Start, Finish & Close Your Homes On-Time, Every Time: How to Implement a Successful Centralized Scheduling System
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.
