CDX Task Force Abstract #3:
Automating Work in Place (WIP) Reporting
IN ORDER TO improve construction productivity, we need to spend less time tracking the work that we did, so that we can spend more time doing. CPC intends to collaborate with the U.S. chapter of XBRL (Extensible Business Reporting Language), as well as the Construction Specification Institute (CSI) to form a CDX task force committee focused on aligning standard Metadata fields from bid pre-qualification forms to final payment applications.
WE WILL on a pioneer project by capturing redundant form fields and integrating them with XBRL and CSI taxonomy standards. The proposed benefits include a CDX-certified integration, which would allow for an automated check of XBRL and CSI administrative data, improving quality of financial and progress reporting data.
