As we've expanded our prefabrication operations, keeping track of all the moving pieces has become increasingly vital. Manufacton helps tie our process together from inception to completion, streamlining projects and aiding us in creating effective and consistent lines of communication.
We had been struggling to provide visibility into our production ‘black box’ to our project coordinators and field superintendents. In addition to helping our shop foremen organize production, the mobile app from Manufacton is used by our field and office teams to know exactly what has been produced and where it is right now.
When you have multiple workflows where some overlap and others run parallel, communication is a key factor in effective process management. Whether it’s communication between workflows, or communication between project stakeholders; Manufacton helps streamline those communication channels by making critical information easily accessible.
We have been searching for a platform that will provide us real time access to fabrication and delivery dates, while increasing our site supervisor’s flexibility and improving our chances for schedule success. ManufactOn has done this, while furthering collaboration and communication between our team, subcontractors and vendors.
Managing the supply chain is becoming ever more critical for projects in cities like Boston, where there are congested roads and other buildings surrounding the jobsite. With limited space for laydown areas, limited parking for construction workers and time constraints for a limited number of truck deliveries, we need to drive more and more production offsite with good quality control and manage just-in-time deliveries of prefab components to the jobsite. We have started using ManufactOn to manage our construction supply chain.
