Live Automated Materials Plan (LAMP)
Technology to optimise how construction materials are tracked, delivered and used onsite.
Scheduling material deliveries to construction sites can be complicated because it's, on the whole, a manual process. To help manage this, site teams may arrange for materials to be delivered before they are needed. Those materials end up being shifted around the site to accommodate work and are double or triple-handled, or materials are unintentionally over-ordered. As a result, they get damaged, wasted or stolen. Skanska is leading a team to improve supply chain analytics so project leads can better coordinate when materials are arriving, are used and leave the site. It saves time and waste, and means every piece of land on site is used to most productively. Simply put, it helps the delivery of the right materials at the right time.
