Planning & Minimising the impact of variations to your building schedule is painless, using Construction Scheduling Software designed specifically for the industry.
Project Managers are under constant pressure to keep the construction schedule on track. Without the right scheduling software the consequences can be dire. The construction schedule is often tight, landing the right materials, labourers, equipment and contractors in sequence, on site, can be an extremely difficult, especial when variations occur.
Traditional project management scheduling software uses Gantt chart formats. As is common practice in the construction and building industry things change. Variations to the original project are made and although valuable at the commencement of a project the Gantt Chart is dumped soon thereafter or if it's continued to be used many hours are wasted trying to manually regenerate the chart, make the appropriate changes then notify all parties involved of those changes.
We understand the impact of delays, variations and changes when Construction Scheduling Software is not suited to your operations.
Synergy understand that managing the construction schedule is more important than simply the traditional Gantt Char. As complications occur, using a construction scheduling solution changes become automatic. Necessary changes to the construction schedule, including automated variations to purchase orders, sub contract orders, start dates, deadlines and and even due by dates can be amended and resubmitted on variations to the original orders and the suppliers notified automatically.
The consequences of not doing it right are not only your reputation and that of your organisation but the financial and time consuming aspects as well. Managing the project schedule is one of the most important communication process and possibly the area of highest risk over which you have influence.
Construction Scheduling Screen Shot
The more complex the project the more difficult it becomes.
Imagine, everything ordered for the laying of a slab, contractors booked for the preparation and boxing, concrete and contractors ordered for the pour. It looks great on the Gantt Chart, but after a rain downpour, the preparation cannot be done. The contractor calls in, saying that the project is going to be pushed back by at least two days. A project manager can, with the click of a button automatically advise all contractors and suppliers of the change to the building schedule. Amended purchase orders are sent out, internal labour rescheduled and the impact to the project is minimised with less work required by the project manager.
