  • Plan for presentation LIVE DEMO Plan would be to show live demos ppts just showing what I would show and for others to understand the flows>

    TCC Site from Dimensions using base data, renamed and have a Site ready for Con-Expo

    If we have two monitors it worked well at Dimensions to show the ppt on one monitor and Live Software on the other. If only one monitor my preference would be for the live demo

    Welcome to Con Expo and a brief presentaion on the Connected Community for Project Visualization, Management and Collaboration. A few months ago, we developed a job site right here in Las Vegas and used our tools to set up communication.

    We will show you how to improve site productivity by increasing communication and collaboration between project stakeholders and the variety of tools Trimble has to help you with these tasks.

    Con Expo Offsite Prep Site:

    There are many phases of a job site: Site Prep, Tracking Progress, Monitoring Operations and Productions and finally, Project Closure. Communication is high among: engineers, data prep personnel and field users of both Trimble SCS900 and GCS900 grade control systems. Today well step you through a Connected Site Workflow using our own Las Vegas OffSite location and where we used our tools.

    *Communications Page

    Well start with looking at the communications and net work thats been set up.

    The connection from the ISP (internet service provider Las Vegas Net) (They beam internet to the site using a Microwave link ) (this link is point to point like isdn)

    Microwave Link hardware catches the signal and is wire connected (Ethernet) to the on-site wireless bridge hardware. This hardware connects wirelessly to two additional wireless bridge terminations in other trailers.

    Connected by wire to each wireless bridge termination is an SNM920. These SNM920s provide a connection for wired Ethernet in the building along with a WiFi hotspot. (SNM920 has 4 Ethernet ports and also distributes wifi)

    *Resources Page

    Next we needed data management and a simple file repository to store the data. The ability to share the data is key and by using The Connected Communities sophisticated permissions, the contractor can create one repository and give access to certain folders to just the owner and allow other folders to be seen by only the sub contractors. This is exactly what we did at Trimble to collect the off site data prep information. We put our site plans in folders to access, Geoffrey put all his communication needs in a folder, we set up a Trimble Synchronizer Data folder to collect the site topos and another one for design files.

    We even enabled these folders to receive emailed images and trip details. Any and all needed prep work. We also used our Forums to communicate back and forth with each other on relevant issues.

    First step was site reconnaissance. What does the site have? Are there existing power and utilities, where are the vehicle access pointsWhere will we get internet access? Where will we put our base stations and decide which communication tools to use?

    This is the planning stage and as much site visualization that we could do assisted us with informed up to date information in order to make the best decisions.

    *We then entered into the Site Recon follow-up phase.

    We needed to get a site calibration, inspect the site and figure out where to put a base station.

    We had a range of Trimble products to choose from:

    This is the planning stage and as much site visualization that we could do assisted us with informed up to date information in order to make the best decisions.

    *Job Site

    We then entered into the Site Recon follow-up phase. We needed to get a site calibration, inspect the site, send in more detailed site images and figure out where to put a base station.

    *Job Site

    TCC Sync and TCC allowed us to remotely see the work being done in the field, rather than wait until the crew is back in the office.

    As we progress, we are getting more people involved in the project, we brought the design and work order information into TCC.Turn on SCS900 layer

    We selected the TCA1 (SCS700, Camera, Trips)Site Topos Uploaded Using TCC SyncUsed Visual Organizer to Display:Control Points Designs Work Orders

    Weve inspected troubled areas - We had the crew use our Trip application and do a little inspection so we knew what we were dealing with and could see the location of the issueTurn on the Inspection layerWe had the crew take photos to document additional site information for us to use back in the office.Turn on the geopicture layer

    *Then we used Business Center-HCE and brought in the files, enhanced the data, made changes and then published out to TCC for those stakeholders to view the data. Not everyone uses or has access to BC-HCETurn on the other layers and turn on the TBC layer

    *Cut / Fill

    The dirt supervisor wanted to look at the cut/fill map and Mass haul Planning information We needed to figure out which machines to useWe need to see what machines are available in our case, who can we rent from We need to determine -- when are we starting the earth moving

    Looking at the cut/fill map, the dirt supervisor sees another area he would like additional information

    Since the crew was still at the offsite, we asked them to do another topo.

    ***Tracking Page

    Turn on the Tracker Layer

    We used the Visual Organizer, selected the Tracker layer and added the resources. We could then see where the crews are and assigned the work order to one of them they just needed to stake it out and send back the data. Since they had a tablet, well sent them a messageImages

    Well seeing the site map wasnt enough we asked the early team that was on site to take photos.

    We set up a page, adding our GeoPicture app so they could email site photos as they took them, allowing others to see what we were dealing with at the offsite location. As you can see. they also took photos of the control points so people on site could see where they are. Likely locations for fuel dumps etc, identifying existing infrastructure, locations for site cabins, base stations and/or radios.

    *So where are we in the Schedule, whats working and whats not working

    We need to identify any potential problems and get a handle on what are our assets, equipment, vehicles, people and other resources are doing.

    Assets are time and money and if not needed, we need to quickly deploy them to another project.

    *Vision Link Page: login: trimble_test password: password

    Lets use one of our new tools Vision Link to see the location of our fleet, health of the machines, activity and utilization. We need to see what can be used for this project and which other project we can pull assets.

    Lets drill in deeper to see asset utilization.

    *Web Cams Page: and hopefully a PTZ page with another camera

    Okay, I think we have a better handle on which assets to deploy, lets take a look at t
