SYNCHRONISED CITE™

WHAT IS SYNCHRONISED CITE™?

SYNCHONISED CITE is an integrated performance management system that simplifies construction site operations to optimise the flow of resources and deliver peak productivity. Based on Lean Thinking principles, this comprehensive methodology provides program surety and maximum cost-efficiency.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The system consists of a series of integrated modules, which together form the SYNCHRONISED CITE.

Successful implementation of SYNCHRONISED CITE™ starts with establishing a strategic alignment across both corporate and project leadership teams.


The leadership group should define objectives for the deployment and agree clear, measurable targets for success. Embedding and cascading these goals through business plans creates a unified direction and purpose.

Subcontractor engagement and their subsequent commercial success are pivotal to the effective implementation of SYNCHRONISED CITE.


Creating a platform for success requires contractual alignment of subcontractor deliverables and education in the principles and practices of the system which they will follow. With the foundations established, the principal contractor’s goal is to enable each subcontractor to deliver their contractual obligations successfully.

Supply chain optimisation requires full integration through enduring supplier relationships. By fostering supplier partnerships over the long-term, a deep understanding of each parties’ requirements for success develops.


Principles and practices for the effective procurement, packaging, delivery and presentation of materials can all be established and continually improved, leading to increased cost-effectiveness and higher quality outcomes.

A well-defined program developed through collaborative planning that aligns all stakeholders is the single greatest asset for a project.


Developing this roadmap for success involves the collation and analysis of all project inputs, critical milestones, interdependencies and constraints, to create a comprehensive schedule that will be followed by all parties.


ORBIZ advocate implementation of Last Planner System® principles using a web-based SaaS system such as Touchplan® to enable the development and management of an effective program.

A well-organised site is critical to ensuring that materials, equipment and labour can flow effectively to enable the safe and efficient delivery of the program.


Successfully organising the site involves planning where all resources will enter and then flow through the site to reach work fronts when they are required. Each phase of the program requires a specific plan, and adherence requires regulation of clear standards.

Aligning all stakeholders with the implementation strategy is vital to success. Translating the objectives to create meaningful targets for each project stakeholder enables everyone to understand what contribution they are required to make and the impact they will have.


Deploying these targets through contractual agreements and organisational performance metrics empowers the leadership team to measure progress and effectively manage the strategy through each level of the project.

An effective quality management system strives towards the goal of one-touch construction where no rework is required – increasing cost-effectiveness and customer satisfaction.


The aim is to create processes that stop quality defects from occurring whilst effectively containing any problems that do arise. These procedures deliver the highest level of quality at the lowest cost.

The efficient deployment of labour is critical to cost management and ensuring projects are delivered on-time.


Effective labour planning involves an in-depth analysis of the work breakdown structure to determine the most efficient sequence of activities and the time required to complete each task. This detail provides accurate cost estimates and a platform for performance management.

The material management system controls the movement and storage of materials on-site to ensure that appropriate inventory levels are maintained, quality and integrity is protected, and supply to the work fronts is timely. 


A robust system prevents excessive quantities of materials from accumulating and impacting safety, quality and productivity, whilst mitigating the risk of shortages.

Sustainable improvement through changes in operating practices requires all project stakeholders and personnel to understand the principles behind the new ways of working so they can embrace and champion them.


Knowledge and capability are built within the project organisation through a structured program of education, on the job coaching and practical application experience.

The complex nature of construction project organisations requires the deployment of a comprehensive communication framework that enables continuous and efficient dialogue with all stakeholders.


The system must cascade strategy, report performance and escalate problems utilising a series of modes, including, traditional meeting forums, visual cues, and digital and audio platforms. This series of channels enables effective communication across large, dispersed and multilingual workforces.
