Engineering Project Checklists
Run your engineering project with ease using inspection templates on your smartphone or tablet using the iAuditor app
Why checklists are critical to engineering projects
The job of an engineer is a complex one. You need to gather requirements, write design documents, order, ship, build, plan, configure and troubleshoot. Engineering projects rarely go to plan, so the need to establish contingency strategies is crucial. Trouble arises when engineers execute their day-to-day tasks, sometimes omitting crucial steps.
10 reasons to use iAuditor for your engineering project
- Set clear project specifications and milestones
Whatever field of engineering you’re in, the reputation of your company rests largely on your ability to deliver on time and to the set specifications. An engineering project manager’s biggest challenge is dealing with inevitable changes and delays. With project checklists, you can set clear project specifications from the beginning and have complete visibility over your operation. Using iAuditor, a checklist inspection app, you can manage all your on-site demands from a mobile phone or tablet and double your productivity.
- Complete inspections in half the time
Say goodbye to spreadsheets and paper checklists.
- Instant reports on the spot
You can provide accurate, highly detailed reports on the spot to contractors, supervisors, and consultants. Using iAuditor, you can get clients to sign-off on work on the spot at various stages of the project. iAuditor delivers detailed reports that you can share to ensure stakeholders are engaged throughout the project delivery and keep the scope on track. Using iAuditor you can effectively measure success by tracking progress from the data collected in the field.
- Put an end to paperwork
You can’t keep track of your project progress by using paper checklists. By conducting daily and weekly inspections using iAuditor, you can work out the risk factors at various stages and determine how you can reduce their impact. Your iAuditor inspection data can be backed up to the cloud. There is no need for piles of paperwork and confusing spreadsheets. A cloud-based checklists app ensures you’ve checked off every detail and are able to manage them accordingly.
- Provide detailed images in reports
It’s too easy these days to have things misconstrued. By using high quality images throughout your inspection you can increase the level of detail and accuracy in your reports. iAuditor allows project teams to capture high resolution images throughout your site. You can easily embed the photos into inspections. Images also allow you to record issues. Simply take a photo and mark it up using the iAuditor annotation feature. Add arrows and circles to quickly deliver your message.
- Detail is everything to an engineer
iAuditor sets the standard for your engineering project and ensures every worker is on the same page. You can create project specific checklists and collect data across the entire project to easily identify safety and quality issues in real-time.
- Cloud-based inspection analytics
When you’re delivering a project to a specific scope of work, data is crucial. Using the SafetyCulture analytics feature, you can access your project inspection data wherever you need it because it’s based in the cloud. Your iAuditor data is also backed up and secure in your account.
- Offline capability
A checklist inspection app needs to work anywhere, including underground and in remote locations. Working in remote sites shouldn’t stop you because you don’t have connectivity. iAuditor allows workers to conduct their audits in any location. Simply sync the checklist back to your SafetyCulture account when you come back into cellular coverage. iAuditor is available for iPhone, iPad, Windows, and Android devices.
- Collaborate with your project team
iAuditor allows you to work in project teams, so that the project manager, contractor, subcontractor, consultant and suppliers can inspect and collect data in the field. The entire team can conduct inspections in real-time and ensure there is consistency in the data collected by using the same application. Simply set up a SafetyCulture account, start an organisation and invite your project team.
- Digital inspections can’t be lost
Inspections are backed up to the cloud as soon as they’re done.

“Previously, supervisors would visit the field, check out the job site, then get stuck behind the computer at the end of the day trying to put together their audits and report them into a confusing database. We’ve provided more than 90 supervisors with the iAuditor system, which has decreased time spent at their desks, while increasing the number of audits we’re able to complete.”
