Planning keeps a project on course. To maximize profits, you need integrated construction scheduling software that helps you stay on track and anticipate problems. Our Scheduling Module is designed to help manage resources, avoid scheduling conflicts and limit delays, empowering you to keep your projects always headed down the right path.
Information is only helpful if it’s presented in the right way. FOUNDATION’s Scheduling Module uses a Gantt chart display that converts your project schedules into easy-to-read bar charts. This lets you see timelines, non-working days, completion percentages and critical paths—all at a glance.
FOUNDATION’s Scheduling Module uses a simple drag-and-drop interface, so moving or modifying tasks and creating new schedules couldn’t be easier!
Managing resources is one of the biggest challenges of construction scheduling, and our Scheduling Module makes things simpler by detecting scheduling conflicts the moment they happen. Attach employees, crews or equipment to project tasks, and receive an automated warning if a scheduling conflict occurs.
A major component of construction scheduling is making sure everyone is kept in the loop, so FOUNDATION features detailed timeline and resource reporting, making it easy to share the latest information with the decision makers in your organization.
In construction scheduling, a delay in one part of the job can create a domino effect elsewhere. You need software that can make the connections and adjust schedules accordingly, which is why when you make a change to one part of a schedule in FOUNDATION, the entire schedule will update, letting you see the impact of a change immediately.
Employees and equipment are only half of the battle in construction scheduling; you also need to know which materials and subcontractors need to be on site and when. FOUNDATION lets you attach materials and subcontractors to project tasks and specify when they need to be there. Your project team will have a complete overview of what’s needed to get the job done.
If your office uses multiple software packages, setting up a new job can involve a lot of redundant data entry. With FOUNDATION’s construction scheduling, you can create a new job schedule by tying it to the job’s budget. That way each cost code is automatically created as a task on the job’s schedule. Even better, your schedule’s completion percentages are updated as job costs are posted, so you spend less time on data entry as the job progresses.
If you’re using our Unit Price Billing Module to run jobs for state DOTs, a job schedule can be created in a matter of seconds. Just select the job, and a task will be added to the schedule for each billing item. To make things even easier, your schedule updates as you update the job’s completed units, so you’ll always be able to see up-to-date completion percentages.
