When you are in charge of lean retail construction projects designed for high-end renters, you need to make sure you are designing each project for the future. But you also need to make sure that the leadership style involved does not cost too much money with overproduction. Retail construction design should involve methods for avoiding faulty communication that can end up costing the project too much money. Profits are always at risk. Overproduction blunders can be avoided in any retail design-build construction if you have the right design-build construction contractor. Here are 5 lean retail construction methods that can end your overproduction.
Firmly Establish Retail Construction Duties
The most important layer of profits protection is to clarify job duties and titles so that workers are not standing around waiting for tasks. Make sure your workers know who to ask if they need help on a task that it out of their expertise. Not only does this save time finding the help that they need but it also ensures the quality of work by making sure the right skills are being attributed to the right tasks.
Keeping Communication In Check
When it comes to overproduction, communication delegation is key. It can be essential to filter over-communicating via text messages, emails, or calls to people that are not included or essential to project action items.
Don’t Over-Do Quality Control
The same principles for communication also apply to quality control. In most cases, a 2-check process is more efficient for production quality and also keeping labor costs down. When it comes to estimates, it can cost you a lot of money to have more than 3 people triple-check estimates.
Keep Inventory Tight & Find Alternate Uses For Waste
By the end of a construction job there should be little to 0 extra inventory upon a project completion. A lot of extra inventory is a sign of poor inventory management. Make sure the construction site has everything that it needs to finish a job, but there should always be an estimated amount of material for each project. If more inventory is needed than what was estimated there needs to be documentation on why to be reviewed later.
Find Alternate Uses For Waste
Waste created from construction work should also be identified before the work begins as well as during the work. Management should always be looking for ways minimize work waste or even prevent waste from happening altogether. Remember: one company’s waste can be another company’s treasure. Try to find a company who might find use in your waste or extra inventory. There might be a partnership to be made with another company to take or even buy your waste and extra inventory for other uses.
