Weather risk probability with project schedules and production controls
CAMBRIDGE, MA — WeatherBuild®, Decision Support Solutions for the Construction Industry and Built Environment®, is proud to announce support for project schedule integration with Trimble Vico Office for Time, Schedule Planner and Production Controller, as a part of Trimble General Contractor Solutions. Integration with project schedules and production controls enables weather risk probability and advanced planning analytics, together with the Flowline methodology of planning and field-worthy methods of proactively managing the plan.
Lean production programs for look-ahead and weekly production planning
Further, schedule integration with Trimble Vico Office for Time, Schedule Planner and Production Controller enhances Lean production programs and processes: first, in project management with master schedules and phase schedules; and second, in production management with look-ahead plans, weekly production plans, and progress tracking. During production management and production control, look-ahead planning includes preparing work and establishing constraints, such as probability of weather events, schedule impacts and safety risks.
Trimble Vico’s time workflows are bring a revolutionary perspective to BIM; by combining the power of model-based estimating with the advanced Flowline methodology of planning, creating detailed and accurate schedules in Vico Office is easy and powerful.
The combination of the three modules within the Vico Office suite allows the planner to plan/review/implement their schedule within a seamless workflow. No import or export is required to move from one module to the next and no manual linking needs to be done in order to connect the different planning phases.
Schedules in the system are quantitatively driven by the design and can be easily optimized with one of the most advanced (line of balance) methods available; results can immediately be reviewed via the 4D player and simulations are output for the construction site team. When ready, Production Control is a field-worthy method of proactively managing the plan.
