There are many hidden data entry and validation costs between operations and maintenance systems and engineering procurement and construction (EPC) firms. The good news is that 60% of those hidden costs can be avoided.

In the article, The Top Three Causes of Contractor and Engineering Misalignment, you will uncover the three primary sources of hidden costs:

  • Different work styles, personalities, and motivations
  • Over-reliance on email and file transfer protocol (FTP) communications
  • "As-builts" not being reflected in drawings

The article then explains how an engineering information management (EIM) solution can contain all parties' costs and misalignment risks for greater success.
