Non-conformances, in the construction or materials, and small defects (known as "snags") were managed using Sysnet's Snagmaster™ Defect Management System and Quality Dashboard.

The system, which incorporates innovative use of digital pen and paper in conjunction with iPads and a web-based Quality Dashboard, was used extensively to manage the close-out of snags and non-conformance issues throughout the project to ensure a zero-defect handover to the games organisers.

Said Sysnet MD and product manager for Snagmaster™, Peter Burtwistle :

"It is the speed of data entry that still makes a digital pen the technology of choice in certain situations. We were able to design a digital paper input form that met the needs of the snaggers exactly and make data entry super-fast and extremely simple."

Snagmaster™ easily handled the considerable administrative grind associated with such a large project, and the Quality Dashboard portal provided a clear overview for project managers, sub-contactors and stake-holders alike."

Sysnet will now turn it's attentions to helping the builders of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
