Multi-Tasking – Staying On Top Of Resource Allocation Based On Project Availability
Streamlining the allocation of worker resources demands rapid-fire multi-tasking. It’s about scheduling time according to project availability while also managing meetings, equipment and workforce availability. Yet even this complex task can be simplified by use of the tools associated with mobile computing, cloud-based data storage and software for construction contractors. But we will talk about that in a minute. First, let us do a brief review of workforce allocation and project availability.
To efficient and effective Project Managers, multi-tasking means:
- Assessing the developer’s timeframe
- Determining project availability
- Managing workforce and assets
- Satisfying clients
- Comparing operational expenses to established budgeted planning
- Preparing, checking and distributing project documentation
- Knowing the status of ever project
- Avoiding conflicts related to poor planning and over allocation
- Simplifying the process of workforce re-allocation
- Eliminate resource hogging
- Making the best out of the available worker skill-sets
- Implementing an adaptable and streamlined scheduling of multiple teams across multiple projects
- AND Ensuring on time project completion.
Streamlining the allocation of workers according to project availability is complex, time consuming and mentally draining. Yet if performed efficiently, streamlining the workforce promotes:
- Multi-project team motivation
- A confident workforce
- A sense of progress and pride in finished projects
- A project-wide willingness to invest in quality, safety and project completion
- Satisfied clients
- AND much, much more.
Single-Source Solutions Make For Effective Streamlined Workforce Scheduling
Although reliable construction software can help construction contractors streamline workforce scheduling in all aspects of the operations, many firms fall into the trap a cluster-mess control center. Rather than zooming in on a single-source operations management solution, they get chained to a multitude of techniques and perspectives that merely further complicate the process.
Too many construction software platforms result in a scatter center of information management. Fragmentation follows in the wake. Allocation of workers may end up duplicated, timed incorrectly and falling out of line with project availability. When using multiple operations workforce and asset allocation and scheduling software, PMs may actually find their ability to multitask reduced rather than enhanced. Keeping on top of various schedules becomes more difficult rather than less difficult. The contractor collects all the right software for the better control of workforce allocation, but everything just gets more fragmented.
