101  GOV E RNMENT electronic data sharing based on industry stand- ards, the added complexity that comes with mul- tiple teams involved in the project required MRTC to address and ensure collaboration across teams. Bentley Systems’ Microsoft Azure-powered solution enables MRTC to improve precision of construction and to improve project safety by enabling easy exchange of the correct information between the project teams. The use of the CDE has enabled more than 1,500 users to collaborate on and share more than 45,000 documents, cor- responding to 750GB of design files. The ability to manage and utilise this data provides the basis for confident decisions and actions in both design and construction. The solution has also enabled widely dispersed teams, including numerous external vendors, to work with a federated design model on the complex project. Poh Seng Tiok, director of planning and design for MRTC noted that on a project of this scale and complexity, it is essential to effectively man- age and share the huge amount of data across the entire project – from design and construction, through to operation and asset management. “We need to make sure that all the different [pro- ject] phases are well covered and information that we build up during design, and during construc- tion are taken forward during the operation and maintenance stage for better understanding,” Tiok said. “By turning to the Bentley/Microsoft cloud- based solution, we are able to streamline collabo- ration across all teams and identify and mitigate potential issues, before they impact cost, schedule, and safety. We expect to increase productivity by about 35%, through reducing design rework by providing real-time, accurate information.” Kaushik Chakraborty, Bentley Systems’ vice president and regional executive for Asia South, said: “The KVMRT project demonstrates how the world’s infrastructure projects are ‘going digital’ through the power of cloud services to improve project delivery and asset performance. Together with Microsoft, we are pleased to see organisations tapping the power of the cloud to realise the potential of real-time business insights and collaboration to deliver greater effi- ciency in a highly complex industry.” “We expect to increase productivity by about 35%, through reducing design rework by providing real-time, accurate information” Construction of the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit (KVMRT) system’s Sungai Buloh– Serdang–Putrajaya (SSP) line
