This webinar will help you to identify your accurate field productivity through: Job Productivity And Control (JPAC®) 

 

What will you gain?

Job productivity has historically been measured from the accounting perspective; however, this method of measurement has alienated labor and as a result the outcome is data that is not useful. This program will teach the principle of measuring productivity from the operator’s point of view, using JPAC® to establish the baseline of job productivity and control and assure the adherence to project goals. The participant will learn how to establish a useful productivity measuring method to help them to improve productivity by making it more visible. Project Tracking using ASTM Standard E-2691.

 

Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss control elements that make up project goals Improve cash flow and profit prediction

Agile Construction® Class – Level 101 – Live Online Webinar – August 13th & 14th

AGILE CONSTRUCTION® TRAINING 101

August 13th & 14th – online 

Agile Construction® is profitable construction. A construction job site is a very fluid work environment, in a state of constant change, both planned and unplanned. The jobsite’s needs and requirements alter Schedules frequently. In spite of schedule changes, the plan needs to proceed. Resources and experience levels change with every personnel reassignment. People learn from ongoing experience. Agile Construction® allows the contractor to rapidly adapt to job site changes in order to complete each project both profitably and efficiently. The agility (responsiveness) of the contractor at the job site will improve the profits.  Agility, not leanness, is what construction jobsite management needs.

 

What will you gain?
The participants will learn how to establish a useful productivity measuring method.  They will experience simple methods and tools for scheduling and tracking that can improve visibility and knowledge of their jobs.  They will learn how to identify the obstacles and labor waste which can impact job productivity, and discuss techniques that can improve it by better than 30%.
