Technical Webinar: The Age of Digital Managers in the Transportation Industry
In recent years, there was an unprecedented rise in app developers driving the information age in various sectors of the economy. With a focus on team management, it is expected that software leverage and automation in this area will outpace the effectiveness and capability of manual team management in an age where business acceleration and coordination of complex projects are much needed.
Rusty old transportation industries pose huge potential in improvement in this area for automating tasks, condition monitoring of transport assets, and even motivating teams & business productivity.
In this seminar, we have invited the winners of the 2020 HKIE Innovation of the Year Award to share with us their self-developed inventions in team and process management, and explain to us how the technology would benefit transportation engineering. The agenda includes:-
1. Real time work lists and Gantt charts for works planning;
2. Real time IoT hardware for condition monitoring and system visualization of field equipment; and
3. Block chain eforms for audit tracking.
