Look to Lean Technology
Today, many construction companies are considering the benefits that lean processes and procedures can lend to a construction organization.
Companies like Newforma, www.newforma.com, Manchester, Mass., are transforming building and infrastructure project delivery with technologies like Newforma LeanPlanner, which will provide visual production planning software for design and construction companies using lean methods of project delivery.
Ian Howell, CEO, Newforma, even told Constructech exclusively at the end of last year that best practices such as lean design, lean construction, and project-information management are showing the way.
Powered by LeanKit, Newforma LeanPlanner will provide designers and construction companies with technology that improves production schedule reliability for more predictable project outcomes. With the use of LeanPlanner, project team members can identify near-term constraints and track progress of work from “to do” to “doing” to “done,” anytime, anywhere.
The product is unique in that it was designed specifically for the superintendent and foreman, meaning the user interface is visual and more intuitive.
This product stands out, as a product advances analytics and reporting capabilities for the construction industry, which is why it recently won the 2016 Constructech Top Products award, which highlights achievements and advancements in technology that have had a significant impact on the commercial market.
This product will help construction professionals accelerate the lean journey and promote improvement through deep understanding and insights including planned percent complete and at-risk milestones. The product comes at the right time too, as many in the industry are looking to lean today.
