YellowJacket adds lean construction feature

A new feature has been added to YellowJacket, the construction industry health & safety tool, to help measure productivity.

YellowJacket’s new lean construction feature enables users to track time spent on non-value-added activities, the number of people involved and the amount of time lost on site for each process issue.

Data captured will be displayed in visual reports including heat maps, graphs and timelines, letting users know how projects are performing. By collecting this performance data users can start to identify and target areas where improvements can be made.

YellowJacket is a software application from the Building Research Establishment (BRE).

YellowJacket director Crawford Burns said: “Improving productivity and reducing costs and delivery time are key tenets of the Governments Construction 2025 strategy which sets out a plan to deliver a 33% reduction in construction project costs and a 50% reduction in overall project delivery time. Our aim is to help our customers who are already gathering data on health & safety to start measuring their processes in line with lean and ultimately improve productivity.”

The new feature is free to access for all current YellowJacket users.
