Technology: Pacing the Industry 

A. L. Johnson is at the cutting edge of technological advancement. Success in the construction industry is highly dependent on the use of computer applications to perform the required functions to manage a project. Countless resources have been invested to manage our client's projects using the latest and most technically advanced computer systems and software applications that are available. To enhance the value chain, laptop computers and PDA interfaces have been used on project jobsites. This increases management efficiency from the composition of the initial estimate to the final close-out of the project.

Project Management

A. L. Johnson employees utilize Primavera and Open Plan for scheduling its project, Paragon by ViaNovus for the program management systems and Prolog. These tools offer innovative ways to link cost, schedule and documentation information. These applications are industry standard software and they are suitable for a project of any size and magnitude.

Estimating is performed using Timberline and Success. These products are excellent for cost estimating and budgeting functions, as well as for developing historical cost databases. These databases allow A. L Johnson to use benchmarking and other statistical and analytical techniques to predict costs of future projects based on historical trends by project type, trade, materials, etc. Earned value analysis calculations are performed using Cobra. This proves to be a valuable budgeting and reporting tool, and it allows the field personnel to solve any financial pitfalls before they occur.

Another important feature of the A. L. Johnson technological culture is the use of project specific web sites. Some of our larger projects require immense coordination between people in remote locations. The web allows us to form a 'virtual team' to communicate across geographical boundaries in order to provide the best possible project for our clients. It also proves to be an effective management tool, as RFI's, schedules, reports, photos, and submittals may be posted on the web to ensure efficient communication between all members of the project environment.
