Import your estimate data and quickly build a master schedule in Gantt chart form.
We will organize your estimate by phase of construction and tasks.
From there, your project manager only needs to organize the tasks in the order they envisions building the project and the master schedule will be built automatically. By selecting the crew size for each task the program will adjust the task duration using actual estimate data. Fine tune start dates for tasks and you’re done. The master schedule acts as a to do list for your site supervisor. Two-week rolling schedules can be written for each member of the crew in a matter of minutes.
Deadly accurate individual employee schedules telling them what tasks to work on, when to work on them and how long they have to complete them.
A time reporting system that documents individual employee progress against the actual estimate budget broken down and recorded by your cost codes.
If you want to produce consistent profits on competitively bid projects, you have to break the estimate down into manageable tasks that can be assigned to individual workers with specific time limits as dictated by the estimate. Once these tasks are assigned to each worker you need a way to track their progress against these tasks so that you can keep a close eye on the daily health of the estimate budget. In essence, what we are saying is, if you want individual workers to build a project at a pace that matches your estimate rate, those individual workers need to know what that rate of installation is and then be held accountable to it.
Our manpower loading chart will forecast an accurate snapshot of daily manpower requirements for every day of the project.
