Late delivery and budget overruns are among the biggest bugaboos of the yachting industry. If a Fort Lauderdale company has its way, those may soon be things of the past.
StellarPM has developed a cloud-based job costing and tracking system called ProjectPerfect specifically for the marine construction industry. ProjectPerfect provides real-time construction data that will track any new build or refit project in minute detail. The cloud-based data system remains with the yacht throughout its lifecycle providing information to captains, shipyards, subcontractors, project managers or owners. It has a user-friendly interface that allows whomever is concerned to follow the progress of a project in real time and quickly identify any potential delays or additional costs. Customized for the project it is tracking, the system follows each task and cost—down to the installation of a single light switch cover—from concept to project completion.
Work is allocated, scheduled and controlled from the job costing system and once completed, tasks are reported back into the system allowing current project conditions to be reported immediately.
“Construction, especially marine construction, is a high-risk industry,” says Christopher Holmes of StellarPM. “It may not take long for a job estimated at a profit to start losing money, long before the yard is aware and the owner is informed that there is a problem. ProjectPerfect will eliminate financial and scheduling breakdowns and is an essential tool for any project management team.”
