Lean Construction

September 14th, 09:30 am CET

Welcome to TechniaTranscat´s event on Digitalization & Lean Construction! Come join us at Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Radisson Blu SkyCity Hotel on September 14, 2016. At the event you will hear Skanska, Projektengagemang, Svensk Byggtjänst, Dassault Systèmes and many more to give their view on how to work with Digitalization and Lean Construction. 

Numerous reports have well documented the slow adoption of new technologies in the AEC industry compared to other industries. However, the possibilities made available by digitalization in combination with Building Information Modeling, will according to a BCG* report change the game fundamentally in AEC. The efficiency and quality gains enabled along the value chain will transform the industry and ultimately help companies become more competitive and profitable.

TechniaTranscat´s Digitalization & Lean Construction event is a conference focusing on the whole spectrum of digitalization, lean construction and lean manufacturing from a business, process and functional perspective. This event brings together our customers, partners and leaders from across the industry to network and gain insight into new trends and experiences.

Learn from others how to transform your business and become more competitive and profitable with the help of digitalization.

Get inspired by future technology trends and meet global influencers when it comes to Lean Construction.
