To this day, “First come, first serve” is a common workflow on construction depots. Foremen have to deal with the lack of clarity and transparency regarding availability of materials. Depot managers are struggling to gather information about owned materials currently being used. Our Yard Management Service is an intuitive web-based platform that provides an overview here. A digital display of all data related to inventory and movements (rented and owned material, formwork and any additional equipment) allows for an intelligent flow of material. For instance, if owned material on site A is not used but needed on site B, the Depot Manager can easily organise the transfer. Beyond that, Yard Management Service offers automatic links to traditional services such as transport, reconditioning and storage available for modular selection.
Foreman before project start: defines the initial material needs and checks availability on the in-house depot
Depot Manager in ongoing operation: receives notification of additional formwork needs on a site. He checks availability on other sites, the in-house depot, the Doka reconditioning depot and, if applicable, his own depot at Doka – all at a glance
Foreman on site: checks the on-site materials and determines whether he can cover his needs or whether additional materials are needed
