Don’t fix problems, avoid them.
Predict Future Problems
When starting work on a two or three year long project, it’s hard to predict where you are going to be in six months or a year later after the first week or two of construction. The Velocity Grid shows you not only how many stages or units you have already completed, but how many stages or units you need to complete every month to meet the project schedule.
See monthly targets for how many stages you need to complete to meet your schedule
Identify problematic areas before they cause schedule delays
See how many stages each contractor completes weekly, ensuring smooth workflow
Establish a baseline to determine construction rate, and measure progression accordingly
Foresee construction delays
The Velocity Grid establishes a baseline for your construction targets. Miss that target, and you’ll be notified. Miss that target two weeks in a row or more, and you know that you have a problem with that particular stage. Now it’s your call – change contractors, hire more, or change the schedule.
Warnings and Notifications
Set up alerts and notifications the way you want to. Get an email when you miss your target 3 times in a row, set up a warning notification when the plumbing rough stage falls behind, or have an email sent to the contractor when the masonry stage is exceeding its planned velocity.
Baseline & Estimated
Your schedule changes – and the estimated work rate changes with it. Set up your initial baseline, and see how different schedule changes increase or decrease the estimated required output to get the construction completed in time.
Measure twice, cut once
Being able to see how many stages you need to complete not just next week, but in one year time, means that you are far better prepare to meet the challenges that always come up in every construction project. Changes that you make in the schedule are immediately reflected in the Velocity Grid, giving you an excellent planning tool.
