Brock is continuing its effort to digitally transform the company by digitizing its pen and paper processes. The first step in the digital transformation is utilizing smart devices (tablets) to collect piece counts for scaffold inventory management and sending the data to the administrator to “ship”, or sync, to the scaffold inventory software. On a current customer site, the traditional pen and paper method, was collected in the field, carried to the administration at lunch or the end of the day, then keyed into the system manually. With difficulties in reading the hand written documents, coupled with other duties required of the admin, the scaffold tag information would not actually be keyed into the software for 20-25 days. When utilizing the tablets, the data collection time to collect and enter data, the cycle time, has been cut to 1-2 days. As a result, scaffold inventory planning is much more accurate due to up to date and accurate information.
Roberto Hernandez discovered multiple leaks while working at a customer site. Upon discovering the leaks, he immediately informed his site contact of his findings and they were able to get it corrected right away. Roberto was recognized by email on utilizing stop work authority and reporting issues as soon as possible and was awarded Brock’s Gold Coin for his engagement and Bsafe attitude.

Brock’s Managed Services group in the Technical Services Department was contracted to perform a plant wide Energy Appraisal. The appraisal found 654 items of deficient insulation that were allowing BTU’s to be lost, costing the customer $1.2 mil in extra fuel (energy) costs. The appraisal team utilized a data collection app for the first time on one-half of the scope, saving 67% of the office time to generate the final report. The dashboard shown was created with the findings and provided to the customer.
