Mastering Tasks and Milestones with Buildots’ AI-Powered Plan Tracker

Plan Tracker by Buildots

Buildots, the award-winning leader in AI-based automated progress tracking, has announced the launch of Plan Tracker. This new suite of tools helps construction project managers plan and track weekly activities and milestones accurately. It uses project-specific data to keep an eye on plans. The system measures effectiveness, leading to performance improvements. It also adjusts to changes in real-time, helping to prevent construction delays.

Two new tools

Plan Tracker easily fits into existing management processes. It introduces two new tools: ‘Workplan’ and ‘Targets,’ both leveraging advanced AI algorithms and site progress data.

  • ‘Workplan’ allows project managers to break down project plans into smaller tasks, set realistic due dates for each, share the plan with the respective trades, compare actual progress against plans, and use the system-provided feedback to improve performance continuously.
  • ‘Targets’ enables managers to set critical milestones in the system and accurately track the project’s progression toward meeting these goals, including subcontractor performance and supply chain issues. Users can add new operational and contractual targets, assign related tasks and activities, and set due dates in one place. This functionality helps to easily identify issues early on and take corrective measures to protect these milestones, preventing work stoppages and delays while fostering accountability within the team and with subcontractors.

Chris Masse, Senior Superintendent at EllisDon, praises Plan Tracker: “With Buildots Plan Tracker, I can pinpoint critical milestones and actively monitor our progress towards them. It keeps us focused and helps to course-correct if needed.” He’s an early user of the technology, currently using it for a 254,000 sq. ft. project at the University of Toronto.

Boosting Lean Construction

Plan Tracker mirrors Lean Construction principles. This means interactivity, methodical planning, and improved team accountability. The tool empowers managers to make their own decisions.

Lean Construction focuses on control and predictability, maximizing value while minimizing waste. Teams looking to streamline, visualize progress, and make data-driven decisions will find Plan Tracker useful.

Aviv Leibovici, co-founder and CPO of Buildots, talks about Plan Tracker’s benefits. He says, “Plan Tracker gives our customers greater control and more ways to interact with and gain value from the unique dataset generated by Buildots.” He further adds, “Since we started, we have taken a close look at how customers use the platform in order to identify opportunities to add value. We realized that there are countless situations and decisions that construction managers face that could greatly benefit from the data collected on-site. Plan Tracker presents a bridge between this invaluable data and the managers who need it, providing unprecedented insights that will now help them manage projects even more effectively.”
