Chiyoda Corporation is a global engineering company headquartered in Yokohama, Japan. It specializes in oil and gas midstream services, including natural gas facility design and construction.
With more than 5,200 employees around the world, Chiyoda needed to optimize its construction labor management processes to create efficiencies, reduce costs and gain a better understanding of its global construction site operations.
To address this need, Chiyoda developed a system to accurately track employees and work progress at construction sites by leveraging IoT data. But the system struggled initially to easily visualize and analyze such a large amount of dynamic data.
Using standard GIS and business intelligence tools, which were cumbersome to use, costly and difficult to maintain, required developers to write complex code in the cloud.
