Defect management for construction
Planfred offers a variety of features that greatly simplify jobsite defect management, such as creating defect lists, assigning defects to responsible parties, tracking progress on defect resolution, and generating reports on defect resolution status.
The compelling benefits of digital defect management:
Reduction of errors
Completion on time
4 uncomplicated steps – that's how easy it is to use:
Photograph (or film) the defect on site and describe it (also possible offline), assign it to the responsible person, set a deadline and save it as a draft or publish it directly.
All queries and clarifications can be coordinated directly in the respective task via chat. All communication remains stored chronologically in the task activities.
As soon as the construction defect has been eliminated, the responsible person reports directly in Planfred that the affected service is free of defects. In the course of this, documentation photos or type sheets, expense records and similar can be attached.
If an inspection shows that the defect still exists, the task can simply be set to the "open" status again.
The billing technicians have all the information for billing in one place, namely in the respective tasks. This includes, for example, additional orders by the client, effort data for direct labor, construction performance and acceptance photos, type sheets, and much more.

Excel spreadsheets are a commonly used tool for defect management, but there are drawbacks to them:
Error-prone: Excel spreadsheets can be prone to errors, especially when multiple people are involved in recording and processing defects.
Limited functionality: Excel spreadsheets offer limited functionality and cannot be customized as extensively as specialized defect management software. For example, it cannot generate automatic notifications when defects are assigned, real-time status updates, or detailed reports.
Difficult to collaborate: It can be difficult to collaborate effectively with Excel spreadsheets, especially when multiple people need to access them simultaneously. Versioning issues, conflicts, or data loss can occur.
Data management: Excel spreadsheets do not provide extensive data management capabilities that specialized defect management software does. It can be difficult to effectively organize, filter, or search defect data.
Digital or mobile defect management refers to the use of digital or mobile technologies to support the process of identifying, documenting, tracking, and resolving defects in a project or organization.
Compared to traditional defect management, where defects are recorded and tracked manually on paper or in Excel spreadsheets, digital or mobile defect management offers a variety of benefits.
For example, defects can be recorded and documented directly on site using a mobile device, saving time and effort and reducing the error rate. Using digital or mobile solutions also enables effective collaboration and communication between team members, as information is available in real time and can be accessed from any location. Other features include automatic defect assignment notifications, progress tracking, status updates and reporting.
In summary, digital or mobile defect management is an effective and efficient solution that improves the accuracy and transparency of defect management processes, promotes collaboration, and increases the speed of defect resolution in construction.
