Streamlining the way you plan, schedule and execute work packages to deliver more predictable project outcomes, on time and on budget.
Integrated construction planning to make the most complex projects seem simple
Simplifying the Work Planning Process
Prioritize creation of crystal-clear work packages and efficiently release to the field for execution.
Organizing every detail and constraint in one place
Seamlessly bring together multiple sources of information, including tasks, resources, documents and outcomes, into a comprehensive package.
Clearly quantify the scope of work
Give your field teams the level of detail they need to accurately quantify percent complete of the project.
You determine what gets claimed, and how
Remove the guesswork of complex claiming spreadsheets with in-app detailed rules of credit.
InEight’s construction planning software provides you with a field-proven methodology for engineering and construction work planning, packaging and quantity claiming.
- Simplify field planning and collaboration by streamlining the work packaging process
- Equip crews with constraint free packages of work, fully loaded with the details they need to succeed
- Deliver true project status updates by allowing crews to progress work in steps that are relevant to them
Continued struggles with project delays
Proven predictability in the execution of projects through streamlined construction planning.
Siloed planning and execution processes amongst contractors
Collaborate with all project stakeholders and gain new levels of visibility into the planning and execution of the work.
Poor visibility into actual project status
Full control of the capture of work progress, offering more certainty in your percent complete.
Siloed planning processes
Integrate the planning of each scope of work by collaborating across subcontractors, disciplines and departments for more predictable results.
Lack of visibility to ancillary risks
Facilitate the planning and mitigation of safety, quality and environmental risks, ensuring a safe environment and a job well done.
Inefficient communication of work packages to the field
Seamlessly dissect the package details into daily segments for release to the crew at the time of execution.
Disconnected quantity progressing in side spreadsheets
Delineate component level quantity detail with weighted rules of credit to drive budget percent complete.
Outdated progress reports leading to reactive decisions
Proactively define progressing goals and drive top performance with real-time productivity feedback at the operation.
InEight Plan and InEight Progress made us totally rethink how we did daily work planning, quantity claiming and time collection. The technology streamlined the process, eliminated data entry and paperwork and kept our guys out in the field instead of behind a desk.
Construction work planning is the process utilized in capital project management to lay out how the work will be managed and executed. This begins as early as design and procurement and continues through the operation of contractors and subcontractors.
Construction rules of credit is a method of progressing construction tasks or materials through weighted steps. Each step is assigned a percent value for the units as a way to partially progress work at a more detailed level than the control budget may allow. An example would be partially claiming a single unit of pipe by completing each step of unload/sort, fit up, weld and quality check.
The project performance percent complete is a key variable used in calculating Earned Value. It specifies what percentage of the activities that are planned have been completed, therefore providing the driver for what cost, quantity or labor units have been earned to date.
A construction daily plan combines three key field data points, time, quantities, and daily logs, into a single streamlined process. The plan communicates activities to complete, the amount of time planned for each, and additional key talking points for the crew to know as they approach their day. By capturing each data point throughout the shift, the daily plan becomes an operational record of what happened that day for each crew on the project.
The added element of quantity tracking is what differentiates construction daily planning. While workface planning focuses on analyzing, forecasting and planning workforce supply and demand, construction daily planning takes this to the next level by integrating the project quantities that need to be completed into the analysis. This then becomes the driving force behind the forecasting of workforce moving forward.
