[San Francisco, CA, May 4, 2020] Fieldwire recently improved its Gantt chart scheduling tool, adding manpower to work items in Fieldwire. This gives construction teams the ability to capture expected and actual task duration, enabling them to more easily sequence and schedule tradespeople’s work.
Problems arise when tradespeople are stretched over too many tasks or are dependent on the completion of tasks others are assigned to. Gantt charts with manpower allow for resources to be applied effectively as project managers can see how and where people are being used. This is especially helpful for specialty contractors who plan work based on available manpower.
In addition to giving project managers a view into team availability, Fieldwire’s Gantt view gives them the ability to change work start and end dates directly on the schedule. And linked reports show when work items are completed and verified, allowing project managers to see when tasks are completed early or late based on end dates.
“Fieldwire was crucial for each foreman to be able to see what the other was doing at any time. This helped them coordinate work on such a tight schedule and I’m not sure we could have finished the project — on time and budget — without Fieldwire.”
