LPS + BIM = 3D weekly planning? A practical insight

Find out how the integration of LPS and BIM in specter construction software results in a dynamic and user-friendly planning environment that increases efficiency and productivity on the construction site.

The need for an effective weekly preview

In the dynamic world of construction, precise coordination of trades is essential. The question arises: why is a detailed weekly forecast so important? The answer lies in the ability to ensure a clear overview of upcoming and ongoing work, which ultimately increases efficiency and productivity on the construction site. But that's not all - it's all about using weekly planning as 'micro-planning' in the context of the whole project. This means that the detailed planning of the individual weeks is not viewed in isolation, but functions as an integral part of the overall planning in terms of time, costs and quality framework of the project, the so-called "macro planning". In this way, the weekly forecast represents a crucial interface that ensures that the short-term activities are always in line with the long-term project goals and thus contribute to the effectiveness and efficiency of the overall project.

The need for an effective weekly preview

A detailed weekly forecast is the backbone of any construction site to seamlessly control the work. With specter, you can take this process to a new level by easily rescheduling tasks and integrating new activities directly into your 3D environment.

The 6W's of weekly planning

In the construction industry, there is always a tension between three key dimensions: Time, cost and quality. The common denominator of all these aspects is information. Given the increasing complexity in the construction industry, it is essential to simplify and structure processes to effectively address these dimensions. This leads us to the 6Ws of weekly planning, a crucial method for simplifying and efficiently organizing construction processes.

The 6Ws consist of the following key questions: What should happen on the construction site? When should it happen? Where will it take place? Who is responsible for carrying it out? What will it be done with, i.e. what materials and information will be needed? And finally, the why of the weekly planning: Why do I want to complete certain tasks this week? The answer to this is aimed at achieving larger goals such as completing a floor or wall.

Specter's goal is to make these 6Ws particularly tangible and simple to make construction more efficient. By integrating these 6Ws into the planning and the associated clear structuring and prioritization of tasks, Specter helps to master the challenges in the construction industry and significantly increase efficiency on the construction site.

The practice of specter construction software: Beyond the theory

Proven in the field, specter facilitates communication between the parties involved and promotes collaboration through real-time or live data from the construction site. This minimizes misunderstandings and promotes smooth execution.

Automated planning with flexibility and real-time adjustment

specter revolutionizes the planning process with its ability to make dynamic adjustments and provide interactive planning tools. From the customization of planning views to the individual design of the tools, you can configure specter according to your needs.

Practical application of specter construction software

The software not only offers flexible planning levels, but also allows you to react to changes in real time. Whether it's the weather, resource availability or unforeseen project issues, specter helps you stay on top of things and adjust your plans accordingly.

Practical application of specter construction software: bringing life to weekly planning

The use of specter in weekly planning shows how the weekly preview adapts and changes in real time. Users can not only adjust the levels in the LPS, but also record additional information on the Z-axis or directly on the "note".

Planning and rescheduling in specter

Rescheduling tasks in specter is straightforward and intuitive. Users can simply select tasks and move them to a new position in the calendar. When planning new tasks, you first select the corresponding component, whereupon the associated tasks appear and can be integrated directly into the planning.


How does specter support planning at different levels?

specter enables flexible planning at various levels, from detailed tasks for individual components to larger sections. This versatility makes it easier to adapt the planning to specific requirements.


Can adjustments be made in specter during ongoing planning?

Yes, specter makes it easy to reschedule and adjust tasks. Changes can be made in real time, which enables dynamic and flexible planning.


What role does user-friendliness play in specter?

User-friendliness is a central element of specter. With intuitive operating elements and a clear interface, specter is designed to make the planning process as simple and efficient as possible.


How does specter help to improve communication on the construction site?

With its visual and interactive planning tools, specter improves communication between the trades. Everyone involved has access to up-to-date information, which reduces misunderstandings and promotes collaboration.


Can specter be adapted to specific project requirements?

specter offers extensive customization options to meet different project requirements. From the customization of views to the individual design of the planning tools, users can configure specter according to their needs.


While AI is becoming increasingly important on the construction site, the industry is only just beginning to exploit the full potential of these technologies. The coming years promise exciting developments in which AI will play a central role in the transformation of the construction industry. For construction management and project managers, this means engaging with these technologies to stay up to date and secure competitive advantage. It is clear that the construction sites of the future will be intelligent - and the future has already begun.

In the modern construction industry, specter is an indispensable tool that reduces the complexity of construction planning and promotes a smooth process on the construction site. By combining LPS and BIM in a user-friendly interface, specter enables an innovative and efficient way of construction planning that meets the challenges of modern construction projects.
