Patrick Eldridge to Participate in Panel at LCI Lean in Design Forum
Patrick Eldridge, software engineer and lead mechanical engineering associate at Kohrs Lonnemann Heil Engineers, Inc. (KLH Engineers), will participate in a special interactive panel at the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) Lean in Design Forum in Phoenix, Arizona, on May 5 at 11:15 a.m. MST.
The panel titled “Lean Futures and the Role of Artificial Intelligence” will discuss how AI concepts enhance lean methods and how this relates to the lean practitioners in the design community. Broad areas of discussion will include how current and future tools will leverage AI to bring value all along the value stream. They will explore how leveraging AI in the “as-built” modeling approach can further reduce mundane tasks and free up time for more valuable dialogue with clients. The panel will also cover how AI can approach lean knowledge by streamlining the processing of data and information collection on lean activities.
A frequent guest speaker on machine learning, Eldridge has also presented at Engineering News-Record (ENR) and Autodesk University webinars. He focuses on AI to empower engineers and architects to spend less time documenting designs and more time exploring the solution space.
Eldridge will be joined by several other panelists including Zigmund Rubel, chief executive officer and founder of Forsight Digital; Patrick Chopson, co-founder of cove.tool; and Samir Emdanat, architect at Ghafari Associates.
