The gap has been that the industry hasn’t been able to access historical information in one database that an end user can access and manipulate specific to their situation and provide information that will help forecast potential productivity issues related to their projects.
As a leading indicator, Time on Tools studies allow construction management teams to address actual current issues and to see the results of their actions in a much shorter time horizon.
Insight-AWP is now making our historical database available to anyone via our user interface containing projects from Western Canada, the US Gulf Coast, and Western Europe, approaching 200,000 observations. You can now access and sort the largest sample size of project observations available in one location that will allow you to better predict, identify, and prepare for potential productivity issues.
By comparing the resulting percentages against targets (considered realistic stretch targets based on historical data) opportunities for improvement are identified. Streamlining support activities and decreasing delays will increase the percentage of direct activity achieved.
By using our tool, you can now produce observations that are recorded by sampling routine execution for a typical duration of two weeks. The observer cycles through all project areas in a non-invasive manner so that many typical “snap shots” of project life can be recorded.
