The Royal Melbourne Hospital Manages Operations with Aconex

Project name: Royal Melbourne Hospital Dynamic Manuals | Industry: Health & EducationProject size: US$228 million | Location: Melbourne, Australia

The Royal Melbourne Hospital has deployed Dynamic Manuals, a member of the Aconex Handover suite, for mobile asset information management. The hospital’s operations team uses the tablet-based, Windows 8-compatible solution to access and update its digital operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals on site.

Challenges

  • O&M manuals stored as hard copies and on compact discs.
  • Incompleteness, inaccuracy and risk of becoming outdated.
  • Documents and drawings difficult to locate and search for asset data.
  • Up to four hours required to pore over paper drawings or flip through documents in three-ring binders.

Solutions

  • Dynamic O&M data stored, updated and managed securely in the cloud.
  • Easy-to-navigate, digital knowledge database.
  • Mobile and barcode / QR-code access to information on every asset in the facility.
  • Ability to collect and update O&M information during future capital projects.

Results

  • Real-time asset information at the operations team’s fingertips – anytime, anywhere.
  • Fast, targeted searches for asset data.
  • O&M manuals up to date and safe from the effects of unforeseen events.
  • Seamless handover from construction to operation for future projects.
