According to COAA, only 37% of craft time is spent on tools – with a majority of the non-tool time attributed to waiting on materials and equipment due to poor planning and execution. An estimated 25% productivity gain can be achieved through the use of workface planning (WFP). WFP requires an integrated materials management tool to provide real-time visibility into the supply chain in order to enable construction to accurately plan their work, as well as enable procurement to efficiently support that plan.
At this event, project stakeholders will share how they are using modern materials management to facilitate better planning and execution. Through the use of technologies such as mobile devices, barcodes and RFID, modern materials management supports collecting accurate, real-time data to automate material allocation and identify upstream material readiness issues. Presenting this information in an easy to consume, graphical dashboard enables procurement to manage by exception and proactively resolve issues before they impact construction.
