Shipyards Construction and Mainteinance
Many of the tasks and conditions associated with shipbuilding, maintenance and repair operations remain the same. The enormous need for manpower in this activity is very evident, therefore the coordination of planning and control functions are essential to avoid cost overruns and affecting the level of service expected by clients.
We have worked in ship maintenance and construction companies where we have been able to align demand planning with the scheduling, control and supervision of the work on the ground in order to maintain the ideal cost and productivity.
Planning and Scheduling
- • Work and activity planning and scheduling model.
- • Generation of Gantt-type chronograms by activity based on work standards.
- • Definition of necessary resources based on production standards (man hours, materials, third parties, etc.).
- • Definition of consumption budgets for expense control.
- • Establish scheduled times prior to the execution of the work.
- • Daily evaluation of the chronogram to identify on-time compliance with the assigned tasks.
- • Control over the work to be performed and planning of the installed capacity.
- • Reduction of labour, raw material and third-party costs.
- • Reduction of operating expenses.

“The changes that have been made have enabled us to identify the number of areas of opportunity that the shipyard has. I'm glad to see we have had excellent results after 3 failed attempts in the past. I said I had to hire the best and I did.”
