SyncroSite is one of the first software available for on-site production management. SyncroSite is a Web-based cloud-computing system, which means that no installations are required.
The research groups Construction Production and Industrial Logistics at Luleå University of technology (LTU) have been working on streamlining production at construction sites for over 10 years. This work has been carried out in close collaboration with Swedish construction companies and created the SyncroSite innovation. Collaboration between StruSoft, IntelliWork and Designtech has been established for the commercialization of SyncroSite. The development is partly financed by the Vinnova/Bygginnovationen and SBUF. Pilots are conducted together with NCC, Nåiden and Byggmästar´n i Skåne.
SyncroSte contains, among other things, functions to coordinate the use of shared resources, automatic revisions of call-off and delivery dates, prioritation and availability schedule for machinery and equipment, management of disposal sites for materials, machinery and equipment.
Benefits to use SyncroSite includes: Simplified production worktask preparation. Reduced risk that works tasks becomes disrupted. Reduced risk of shortfalls are detected when the material is to be used. Instead, shortfalls are detected early and action is taken immediately to reduce the disturbance. It is also easier for workers to find equipment and materials.
