Construction Industry is critical to future business success.

Construction Industry musthelp users understand how to capture value.

Users must operate in ways that ensure Construction Industry sustainability.

Value


Keynote speaker crisis in construction a user s perspective

So, what is our crisis?

  • Unprecedented demand

  • Shrinking owner capabilities

  • Limited contractor resources

  • Sold-out fabricators

  • Spot material shortages

  • Has led to……

  • Higher costs

  • Longer schedules

  • Lower quality

  • Lower ROIC

Value From Alliances

  • If you have:

    • Good Project Processes

    • Value Improving Practices (VE/PS)

    • Integrated Teams

  • Then:

    • Alliances provide access to the best people at a competitive cost (not necessarily the lowest cost).

    • Alliances reduce cycle times.

    • Alliances allow reasonable flexibility at lowest cost.

    • Alliances allow life cycle data for full facilities/programs rather than project by project.

    • Alliances reduce administrative costs.

    • Alliances promote mutual competitiveness.

Capital Productivity Best Practices

  • Front-end load vs. business goals

  • Install competitively superior technology

  • Minimize non-value adding investment

  • Execute projects with no changes

The four CORPORATE BEST PRACTICES FOR CAPITAL PRODUCTIVITYprovide a value-based approach to capital management for DuPont. They align the day-to-day behavior and mindset of employees who plan and execute capital projects with the overall value objectives to the entire organization. They provide the foundation for making value-based decisions in alignment with the greater objectives of the business.

Globally Converging Mega Trends

  • Fewer resources + unprecedented demand

  • Economic impacts: - energy

  • - disasters

  • - terrorism

  • Flat productivity

  • Vocational training decline


A perfect storm has formed

A Perfect Storm Has Formed

  • Construction Labor Research Council reports Industry needs 95,000 new craft persons per year for the next ten years to replace those leaving.

  • Pre-Katrina growth estimates were 90,000 and today’s estimates range as high as 180,000 each year for the next ten years.

  • This unprecedented demand could cause inadequately skilled people to enter the work force increasing injury rates, installation costs, schedules and overtime while quality suffers.
