Project after project the deadline passes, and the Punch List becomes unmanageable.
As each day passes the likelihood of successfully reaching the project deadline is becoming harder to achieve. In the beginning everything ran remarkably well. However, as business began to pick up and the schedule filled, your efforts were redirected and the Punch List continued to increase.
There are many varying parts to a project, nevertheless, visibility too late in your project can be a large factor in having a long Punch List.
Reports are continuously late or the details overlooked, and before you had a chance to see the previous drawing revision a new revision gets bumped up. Yet, you don’t notice what you haven’t observed.
How can the Punch List be created and handled? How can you produce schedules? To better understand the issues do you need to manually create a dashboard? How can this all be connected?
Construction Site Digitisation
A large majority of construction sites count on paper and spreadsheets. Plans and checklists can pile up, as they get printed, modified and filled out. Reviewing spreadsheet information and manually entering data becomes a routine for project managers, who are constantly walking up and down the site office. The software is there to be mobile, just as the hardware technology is.
Digitising what you’re currently doing manually will help you get your Punch List under control. This can be done by centralising your data and having schedules and checklists digitised. This will allow you to access information in real time, and more importantly, by having real time visibility you’re able to make better judgments now, rather than waiting for information to be entered and evaluated.
Autodesk’s BIM 360 accomplishes exactly that. 3D BIM models, drawings, schedules, checklists and other documents are connected all in one place. Vital analytics will be given to you in real time, as its system carries you through all stages: From Design, Coordination, Field that flows on into Handover and Operations
All decisions can be made productively by importance, since you can see all material required when you click the dashboard button. You can see what accounts have been finalised, and what workers are carrying out. Power is gained through information, and there is no power in a pile of documents, nor is there power in receiving information when it too late.
