The Keyframe platform can deliver a flexible and effective solution that will help you save time and money if you are involved in any of the following industry sectors.
The Keyframe application is specifically designed to support infrastructure projects. In particular, Keyframe can help large and complex projects to finally link:
into a single, user-friendly, integrated Common Data Environment (CDE). These abilities are delivered by the integrated solution outlined in the What makes Keyframe so different section (below). More information on Keyframe’s support for infrastructure projects is also provided in the link below.
Many of the capabilities required to complete a large infrastructure project are also needed for smaller building tasks. Keyframe’s ability to meet these needs has been rigorously developed and tested, so the application can meet the practical needs of builders developing projects from a single home to a large development including many apartments.
Keyframe has the proven ability to capture and visualise the location of pipes, wires and fibre optic cables, whether they are above or below ground. This ability is of great value in construction because it can let your team identify the location of services before implementing earthworks. Keyframe can also give organisations the ability to map their utility infrastructure accurately. Mapping the infrastructure in this way can facilitate maintenance and management. These capabilities can help reduce many types of risks while also minimising costs.
The Keyframe solution can draw in detailed photogrammetry, photography, LiDAR, and other data, to produce very accurate surveys of streets, buildings and structures (e.g. light and power poles). Additionally, the ability to link the visual elements to detailed specification, design, maintenance, and other documents can greatly simplify inventory management.
Keyframe is unique. To deliver each of the capabilities required by each industry sector, Keyframe is designed to bring together all of the key functions needed by diverse users. The key functions of this integrated environment are shown to the right. Each function is specifically designed to make the technology work for you. These include the following.
Keyframe is built around a data management system that can combine a wide range of data types.
In practice, this means that Keyframe can use this core capability to deliver the foundation for a Common Data Environment (CDE). This CDE can help to aggregate the information you need. Most importantly, Keyframe’s data aggregation systems are designed to make accessing and using the information very simple, so you can readily apply the collated information for effective decision making.
Keyframe delivers an advanced and innovative visualisation system that integrates BIM, GIS, point clouds and photogrammetry.
Keyframe’s ability to integrate so many different types of visual data quickly and efficiently is a game-changer. By using Keyframe, you can now rapidly integrate the models you need for planning, design, implementation, management and ongoing maintenance.
Keyframe is fundamentally designed to deliver ground-breaking Knowledge Management capabilities that are specifically aligned to meet your industry needs.
These capabilities mean that you will be able to directly access a wide range of information that is normally locked away in other silos. For instance, construction-industry users can click on objects within the Keyframe visualisation to access, review and mark up contracts, specifications, design drawings, and many other types of project-related content.
Workflow and Collaboration tools are being developed to support effective coordination between stakeholders so that activities can be completed more quickly and cost-effectively.
In particular, to support the construction industry, these capabilities align with the ISO19650 and ISO9001 standards, so these mandated requirements can be achieved as a part of your standard practices. This capability can help make your organisation standards-compliant and assist in streamlining processes to meet your goals more effectively.
The Keyframe platform is evolving to automate common processes by leveraging advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) methods.
Each of these automation systems can reduce workloads and help to avoid costly human errors. Ultimately, the intent of Keyframe is to remove much of the procedural drudgery out of project management, so that managers can focus on what is important.
Keyframe is built on an open system architecture, which allows it to interact flexibly with other systems.
For example, it applies open file formats, such as Industry Foundation Class (IFC), so that data from other systems can be integrated more readily. Therefore, the Keyframe solution can break down existing DE silos through data linking and integration. In practical terms, this means that you can continue to use existing DE applications and integrate data outputs in Keyframe.
Keyframe can give you access to spatial data such as LiDAR, photogrammetry and GIS to provide valuable context to your project data.
Keyframe is the only construction-industry focussed solution that can bring together the different Digital Engineering data types into a spatial context to deliver integrated knowledge that enhances real-world decision making. In other words, this is the platform that supports spatially integrated Digital Engineering. By applying Keyframe, you can reduce risks and costs, while streamlining workflows and compliance.
By linking asset information to the BIM, Keyframe can deliver unparalleled insights that greatly simplify your work. By clicking on an element within the BIM you can access, annotate and manage documentation related to that asset. This approach is game-changing because it allows all authorised team members to access the information they need efficiently.
The Keyframe application is highly scalable and flexible, which means that it can handle the largest projects or the smallest logistics management issue. Consequently, Keyframe can be used widely in the construction industry to help optimise tasks by streamlining processes and activities.
Keyframe provides a way to integrate new data quickly. This presents numerous opportunities. For instance, LiDAR scans can be captured and integrated to check as-built status against the design. In practice, this can aid in the timely identification of problems.
This platform is designed to support the planning, implementation and maintenance of constructed assets. Keyframe can collate appropriate data for asset development and maintenance through the project cycle. This data can then be handed over to facilitate through-life support. Consequently, it is the first system that can truly be used to provide broad-based capabilities over the whole of an asset’s life cycle.
The Keyframe application is broadly deployable, so staff in the office and on-site can access these advanced capabilities readily. In practice, this means that everyone can access the information they need to do their job.
