Measure Productivity of your Scaffolding Operations
Scaffolding operations entail many complex but mandatory safety processes that have contributed to losses in kind and cash if not followed accurately. One of the major challenge faced by authorities is that of identifying whether resources (both man & material) are being used efficiently.
Owing to its complex nature of operations, authorities face a huge challenge of monitoring and measuring activities at multiple scaffolding sites in a single project. It becomes difficult to have a physical presence at each working site within a given area / location just to monitor activity. Owing to this, it is difficult to identify whether the teams that have been allocated to a particular project are working as expected. Similarly, it becomes extremely difficult to monitor material used in a single scaffolding site.
The emergence of the computer and its multiple capabilities, has successfully addressed many of these challenges. It is getting clearer that using technology, many of these complex procedures can be simplified. One benefit of such technologies has been a radical reduction in the depreciation of material consumption in a scaffolding operation.
Using software, one can easily calibrate the amount of material to be used based on the scaffolding request and scaffold dimension vs material matrix After depreciation, the balance material can be accounted for taking reference within the software and an accurate assessment can be made with regard to the exact tonnage used in the particular job.
Similarly, software also allows authorities to measure productivity of teams working on a particular job. Given the demands of getting optimum work done in any particular job, software users are able to accurately measure the performances of each of the individuals who is a part of the scaffolding team. This allows authorities to cross-reference productivity vis-a-vis specific jobs. After all, as a popular saying goes, “What gets measured gets managed and what gets managed gets results”!
