Top-Down Planning Overview
Whether you’re an owner or a contractor, it’s critical to have an effective and efficient plan to set your construction project up for success. However, historically creating new project plans has typically begun with a blank slate. This older approach has been prone to error and very labor intensive as it drives an overly optimistic version of the plan that ultimately unachievable and doesn’t reflect the realities of project execution.
We believe this is an antiquated approach to project planning. One of the reasons is the knowledge used to build that plan is not available in one place. It’s held by domain experts or visible only in previously executed projects. Organizations are challenged by a distributed workforce, brain drain, and key disciplines, an inefficient planning process that make it nearly impossible to build and maintain schedules that reflect that available knowledge.
A project without that knowledge is incomplete and is far more likely to fail. So how do we solve those problems and make your project plans more accurate and more efficient? Well, with InEight’s top down planning solution, you can use artificial intelligence to assist and guide you through the project planning process. This construction planning software can capture insights and learning from prior projects and use the stored knowledge to can form suggestions during the planning process.
It also allows project team members to give their expert opinion through a very simple to use scorecard. If you’d like to learn more about and other InEight solutions, contact us. We’ll be happy to schedule a free demo.
