Quantification of the Benefits of Digitalization in Tunnel Construction
Are we in the middle of a new industrial revolution in tunnel engineering built around digital technologies? The promise of new efficiencies brought about by automation of repetitive tasks, data driven analytics culminating in machine learning and tantalising artificial intelligence has prompted an IT investment drive in some cases up to 5% of revenue. In an industry where profit margins are commonly below this Angus explores whether the industry is currently realising benefits of this investment and provides insights into ways in which the industry can navigate the various headwinds and barriers that currently exist.
