Particularly in the construction industry the effective use of expensive machines and skilled workers are essential. Unnecessary machine transports are to be avoided and the utilisation should always be optimal. The allocation of machine- and logistics costs of particular projects is often a problem.
Personnel costs should also not be underestimated in an industry that has known the minimum wage for a long time. Good machine operators are not only difficult to find, they are also well paid. They present a decisive factor for the success of a project. A fair and prompt recording of working times on construction sites is hardly possible in paper form.
Cost calculation is just as important as the effective use of machines and personnel. Deficiencies on construction sites can only be detected by prompt costing. Swift action is necessary when costs get out of hand.
