Imagine if you had someone on your team that automatically calculated and sent the best production plan for Foremen to execute on each day.
Every day they could show the Project Manager the different production options using their current job data and calculate if that day will meet expected production. If it doesn’t, they could show ways to improve to get the job back on track and even simulate different what-if scenarios so the Project Manager can know their options.
How valuable would that person be to your team?
How much easier would it be to hit budget if you had dedicated help like that?
The fortunate thing is, you don’t need to go out and hire someone to calculate and simulate different scenarios for you. The Production Planner in HeavyJob is a production planning and tracking software feature that can do all the heavy lifting so you can quickly find your path to profitability.
How Production Planner Works
1. One button pulls in from your time card your existing crew, quantities, and hours into the planner.
2. Production Planner instantly calculates your planned and expected production, as well as the variance between them.
3. You can adjust your crew makeup, hours, and production rates to simulate what-if scenarios and decide how aggressive you want your team to be.
4. You can send Production Plans to Foremen for a single day or across longer date ranges so they can see the ideal plan to execute when they start their day.
It’s easy to imagine how much of an impact planning ahead with production tracking software like Production Planner could make for your company. At the Solutions Summit on Jan 27th and 28th, construction company leaders will be talking through the impact planning ahead can have on your business.
