A Tool for the Superintendent
The Construction Superintendent is all things for the jobsite. Leader, Mediator, Mentor, Safety Chief, Excel Wizard, Cell Phone Burner, and Quality Inspector. Their jobs are the most diverse in the construction world and they literally have no tool dedicated to their success.
- RBlackHyve’s Flow Board is the tool dedicated to the success of the Jobsite Superintendent.
3 Steps to put the Construction Industry back in the Production Driver’s Seat
Create a Plan
“Plans are worthless; But Planning is Everything” – Dwight D Eisenhower – WWII Supreme Allied Commander Europe
- The initial plan isn’t important, it will fail 100% of the time. The act of planning is the key. Spend less time making a plan that will fail. BlackHyve’s AI scheduling engine lets you explore different options, examine the scenarios, find the holes in your schedule, and plan for the plan to fail.
- Produce a full Master schedule 90% faster then traditional tools like P-6, ASTA, MS Project.
Focus on Flow with Flow Board
A new Production Agility Tool for Superintendent tool boxes – We know the Master schedule will fail, so use “Flow Board” to agilely govern, control, and forecast production like never before. The Flow Board is fed tasks directly from the Master schedule, keeping them both in sync at all times.
- Real-time Production KPIs
- Easily update production and manage Work in Progress (WIP)
- Identify Bottlenecks weeks and months before they affect jobsite Production
- Plan’s change, Flow Board is built for change.
One place, not all over the place
If you can’t communicate your agile schedule to the production teams in the field then you have failed. The PCB will easily keep the entire project team up to date with BlackHyve’s automated look ahead schedules and weekly recap reports.
