Why Heavy Civil Construction Companies Need to Automate Their Dispatching
18 May 2022
Heavy civil construction companies are complex organisms with multiple divisions touching the same equipment and the same sites. Yet, these divisions often have limited visibility into each other’s interactions as it relates to their sites and equipment. This is simply because if we try to keep everyone in the loop the entire day would be spent on the phone, and no one would get any work done.
Think of a basic dispatch request; a field superintendent requests a machine to be moved from one site to another. In order to keep everyone on your team in the loop who need to be in the loop, it will require 13 phone calls and if the schedule changes it will be another 13 phones (See diagram). Another typical but more complex dispatch involves equipment breaking down and as a result a replacement machine needs to be moved in. Without another diagram, I am sure you get the picture; 13 phone calls for the equipment breaking down, another 6 to analyze what to do and another 13 to move the equipment. No wonder people are left in the dark! It costs money to leave your team in the dark but so does spending all day on the phone.
What if there was a software program that could do this all for you? What if that program automatically identified and automatically notified the right people for any dispatch or event relevant to them?
