ChatGPT What Can Be Possible on the Construction Site: An Example
The Initial Situation
A medium-sized construction company aims to optimize construction site processes to work more efficiently and save costs. The primary goal is to automate and interlink planning, control, and documentation of processes.
Construction site processes are complex and involve numerous departments and staff members. Additionally, the procurement of prefabricated parts must be coordinated. Manual planning and control can lead to mistakes, time delays, and communication issues, ultimately affecting the construction site.
Planning and Preparation
The Specter software is used for weekly planning. Tasks for the respective trades are scheduled, deliveries planned, and necessary processes and queries initiated. The plan is discussed in various presentations, such as a weekly preview, and is also accessible online.
Capturing the Current State
The current status of the construction site is updated with feedback from the trades and processes and stored in the model. The system provides an easy overview of the status quo at any time, shared with various stakeholders.
Analysis & Comparison of Data
Specter compares the actual data with the target specifications from work preparation and schedule planning. Deviations and delays are immediately identified and documented.
Communication & Reporting
All relevant stakeholders, such as production managers, teams, and executive management, have configurable access to the current progress status at any time. Automated reports can be generated and sent at defined intervals.
If discrepancies or problems are identified, the system allows for quick reaction. Short-term measures like buffer days can be considered early on.
By implementing Specter, the company can make its construction site processes more efficient and transparent. It reduces manual effort, minimizes errors, and enables early detection and resolution of problems. This optimization leads not only to cost savings but also to improved quality and customer satisfaction, as completion dates can be met more reliably.
