Planning service
How the planning service works
Our systems can accurately predict out turn costs and programme durations pre-construction to help derive the best make up, procurement route and timing of delivery - enabling more intelligent procurement choices to be made. Each AI model is built using the client’s own historic data, ensuring that the complex influences from client supply chains, work and contract types, personnel and method of delivery is built in.
Our system provides clear, actionable insights about the upcoming programme across frameworks of projects, revealing hidden performance changes and risks where targeted effort can either be relaxed or increased to achieve success.

With partner AI planning systems, we can bring this cutting-edge power to the delivery of individual projects at an activity level, revealing risks and actionable insights well ahead of the time when the impacts will manifest.
