The Benefits of Visually Communicating Your Project Schedule

 
September 22nd, 2015 by Howard Davis, CEO

A huge advantage that comes with the BIM data integration in a construction project is the ability to visualize the expected progress throughout the entire process. When teams are empowered to create a comprehensive project schedule in a way that shows stakeholders exactly what the project will look like over time, all parties achieve a greater understanding of the process which opens lines of communication and puts minds at ease.

In review of this month’s webinar, “Managing & Modeling: Visually Communicating Your Project Schedule,” below are some basic (but vital) ways that projects benefit from using comprehensive visual project schedules.

Use robust data for ongoing project visualization.
Before you even break ground, a virtual model built in 4D is paramount to successful planning. This model enhances communication by illustrating progress over time in a way that anyone can understand. Often times, we are given the tools to make better decisions based on a killer model and we simply do not use them to their full potential.

Understand and communicate progress in real-time.
A virtual model helps you understand the ins and outs of a project. Having the ability to review a schedule visually and resolve issues across the model data provides leverage in negotiations and recommendations. When owners and subcontractors have the means to fully understand a project quickly, you save valuable time.

Adjust and adapt for a better outcome.
As the project unfolds, the visual schedule enables you to identify trends and apply them to future progress. Given future projections of upcoming material quantities, one can create a useful visual look-ahead to gauge possible outcomes. Then, as your model data is updated with project growth over time, the resulting production values are useful for analyzing the past and the future.

More specifically, cumulative production values analyzed against the project schedule provide insight into overall progress and any work that is behind schedule. In addition, an accurate percent complete model in real-time enables better cash flow management and better outcomes.
