No project is perfect, so finding and fixing deficiencies quickly (and cheaply!) plays a crucial role in keeping things on schedule and on budget.
Deficiency management is a complicated problem: regular inspections are an effective strategy for finding things quickly, but that’s only part of the problem – to limit inefficiency, fixes should be made quickly and correctly.
But in practice, there’s often confusion about exactly what needs to be fixed, missing details or language barriers can lead to delays, manual work assignments and sign-offs drag out timelines, and accountability suffers because auditing the work history of a task is difficult.
Can deficiency management be better?
Logging a deficiency and assigning it as a task for resolution would take a few seconds. When you spot and log a deficiency, you could make things crystal clear and overcome language barriers by taking, marking-up, and attaching photos.
Keeping things organized would be simple, thanks to notes, categories, locations, and other parameters to capture information and let you filter through your full deficiency list. Notifications would go out automatically when fixes are needed; and you’d receive notifications automatically when deficiencies are resolved. Subcontractor communication would be automatic and tracked, and subcontractors and trades could easily see lists of outstanding deficiencies so they knew exactly where work was needed. People would be accountable, because the complete work history of every task and deficiency would be available.
Bridgit makes resolving deficiencies less complicated with powerful logging tools, automatic communications, and digital records that reduce confusion, keep things moving, and increase accountability.
Initially, I had to resort to manual processes to track progress and communications around deficiency resolution. This involved dozens of email exchanges with individual trades on any given day. I now use Bridgit 24/7 to stay on top of all issues across multiple project sites and save time by automating emails for sending project status reports.
