1) Manage Job Set-up/Scheduling - This will require a communication with the Construction Manager (CM) to determine the actual pour date. Based upon that pour date, all lumber drops are determined and staggered into the release for even flow of trade base, and entered into BuildPro. If pour date changes, all lumber drops and subsequent trades for the homes in this release must be rescheduled. Meritage Forward initiatives regarding the “batching” of trades are incorporated at this time for trades up to the Stage 2 Framing phase. During this activity, any missing trades on the schedule are communicated to purchasing to resolve contractual or integration errors with the system.
2) Updating/Rescheduling – All maintenance to keep BuildPro up-to-date. This will require daily communications to communities to identify which, if any, trades/task completion date failures have occurred (and if defects have been submitted) and new task completion dates are confirmed and entered into BuildPro. This may only be a 5-10 minute review of daily issues that takes place before noon. Additional “batching” per Meritage Forward will be implemented for trades beyond the Stage 2 (i.e. – Windows , exterior doors, Batt & Felt, stock sheetrock, etc).
3) Gives support to Production manager regarding overlap of schedules (possibly due to delay of previous releases) with new releases that may affect start/completion dates.
4) Reports template issues to the Production manager which may require to modifications. Assists CMs with purchasing integration issues as needed to eliminate conflicting scheduling dates per trades with late options adds, and works with Production manager to resolve missing data/PO issues for trades.
5) Assists Production manager in identifying and tracking trends in internal issues regarding BuildPro update failures due to untimely reporting by CMs, early payments, CM scheduling at the field level, and failure to adhere to centralized scheduling. (i.e. – Pulling trades from one job to use on another without informing the area managers and the Production manager).
6) Provide data as needed to internal and external users as needed.
