What It's About:

Can you tell your buyers their closing and move-in dates when they sign their contract? Can you accurately predict your monthly cash flow from construction draws and new home closings? Have you experienced delays because a superintendent “forgot” to call for the inspection or the materials delivery? These and many more headaches can be eliminated with a solid project slot schedule and centralized scheduling control. Whether you’re building on scattered sites, in communities, high-volume production or high-dollar custom, this session will teach you the nuts and bolts of centralized scheduling, including getting your trade contractors on-board, determining staff requirements, how to train your production team and more. We’ll also explore what you should look for in scheduling software.

What You'll Learn:

  • Learn what centralized scheduling is, why it is so important to a healthy operation and what prerequisites are needed to move from individual to centralized scheduling.
  • Identify the components of a good centralized scheduling project template, how much detail should be included and how the superintendents' and administrators' roles work.
  • Evaluate key differences between the various scheduling software systems available and which are best-suited for centralized scheduling.
  • Understand the importance of sub/supplier relationships and why they are equally as important as the software used.

How to Attend:

Participants must be registered for a full registration package or a 1-day education with expo pass package valid for the day of the session they wish to attend. Seating for Building Knowledge sessions will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
