Smart worksite scheduling saves supervisors’ time

Published: 2.7.2018

Automatic schedule monitoring makes information transparent to all parties of a project. Smart worksite scheduling reduces the number of overlapping tasks  and saves time.

Real-time site information enables preparation for obstacles, the reassessment of future costs and genuine data-based management. Smart scheduling enables data-based site management and puts an end to guessing.

Supervisor, are you annoyed by constant delays?

Smart scheduling reduces idle time between tasks on site considerably. Every work stage can begin seamlessly once the previous stage is completed. At the schedule level this means that a fitter confirms on their phone that an electrical job has been completed, and this information is passed on to other fitters immediately. A mobile application replaces supervisors’ site rounds, reports and work stage notifications. Smarter schedule planning is the supervisor’s most important tool for automating daily monitoring and steering tasks. The digital site assistant does all the hard routine work, while the supervisor can focus on value-producing tasks.

Time saving

Worksite information is often fragmented and supervisors do not always have up-to-date information to work with. Scheduling programs make real-time data flow all the way to site supervision in a matter of seconds. The scheduling program links the worksite and the people in one scheduling view. As a result of this technology, the supervisor no longer needs to walk through every worksite or make phone calls, but they can focus on predicting the needs of the site. Smart scheduling does the rest and worksite manages itself much more than previously. Time is saved when all partners are in the right place at the right time and there is less unnecessary moving of equipment.

Site progress visible in one place

Color coding helps subcontractors to monitor progress all the way to team level. Project goals are understood better and interaction improves. There is no need to go to great lengths to find reasons for delays as everything that is happening at the site is constantly documented in one place. All parties to the project benefit from the schedule as it improves profitability and quality. When the scheduling tool is taken in use at all worksites, the supervisor can monitor the progress of a number of projects with one tool.
