During the 2017 MCAA Technology Conference, a session was held title, 60 Ideas in 60 Minutes. It allowed attendees to share some of their best solutions that could be used to improve productivity.
The winning solution was a contractor that was using a gaming keypad made by Logitech that allowed BIM technicians to pre-program sequences into keyboard. This allowed the repetitive tasks to be performed with single button clicks, saving time and monotony with each action.
In the video, Sean McGuire, MCAA’s Director of Construction Technology talks with DeWalt’s Josh Bone about the practical applications and how much time can be saved using the solution.
Although the keyboard featured in this video is a Logitech keyboard, there are many options available that offer programmable features.
