Finding it Hard to Schedule Time to Update Schedules? Sounds a Bit Like a Catch 22!

This is my second in a series on a report that came out from Dodge and Autodesk on Key Performance Indicators for Construction.

What I find interesting per the report, is how many companies do not seem to know the daily status of their projects and if they are on schedule. Time is certainly a commodity that we could all use more of, but it is somewhat of a Catch 22 that we need more time to track time.

Based on the report, 42% of respondents reported that they update schedules daily or weekly. That is good, but on the other side, only 20% said that they update the schedule within 1-2 days of becoming aware of a situation requiring schedule modification.

I would certainly like to know if many of you are seeing the same issues. And… of course, I can’t help but highlight that without a tool like ICT Tracker it is hard to update your schedule when you do not know your percent complete. No more…ICT Tracker can tell you the status of your project, areas of concern, while tracking productivity.

Just Released! New Features Added to ICT Tracker

As you know, we are continuing to add more features and functionality to the ICT Tracker app. I am excited to announce the following updates that our development team has been busy perfecting:

1. Cost Codes: You now can input Cost Codes per system and export that data to tie productivity reports to cost codes or link to existing project management software

2. Log Crew Size & Hours: You can now log Daily Crew Hours and Size to track total hours logged onscreen. This allows you to export data for labor productivity tracking based on hours, crew size, material type and size or link to project management software

3. Budget Hours: Get real-time on-screen Budget Hours by entering Budget Hours to view real-time budget percent complete status vs installation percent complete status.
