Highbar along with other technology partners facilitate the next-generation Digital Project Management Platform. Digital Project Management Platform [5D-BIM integrated with SAP ERP Supported by Owner’s Support Office (OSO)] at Nagpur Metro aims to improve project efficiencies.
Setting up an industry benchmark with one of the most innovative uses of Information Technology for infrastructure industry, Maha Metro a joint-venture of the Govt. of India and Govt. of Maharashtra announced ‘Go-Live’ of its Digital project management platform. Maha Metro’s Digital Project Management Platform (5D BIM & ERP) has gone Live exactly as planned. In line with the global best practices, Maha Metro has adopted this pioneering approach of digital project management on 5-Dimensional Building Information Modelling (5D BIM) integrated with SAP ERP supported by Owner’s Support Office (OSO) to complete its Nagpur and Pune Metro Projects with sanctioned cost and time and with highest quality and safety. Maha metro will also have BIM level 3 which is being deployed in advanced countries like UK and Singapore. Mega projects like Cross Rail of UK, Transport London, Sydney Metro and Mass rapid transit Malaysia are managing the projects on such systems. With Go Live the entire ecosystem of Maha Metro including General Consultants (GC), Detailed Design Consultants (DDC’s) and Contractors started carrying out real time transactions on this digital platform.
During Go-Live, Hon. MD-Maha Metro, Mr. Brijesh Dixit carried out the transactions on the system and viewed the project progress visually on 5D BIM platform. There were other transactions carried out in the system by various officials of Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (NMRCL). A Digital War Room has been set-up on-site at Nagpur, which will provide information on various dimensions of project management using the digital platform enabled by 5D BIM & ERP collectively at central location..
Speaking on the occasion, tech-visionary Honourable Shri. Brijesh Dixit said, “This is for the first time in India, a Mega project like Nagpur Metro has adopted digital platform. 5D BIM integrated with ERP is enabling the project to achieve the next level of project management. High level of integration is done to automate the processes and make it online. It is significant to know that a high level of integration had been done between the globally established project management softwares -RIB, Bentley, Primavera & SAP for the digital platform at Maha Metro. These softwares are otherwise used stand alone for project management in other projects.”
Large infrastructure projects normally take 8-10 years because of procedural formalities, technical and financial requirements. Technology solutions are now making it possible to bring in financial efficiency, time efficiency and reduce spends on such large mega infrastructure projects. With the same vision, Maha Metro adopted this digital platform for efficient execution of Nagpur Metro project.
