manages project documents for Blaze Construction (Blaze).
Blaze is a construction and engineering based company that specializes in
both superstructure and
substructure infrastructure work. This includes geo-technical work,
bored pile & micro pile work, design and construction of properties,
and other construction related activities. As with many engineering
based companies, Blaze manages a lot of tender documents &
specifications, CAD drawings, manuals, general correspondences and faxes
and a great variety of project related documents. Most of these
documents are received in paper format but some are generated in
DocControl was implemented to handle
these documents by firstly providing a centralized indexing station. The
implementation also forced Blaze to re-think their manual system and use
a standardized document type structure with common naming conventions.
The DocControl system accepts all document types, stores them
automatically in pre-determined folders, and makes them readily
available via network to all Blaze’s employees. Workers can now
retrieve and work quickly with their documents – whether it is to
read, print, email, copy, or distribute the information electronically
to other people.
