  • Operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals can be administrative nightmares for contractors.
  • Finding, tracking, collating, and printing information is time-consuming and labor-intensive.
  • Handover can be inaccurate, incomplete and late, resulting in delays, added cost and increased risk.
  • Traditional O&M ring binders with paper copies are hard to search and can easily be lost or misplaced.


  • Capture handover information completely and accurately as work is completed – not at the end.
  • Review information and track progress efficiently – detect and resolve issues early.
  • Deliver O&M manuals digitally – printing is optional.
  • Store information securely so that it can’t be altered or deleted.


  • Aconex digital O&M manual several thousand dollars less than a traditional hard-copy manual.
  • Access to O&M information online from anywhere at any time.
  • Electronic format much more user-friendly.
  • Reduction of schedule delays that can add costs.
