Equipment makers assemble to digitize construction machinery data

Dive Brief:

  • The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has announced a new digitization task force aimed at helping facilitate tech adoption on construction sites. The main focus will be finding solutions for inefficiencies directly related to equipment used on jobsites. The task force met for the first time this summer, setting an overall goal for improving efficiencies on jobsites and identifying pain points to address.
  • The task force grouped the identified pain points for their customers, made up of contractors and equipment operators, into three areas: end user adoption and awareness; data sharing and integration; and distribution and service.
  • AEM emphasized that the task force will not focus on finding solutions for issues involving design and documents, change orders or contract management. All of the digitization efforts will be concentrated into on-site equipment.
