Full workshops content:

Course name: Next Generation PMOs - Combining People and Machines
This workshop puts you on the other side of the table – you are here to build AI and automation software for Hs2. What are you going to do?

The point of this session is to enable you to ask the right questions back in your own business. You will learn how to:
  • • Identify valuable problems
  • • Translate problems into software requirements
  • • Build the AI and automation components
  • • Deploy quickly and iteratively
  • • Evidence return on investment
To support the above you will be provided with case studies of how others have successfully and unsuccessfully done it in the past.  
 

 

Attendees will learn the fundamentals of AI and automation product management in project controls.

You will learn from the CEO and Product Team at Nodes & Links.

 

Topics Included

The workshop will cover:
  • Introductions
  • Overview of AI and ML including AI in everyday life 
  • Walkthrough of the journey for ML in data-driven risk analysis  
  • Interactive comparison of traditional approach to data-driven approach 
  • Interpretation of risk insights to become transformative action 
 

Eligibility Requirements

Accepted participants will have familiarity with planning and/or risk management

Workshop Benefits

The audience will be able to see the power of machine learning in avoiding bias, uncovering unknown risks and mastering complexity.


We intend to educate participants on the manner in which data-driven tools can be used to forecast and estimate risk and uncertainty in project schedules. In a workshop, we will show how this technology can be used to quickly understand the risk in a schedule and provide insights on where to take action to mitigate this risk. Starting with an anonymised P6 schedule, we will ask the audience to answer some questions in advance of the Project Controls Expo workshop. After explaining the concept, we will then show how the same schedule can be analysed using a Machine Learning (ML) model.

Finally, we will walk through the true value of the approach, which is to confidently inform action to improve the project outcome. Thus, the audience will see how applied ML shapes the successful outcome of a project.  
 

Attendees will learn the fundamentals of AI and ML and the real-world application of Deep Learning technology in schedule risk analysis.

The content is being developed by senior engineering and risk management teams. This ensures that the resultant workshop covers not just machine learning theory but its application through data science and risk engineering.

Participants will get an overview and understanding of the adoption and implementation of digital construction (BIM) in a tier 1 construction company. Gaining hands on understanding and experience with some of the digital tools utilised.  

Gain hands on knowledge and practical basic skills in the use of core digital tools that are utilised day to day in a construction company.
Best practice and lessons learnt will be shared to support individuals on the journey to utilising Digital construction in their role and organisations.

This course is mapped to the following standards or guides:

  • This course is focused on in-depth understanding of the Building Information Modelling and it’s vast applications for development in various applications.

This course based on Sir Robert McAlpine input for a detailed analysis of Building Information Modelling.
