More than 40 presentations highlighting best practices for project safety from design through construction as well as topics relevant to the Pacific Northwest are included.

#WP-PIMS-2018 Project Information Management Systems in the Deep Foundations Industry White Paper
DFI Project Information Management Systems (PIMS) Committee, Vanessa Bateman, Massimo Mucci, Mark Petersen, and Jamey Rosen
PDF, 8 pgs

This document provides a general introduction to the concepts and applications of a Project Information Management System (PIMS) to the geotechnical foundations industry. While geotechnical projects have always generated data and created related visualizations and analyses, in the past decade the industry has seen an increase in specifications and owner requirements for formal data management and associated project submissions. At the same time, new and adapted technologies are emerging (the nature and rate of adoption of these differ across regions and owners) that allow increased automation and greater digitalization and generation of data in increasing volumes. The PIMS Committee of Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) was formed to guide the industry in navigating these trends and provide tools to DFI members to maximize the benefits from information management. This document was written by the DFI PIMS committee to provide some non-technical guidance to the industry on these concepts.
