For Construction Management, one of the greatest needs is the range of information that must be readily available through the various phases of any single construction project.
Add to that the requirements of multiple stakeholders and multiple projects and the amount of data to be managed quickly becomes overwhelming using paper-based or even spreadsheet-based program management tools.
Does your present Program Management System enable quick answers across the enterprise to the following questions?
- What are the current list of construction projects being managed and the key contacts for each project?
- What contracts have been awarded for each project, complete with the line item specifics for each bid item in the contract?
- Which activities have been performed (or are scheduled to be performed) on each contract?
- What changes have been suggested and/or approved for a given contract along with the impact of those changes on the budget and schedule?
- What RFIs have been created and what has been the vendor response to those RFIs?
- What standard reports are available to various stakeholders along with the time and money spent internally to generate those reports?
Is managing tasks like these carrying a high cost or taking away from time spent in the field?
Feature of Assure-IT: CONSTRUCTION WORKMANSHIP
The sheer number of moving parts that must come together on schedule at the correct field location in order to produce a structure can be overwhelming. On top of these logistical issues comes the declining experience level prevalent within the construction industry. It is generally recognized that the experience level of not only laborers but also project engineers, project managers and inspectors continues to decline. The continuing decline of experienced construction laborers and managerial staff makes access to workmanship procedures vitally important.
Workmanship management concerns have also become critical issues for owner's representatives and contractor's representatives who must make field-level decisions related to acceptance of materials and workmanship.
Does your present workmanship management system enable your entire team:
- To define and continuously update field construction procedures while also making them immediately available at the construction site for review and use by field superintendents and laborers prior to starting work on a job?
- Provide step-by-step check lists for inspectors and construction foremen to use prior to approving the job site as acceptable to proceed with the next step of the job?
- Enable paperless completion of field inspection reports that can also be immediately synced back to a central data repository for review by managers and engineers?
- Rapidly search for and produce for field use a “missing” field procedure critical to maintaining an orderly progress of work at the job site?
If formulating accurate and timely answers to questions like these is taking away from time spent in the field (or even worse time with your family at home) then perhaps it is time for you to investigate the power of
