Using Jovix ® on a Building Project Introduction The General Contractor (GC) for this stadium project sustained steel erection delays on a prior stadium project, which drove up costs. The GC was motivated to fix the issue on the next project after reviews attributed the delays to a lack of real- time visibility into supply chain metrics. The GC chose Jovix to track materials from fabrication to installation, and integrating Jovix with the GC's modeling software allowed them to color-code models with corresponding statuses. Material Sequencing Visibility: Value Drivers Schedule Adherence Project Managers (PM) use Jovix ® to forecast Material Readiness ® in relation to the construction schedule. By identifying material issues early, PMs adjust workface planning and minimize time off tools, lowering labor costs. Superintendents use Jovix for heavy haul planning. Access to heavy haul material weights enables planning well in advance of the required at site (RAS) date. Material Constraint Avoidance From supplier to staging yard to warehouse to construction, a superintendent sees near real-time material status in Jovix. If materials are being fabricated out of sequence and caught early, the superintendent has time to contact the trade partner and resolve the constraint. Key Facts Industry: Commercial Construction Country: USA Products Used: • Jovix ® • Passive RFID Tags • Barcode Labels • Gate Readers • Handheld RFID Readers Key Benefits: • Schedule Adherence • Material Constraint Avoidance • Material Location • Kitting and Containerizing Case Study
