Construction and Engineering companies rely on Boyum software solutions for increased productivity, visibility into the supply chain and subcontractors & project management. Here are some of the most common challenges we see in the Construction and Engineering Industry:
No alignment of logistics processes
Knowing, storing, picking, packing, and delivering what you have in inventory in the fastest possible way is challenging. It requires a strict alignment of inbound, internal, and outbound logistic processes.
Productivity losses due to limited optimization of resources
Bill of material complexity and multi-constraint production resources such as machines, tools, and labor skills, can be challenging when needing to provide accurate delivery.
Warehouse space filled with obsolete inventory
Excess inventory carries a cost as it ties up cash reserves and occupies expensive warehouse space. Inventory and BOM accuracy is critical to support the planning process.
Limited visibility and management of external subcontractors
Supply chains are increasingly complex and global in nature, impacting customer delivery lead times and adding more stock into the supply chain. While many of the produced or sold items are bespoke, managing an extensive catalog, coordinating, and planning subcontractors consumes much workforce. On the other hand, the visibility of external production processes remains limited.
Complying with industry quality standards is a critical business process
Issues with non-compliance of products and inadequate specifications of construction projects can have catastrophic effects. Integrated quality and inventory management that allows for full traceability will help construction materials companies to prevent this from happening.
Decreasing project profits
Construction Project Managers play a significant role in your projects' success than any other single staffer.
