Granite Construction Company, a full service materials producer, faced several challenges in optimizing their paving operations and estimating processes. They needed to ensure they had an adequate number of projects and crews to meet their goals while efficiently allocating their resources. Additionally, tracking project progress and making timely adjustments in trucking and production presented ongoing difficulties. Traditional methods, such as making numerous phone calls to foremen and operators, proved time-consuming and disruptive.
