How onTarget is enabling Data Driven Scheduling

As we start 2018 with a bright Supermoon, we are proud of what we achieved in 2017 and excited about what we plan to roll out in 2018. Overall it has been a great year for construction technology. We have seen the rise of interoperability and taken steps towards standardization of workflow. We (OpenData RFI Link) witnessed concrete evidence of BIM-based cost saving. We prepared a detailed case study with our customer - Hollister Construction where we were able to demonstrate the value proposition. An eventful year full of milestones towards improving the construction industry with data-driven decision making and automation of workflow. As we start the new year, we reflect back on the most used features of 2017.


                                                                                Custom Location Views


onTarget enables you to save custom views of critical project locations in your 3D BIM Model. Each one of your team members can now access the views instantly to get the right information at the right time. You can now build better Look-Ahead Schedules using Custom Views isolating locations, rooms, sections, and floors. Filter through large models with a click to get to critical location instantly. Let your field project managers and superintendents quickly access the information like RFI, Submittals, Activities, Photographs and live conversations of an isolated location element in BIM model.


                                                                     Planned Percent Complete Reports



By leveraging Lean Principles, onTarget allows you to print field planning and progress tracking reports with a click. You can track KPIs with a standardized cost code or subcontractor's name. Monitor team performance and improve accountability through PPC reports and Actual vs Planned progress for each trade.


                                                                              360° Panoramic Photos



Add 360 photos in onTarget to validate the progress. Project controls and sharing information from the field gets even easier when you can seamlessly visualize it.


                                                                       Improved Scheduling interface



We added inline editing for the project managers, supers and schedulers to create their schedules easily and faster. You can now create your Master Schedule as well as our 2 week look ahead planning in onTarget. We have enabled bulk assignee using cost code or activity code so that you can easily track the progress of your team members or your subcontractor.


                                                                                      Mobile App



The onTarget mobile app allows you to plan, update and create your look-ahead schedules or master schedules. It's that simple. You can drastically increase collaboration efficiency drastically using the live conversation feature of onTarget. Attach images from the job site to validate the progress and access the activity feed. Communicate any bottlenecks and issues instantly with your team members. It is high time we felt the widespread smartphone epidemic in a construction site!


                                                                           Data Driven Scheduling



As we started tracking the engagement metrics of onTarget, we found that most of you were especially keen on the field scheduling and planning features. We improved the scheduling features using a Critical Path algorithm but with real-time and dynamic data offering you the world's first data-driven live scheduling platform.


                                                                                Open Integration




Integration is our little cherry on top.You can now sync data 2 way between your favorite best of breed solutions like Procore( Sync your RFIs, Submittals, Schedule and Team members). We support 2-way synchronization with most relevant scheduling platforms such as Oracle Primavera and MS Project. Forget about manual data input or double entry, onTarget’s integration services offer you full transparency while maintaining the quality, privacy, and security of your data. You can overwrite and merge with version controls when you import new schedule versions or BIM Models from Revit, Navisworks or directly from your BIM-360 account.


Are you ready to take the next step? Schedule a Demo and start automating your schedule updates to make proactive decisions and see delays before they happen.
