Breakout Session: Shop Metrics

In this session, we will delve into the critical performance metrics that every mechanical fabrication shop should track to enhance efficiency and productivity. Participants will gain insights into how to effectively gather and input essential data points through Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) processes. Key metrics such as weld inches, pounds of sheet metal, and feet of pipe will be discussed, providing a clear understanding of how these indicators can drive better decision-making and operational improvements. Furthermore, the session will offer guidance on creating impactful dashboards using software to visualize the data. We will explore the criteria for selecting the most relevant metrics to display, ensuring that your dashboards provide actionable insights. By the end of the session, contractors will be equipped with the knowledge to set up and maintain a robust performance tracking system that enhances visibility and accountability within their fabrication shops.
