AUSTIN, TX, May 31, 2019 – Clear Flow Matrix, a subsidiary of Lott Brothers Construction Company, Inc., announced the launch of Balanced WorkFront, a construction management software that delivers powerful scheduling and resource management tools to commercial construction project engineers, project managers, schedulers, and superintendents. Balanced Worked is also used by project owners and developers to quickly assess project status and projected finish dates.
Balanced WorkFront is the culmination of three decades of research and represents an evolution beyond CPM and lean construction methodologies. Visually, Balanced WorkFront is a two-dimensional grid composed of work areas and trade work activity with an embedded timeline component, and is a simple and powerful solution for organizing trades and coordinating flow to meet the project schedule.
“We originally designed Balanced WorkFront as a straightforward visual management tool for our remote staff,” explained Wayne Lott, chief executive at Clear Flow Matrix. “As our research into lean construction and takt time evolved, we incorporated it into Balanced WorkFront, leading to the market-ready solution we have today.”
The research surrounding Balanced WorkFront was the subject of a Masters’ thesis by Augusto V. Tiezzi and was published by the University of Texas at Austin.
“Our investments have always been in research that moves construction forward as an industry,” said Lott. “Balanced WorkFront is the fruit of those labors.”
“BIM software is seeing increasing adoption in construction companies and corporate construction departments,” related Rex Bull, Clear Flow Matrix’s chief marketing officer. “While these tools are rich in information, their complexity can make them hard to use for personnel without a specific skillset. Anyone can pick up and master Balanced WorkFront, extending its value across the entire organization.”
Balanced WorkFront is available as a digital download from balancedworkfront.com. The software costs $199 per year to license and all licenses come with a one-month free evaluation period.
