Construction Digital Twin
MODS Connect Activity Manager links to our visualization data hub – Reality – to provide a construction digital twin. Reality delivers real-time 3D visualization and progress status of onsite construction execution, which gives construction contractors and owner-operators a comprehensive look at the project and/or asset.
O&M activities are linked to the visualization data hub to provide a construction digital twin with access to plot plans, 3D master and project models, 360 image navigation, point cloud and survey data to access and download, asset intelligent P&IDs. Meta data and documents for inspection, engineering, fabrication and construction are also accessible here and archived for historical data retrieval.
Manage all your Integrity, Engineering and Construction data throughout the entire project and Asset lifecycle in one centralized datahub, using:
- Documents and drawings
- Reports & dossiers
- Point clouds
- 360-degree imagery
- 3D models
- Intelligent tags with metadata
Create workflows to suit your business with multiple user roles for access and sign-off permissions. Map out your workflows and digitalize your processes, step-changing towards paperless projects. Streamline management from creating to closing actions and easily communicate outstanding actions to the project team.
When linked to Reality, our Activity Management planning tools provide 4D project management though one centralized hub so that you can:
- Populate data
- Manage constraints
- Capture progress
- Close out actions
- Raise, answer and close-out queries
- Manage documents

Via the full suite of MODS Connect modules, Activity Manager’s Advanced Process Gates (APG) function can provide a full constraint management process that throughout any project phase. For example, APG provides the status of materials and engineering deliverable status to ensure that everything is construction ready.
A fully integrated query process, designed to cover site, technical and clarification queries. You can assign team members, upload documents and set certain criteria. Color-coded status and sign-off permissions with an auto generated PDF report walk you through the Raise, Answer and Close-Out query process.
Link to 4D Visuals
Activities are linked to tagged items in the visual model using our master Tag database, which sits across the full Connect suite. Color code the model based on the process stage of your activity, whether Work Pack, Fabrication or construction status. The link to our visualization data hub, Reality, provides historical data and point-cloud information to the engineering and construction teams for storyboarding and model shots.
MODS Connect Activity Manager – as with all MODS software – links seamlessly to your existing systems such as SAP, P6, Mpower and many more. Having a wealth of experience in setting up data exchanges, our team of developers is readily available to provide support through web calls and APIs.
MODS Connect Activity Manager's mobile connectivity suits iOS, Android, with both online and offline applications for mobile phones and tablets. MODS’s mobile connectivity allows you to:

- Take photos and complete mark-ups
All activity is linked directly to our reporting database for live updates in 2D and 3D making it easy to manage activities across the entire project and Asset lifecycle remotely, from anywhere and at any time.
Activity management challenges
For brownfield projects, operations and maintenance to run smoothly, countless moving pieces need to slot into place. Offsite managers often struggle to access and coalesce accurate, up-to-date information that drive strategic decisions. Manual systems suffer from errors and lack of integration, resulting in the following activity management challenges:
- Unknown, incorrect or ambiguous real-time information status
- Unverified status reports
- Conflicting information
- No traceability of status
- Inability to raise timely queries
- Lack of access to historical archives
- No visual aid to help comprehension
- Visualizing E & I (electrical and instrumentation) scope of work
- Identification of bottlenecks or unfinished issues
- Lack of remote access to information
- Lack of single-source database, with data held in individual silos
