Japan’s first of its kind AI Audit Application will be available from July 1, 2024.

Fujitsu Japan has developed an AI-powered design audit system for water supply facility construction designs with Kobe City Waterworks Bureau (KCWB). It streamlines and automates the audit process by detecting water supply facility symbols, and other relevant information on construction designs automatically. 

KCWB has been actively implementing initiatives to improve convenience for construction contractors, including the introduction of electronic applications and remote auditing for simple water supply facility construction projects for households. However, the large volume of applications, approximately 6,000 annually, has placed a significant strain on human resources dedicated to manual design audit.

The AI Audit Application utilizes AI-powered image analysis technology to automatically detect approximately 30 types of water supply facility symbols, including information such as pipe diameter, type, and installation year, from construction designs.The detected information is then displayed on the design along with a list.Staff members perform a final audit based on the water supply facility construction implementation standards set by Kobe City. This system is expected to significantly reduce the workload for staff, shorten the time spent for auditing, and improve the accuracy of construction designs through consistent correction instructions to construction contractors.

Fujitsu Japan will continue to contribute to solving various social issues through the utilization of AI and digital technologies.
