“Conventionally, two measuring persons, a photographing person, a recording person, and an inspector worked on a team of five people to measure the dimensions of each block using a measuring tape. This method required approximately 45 minutes of man-hours per profile. Our newly developed system has reduced on-site measurement time by as much as 20 minutes of man-hours per profile,” says Mr. Taketoshi Mizuta, the section chief of the ICT/CIM Promotion Group, Civil Engineering Administration Department, Civil Engineering Division of Sumitomo Mitsui Construction.
