Construction professionals discussing SAP construction, engineering and operations software

Engineering, Construction, and Operations

Build bigger, greener projects using our engineering and construction management software to collaborate, reduce risk, and shine.

Digital, connected construction

Why digitalize? Think real-time visibility, automatic time tracking, smooth intercompany collaboration, fully connected job sites – and more.

Key trends addressed by engineering, construction, and operations software from SAP
Construction collaboration and BIM

Collaboration and building information modeling (BIM) mitigates risk – from bigger projects to eco concerns to construction complexity.

Supply chain challenges

Connected supply chains and smart prefab construction can solve material shortages and reduce labor costs while improving timelines.

Engineering and construction sustainability

Construction generates 25% to 40% of the world’s carbon emissions. Reduce your footprint by adding sustainability to your selection criteria alongside cost and quality.

New engineering and construction technology

The world wants smart buildings. What will you need in your tool kit? AI, augmented reality, automation, analytics, BIM, and the IIoT.

Construction labor shortage

How are companies meeting labor shortages? By digitalizing, automating, and turning smart prefabrication into a differentiator.
