Documentation Problem Slows Construction at Plant Vogtle Nuclear Plant

Here is a perfect example of why construction projects should go paperless with a collaborative construction project management application that connects the entire supply chain. The August Chronicle reported that documentation problems are slowing construction of the Vogtle Nuclear Power Plant. http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/metro/2012-12-18/documentation-problem-slows-vogtle-construction
“The comments came from Wil­liam Jacobs, a nuclear engineer the commission hired to monitor construction. He testified that a Louisiana subcontractor making components for the reactors was new to the nuclear field and not accustomed to the requirements to document every step in the fabrication process. Correcting the mistakes took eight months for one of its modules, which still hasn’t arrived at Vogtle.”
With a collaborative construction project management application like EADOC the prime contractor, Owner, and Owners consultant would see that the sub was not submitting their quality control documents on a daily basis. They would have complete visibility into the sub contractors document control process because it is integrated with the entire supply chains information management process. With today’s complex capital projects project teams need to quickly and efficiently share information. There is no reason to wait for the monthly progress meeting to find out one of the team members has fallen behind or be blaming project delays on paperwork.
