Solution

Planning of Tasks

The Planning Board is the last and most precise schedule.

Placing Tasks at the intersection of time and location avoids clashes of work space.

All trades are collaborating. The Planning Board improves communication by visualizing “What, Where and When”.

Lean Construction Last Planner® System
Lean Construction Last Planner® System

Simply pick a Recipe. A new task is created at the selected location and time.

Spread Tasks with Drag & Drop or Copy & Paste easily.

Last Planner® is a registered trademark of the Lean Construction Institute.

Shift Based Duration and Cost
Shift Based Duration and Cost

Working hours are calculated from quantity and productivity. Calendar duration is calculated from shift definitions and weekends/holidays.

Create precise schedules with no effort.

Takt Planning
Takt Planning

Create a Train from Wagons (Tasks). Then generate Trains at other locations.

Divide into smaller areas to reduce the Takt and overall duration.

Planning of Tasks

Execution of Tasks

Simplicity is crucial for users in the field. So we made it like Tinder.

Foremen commit to their Tasks with a swipe. Then they start, stop or complete them with a swipe.

Each Task has its own stop watch. There is no cheating with productivity. Field data is trustworthy.

The Planning Board visualizes “How” Tasks are executed.

Execution of tasks
Measurements With a Swipe
Measurements With a Swipe

Swipe for changing the stage of a Task or for a measurement. The app then calculates current productivity and forecasts the estimated end time.

Enter Lean Cards for Problems, Ideas, Quality and Environment, Health & Safety issues and discuss them with your teams for continuous improvements.

Measurements With a Swipe
Remote Supervision With Real Time Data

The data collected in the field is visualized on the Planning Board in real time.

Detect late starts or stopped Tasks, check forecasted ends and potential collisions with other Tasks or missing approvals.

Act immediately and proactively deal with expected problems.

Workforce Management

Site Cockpit knows which skills are required for each Task and suggests suitable crews that are available.

Our clash detection analyzes the ever changing plan for over allocation of workers.

The Planning Board visualizes “Who”, “What”, “Where” and “When”.

Assign the Right Crew
Assign the Right Crew

Pick the workforce for a Task from the suggested list of crews and workers.

Adjust the productivity by changing the manpower.

Foremen Must Commit
Foremen Must Commit

Assign foremen to their Tasks. They must commit before the Task can be started.

This improves motivation to deliver as promised.

Work Schedules
Work Schedules

Filtering crews, workers or foremen displays their work schedules.

Everyone knows what to do when and where.

Workforce Management

Analyze Construction Data

On their way through the stages Tasks collect and generate data.

Run analytical apps to gain additional insight into your projects.

Key Figures

Key Figures
Key Figures

Get a quick overview of the performance of a project. Check the amount of problems, quality and EH&S issues by type and severity.

Productivity
Productivity

From all Tasks in all projects the productivities are stored at the recipe.

Project, contractor, quantity, duration, headcount and productivity per worker help you comparing. Reuse this set of reliable productivity information for future planning.

Timesheets

Timesheets, Labor Cost
Timesheets, Labor Cost

Daily worker time sheets are generated with hours spent for each Task.

Based on rates per time type the exact labor cost is calculated. The percentage of productive time is displayed as a key figure.

Recipes
Recipes

Tasks are based on Lean Recipes. Recipes have a description, UoM, productivity and know their resource requirements.

Recipes reduce input and standardize work.

Shifts
Shifts

Define your Shifts with breaks and time types like overtime. The app calculates calendar duration of Tasks based on shifts.

Create precise schedules.

Stages
Stages

Tasks pass through gated stages like Committed, Started, Stopped, Completed or Approved.

Stages control access and simplify Task management.

Push/Pull
Push/Pull

Create sequences of Tasks either forward (push) or backwards (pull) in time.

Pull Planning improves productivity.

Trains
Trains

For repeated work just define a Train by selecting Tasks. Then generate Trains at other locations.

With Takt Planning you can reduce durations by reducing the Takt.
