Finding skilled trades is difficult, and replacing experienced trades is even more difficult. You can afford to waste their time chasing after parts, materials, permits, and cleaning up equipment before working on it.
Getting the maximum “wrench time” from your workforce is increasingly critical. Planned work, knowing you have all the needed parts, tools, etc. and thoughtful scheduling requires a consistent work management process, knowledge of planning and scheduling, and skill.
Get it right and a single planner can nearly double the wrench time of 17 or more skilled trades persons. An investment in training your planners, schedulers, and supervisors in this key process is an investment in productivity.
