Digitisation for construction product manufacturers: a plain language guide – summary

IET factfile: Digitisation for construction product manufacturers - summary

This document is an extract of the full report that provides guidance on the digitisation of construction product information.

Manufacturers of construction products produce a significant part of the information required to bring about a safer construction industry, but currently, this information isn’t structured or shared in a consistent way.

If UK construction is to meet the challenges of a digital future and respond to the requirements of a new building safety regulatory system, it needs manufacturers to structure and share their data safely and sustainably.

This factfile defines digitisation, digitalisation and digital transformation, describes the benefits of structured data, sets out steps to digitisation and how trade associations can help, and more.
