with XSite® workflow

It is normal to encounter a situation on a construction site where planning has to be updated to accommodate newly discovered data. It could involve an essential pipeline that cannot be moved or another underground obstacle.

The following timelines display the differences in delays and delivery times in a simple way. They share the same starting point.

”Excavator on-site detects an undocumented pipeline during cut. The operator has been adviced that all of the existing pipelines have to be preserved”
Day 1
Data gathering Operator informs site manager. Site manager calls a surveyor, who arrives from another site and surveys the pipeline.
Day 3
Data sent to designer Gathered data is sent to the designer, and the need for the update is explained.
Day 5
Design update finished and approved Design is sent to printing and is ready to be delivered to the site.
Day 6
Site manager gets the revisions Paper copies arrive at the site, and the manager begins distributing copies of the revision to other parties.
Day 7
Surveyors redo stakes After updating survey data on his devices, old stakes based on outdated plans are removed.
Day 8
Excavators start working Excavators start working according to the updated plans, with new stakes and copies in paper form.

Updating the plans with a traditional workflow took eight days of work.

Let’s explore the same situation, when using a model based workflow.

Day 1
00:02 hours
Data gathering Operator does the surveying with the Operator surveys with the machine’s bucket, utilizing the machine control system, takes a few photos, and the site manager informs the designer.
00:10 hours
Data sent to designer The collected data is automatically synchronized to the Xsite MANAGE cloud service and is immediately available to the designer.
04:00 hours
Design update finished and approved The new design is uploaded to Xsite MANAGE in a ready-to-use format.
04:01 hours
Site manager gets the revisions Machinery receives notification of updated plans, and old versions are replaced.
04:05 hours
Excavators start working Excavators start working according to the updated plans, gathering as-built data along the way.

Updating the plans with a model based workflow took only four hours!

Total time: TRADITIONAL WORKFLOW 8 working days
Total time: Xsite® WORKFLOW 04:05 hours


The traditional method took days, while a model-based process took mere hours. Even if the traditional method were rushed by a couple of days, the difference would still be substantial.
