Vico Office Production Controller
On-Site Monitoring and Problem Solving Solution
At Vico we like to say that creating an optimized location-based schedule is only one half of the equation. Managing to that schedule on the jobsite is the other half! But bringing BIM out to the jobsite is a natural extension of its powerful problem-solving abilities.
Vico Production Controller provides tight control over your project schedule’s actual progress. Using Production Controller you can identify schedule glitches early on, analyze their effect on the overall project schedule and make sure the appropriate actions are taken.
Production Controller’s control chart provides an easy to use and intuitive color-coded feedback about the state of the project. Team members update the Task per Location status on a daily or weekly basis and project stakeholders can easily identify schedule problems.
Production Controller forecasting tools enable planners to easily analyze project schedules based on actual progress. In addition, users can visualize the effect of delayed activities on the entire schedule, and swiftly run “what-if?” scenarios.

Another critical piece to Production Controller is being able to mine the Subs' promised versus actual productivity data. This becomes extremely important data when updating your Vico Standard 5D Library. The Vico Standard 5D Library is organized by the set of activities required to construct each building element and the sequence in which these activities are performed. Included in the Library are average productivity rates by trade and standard formulas for deriving labor and material resource requirements. By updating this information with actuals from each new project, your data set becomes more refined and accurate...and a powerful differentiator to Owners.
