Description

Description

Automated Machine Guidance (AMG) can be a misleading phrase. While a machine knows what specific elevation a surface needs to be, operators are ultimately responsible for the grade. It is important that operators have all of the information to ensure that the equipment is producing design conditions. With only grade specified in an AMG model, it is easy for operators to not understand what they are grading and the importance of grades. This class shows how Sundt Construction uses AMG to communicate with operators. If a roadway is changing from a shoulder to a barrier, it is something operators need to know, but it is not something immediately obvious by looking at a view of a surface. By adding line work and text, it is possible to easily communicate hinge points and any other information that might aid the construction process. Learn about the importance of communicating with the operator, what to communicate, and how to do so. If your firm has technology in the field that is providing information to equipment operators, this class is for you.

Target Audience

Eric Cylwik

Eric Cylwik is the virtual construction engineer for Sundt's Heavy Civil division. Before working exclusively for the heavy civil division, Eric focused on adapting BIMs from the office to the field for Sundt's GC & concrete divisions. He now focuses on creating Virtual Design and Construction models that highlight technology's capability to enhance the way construction is performed in the field for horizontal construction. Focusing on infrastructure, he has been able to leverage parametric modeling to create construction-quality bridge, road, and trench models that are used for survey surfaces, machine control, quantity take offs, utility coordination, constructability reviews. Eric has helped Sundt procure almost $1 billion of alternative delivery method projects. Eric graduated from Arizona State University with a Degree in Design Studies with an Emphasis in Digital Visualization. He is also a certified professional in several vertical and horizontal BIM and VDC softwares.
