What It's About:
As the labor shortage continues, builders across the country are experiencing “schedule creep” with construction cycle times increasing by as much as 60-90 days in some markets. Homes sit idle for days as subcontractors struggle to keep up with demand, eating away at your profits and increasing the cost to finance projects. Worse, homes are delivered late to often frustrated customers and have long repair lists caused by pressure to complete projects quickly. The good news—you can control many of the factors contributing to expanding cycle times and recover lost profits. In this advanced session, examine the root causes of schedule creep, and learn strategies for improving trade partner performance and reducing cycle times by eliminating the "empty house days" that are making construction schedules unreliable and unrealistic.
What You'll Learn:
Discover the key factors that contribute to longer construction cycle times, and gain a better understanding of the true costs to your company and your profits.
Identify the root causes of construction delays, from scheduling deficiencies and subcontractor conduct to the impact of policies and customer behaviors.
Gain an understanding of what drives trade partner performance and how you can get their best crews first.
Obtain strategies to even out the flow of production, improve schedule reliability, reduce cycle times and enhance customer satisfaction.
