It happens on nearly any large-scale worksite. You have parts and materials being shipped into the site at all hours and from dozens, or maybe even hundreds, of vendors. You have job crews and possibly contractors focused on a wide range of different tasks, and they may not be in constant communication with each other.
The high volume of activity and heavy inflow of parts and materials creates a challenge. Your team members may be on their own to track down the parts they need to complete their tasks. It’s not uncommon for workers to have to sort through stacks of crates or to wander around the worksite looking for their package.
Your workers may not know exactly what part or crate they should be looking for. They may not have the knowledge needed to review the part for quality. If there is a quality issue, they might not have the information needed to take action and get a replacement part.
Even more problematic, all of this activity takes time. If your team members and contractors are spending time receiving shipments and sorting through crates, that’s time they’re not spending on the project at hand. You’re likely employing high-cost skilled workers on your job site. You want to pay them to do what they do best.
