Design Tech Meetup: Data-Driven Decision Making
Critical decisions must be made throughout a project lifecycle, but oftentimes they are made with little more than the experience held in the collective memory of project teams. Collecting data throughout the project life cycle and building operations can unlock the insights the built world so desperately needs. Technology is being deployed in all phases, but how are we connecting the data to decision making? The answers lie in understanding the connective tissue that transforms the data into information. In this presentation, we will present strategies to utilize at all phases of the building lifecycle so that you can understand and decide on your projects on how to achieve data-driven decision making.
- Understand the approach to collecting and analyzing data at all phases of the building lifecycle to improve future projects
- Identify early decision-making impacts on the overall project budget
- Understand the importance of defining data standards during contract negotiations
- Provide specific examples of solutions that are providing data-driven decision-making opportunities and their impact on projects
