The
Project

Spectra Group is one of the leading groups of industries in Bangladesh. Their experience in constructing architectural heights enlightens their skills and grasp of the industry.


With the growing heights of their company and the development demand of Bangladesh, they are often faced with obstacles in keeping their information record. In accordance with such issues, they were required with a construction management system. A system that would allow them to keep records of project information in one place, and their in-house employees would have access to it easily.


The system enables them to input data with relevance to calculating estimation for projects and provide a quotation price for a specific project. Furthermore, the system would align with keeping track of the project’s progress and generate timely reports, which would benefit them in knowing what the status is and when it would be completed.

scope of
work

  • Software Development
  • UI/UX Design
  • Technical Support
  • Application Training

The client wanted a simple and customized navigational system for their in-house team. Therefore, developing a technically feasible and optimal system was mandatory.


We customized the system based on our UX/UI perspective aligning with their requirement, which normalized the critical objective of the system’s idea. Moreover, technical support was provided to maintain its functionality and usability.

Technologies

The software application is meant to be used for Spectra Group’s in-house team, so a customized and personalized system was mandatory as per their requirement. Concerning their need, we used cutting-edge and modern programming technologies to develop and validate a technically enhanced system.

Core
Features

Role Specified
Module

Each member who logs into the system would have different roles according to the tasks assigned for the project. So, a unique user-specific view is generated for the members.


Moreover, a data representative, precisely an engineer, would be able to create a sheet of items required to complete the project. It is also possible to estimate the number of materials and equipment required in a specific project as well as the manpower needed for the construction. Furthermore, a price quotation depending on the estimation is given. This would allow the project’s team leads to generate a progress report

Estimation And
Quotation Report

The system's core purpose is to generate reports and make sure everyone is aligned with the project’s progress, quotation, estimation, and further details.


The report helps the team to perceive an idea about the current status of the project with this tentative analysis report. Moreover, it allows the team members to make updated estimates of the material's increment in price over time.

Material And
Equipment Module

Another important feature of the system was to have records of the inventory. The generated reports allow the engineers to allocate unused materials or equipment hours to another project if these are not being used due to a project pause or any kind of delay.


The material management module enables to make an estimated breakdown for the raw and work-in-process material and thus identify which equipment has remaining hours to be further allocated to the projects. This whole process ultimately increases work efficiency.

Progress Report

The main focus for which the whole system was developed was to generate progress reports over time for specific projects, which enable the team members with a wider vision regarding the overall project.


The purpose of this feature also benefits the company’s director and the assigned team to be synchronized in the project’s progress and acknowledge issues if any.

Challenges &
Our Approach

Data Handling

Spectra Group consists of an immense collection of databases. Therefore, representing the data in the system became an obstacle for our team. It also created a blocker when we wanted to enter it into the system for estimation purposes.

Our Approach

We implemented different formats of excel and algorithms to execute calculation methods to import tender information and give project estimation. Therefore, it resulted in resolving the data presentation and importing estimation issues without causing any usability or functional issue.

Managing Analysis Report

Generating the analysis report for the project’s estimation, quotation, and progress was a crucial task as it required multiple stages of approval from engineers to confirm the validity of the reports. Furthermore, the calculation update of the initial and final report came with various complexities to import correct information. 

Our Approach

We implemented the usage of complex and custom calculation methods that allowed the report to be calculated in a precise process. Furthermore, it was aligned to be authorized by the user before generating that report.

Equipment
Management

Managing the equipment and its lifetime estimation was a challenging task for us to implement into the system. This is because we had to verify the equipment’s lifetime every time before preparing the estimation and quotation reports.

Our Approach

We resolved the issue of equipment management by allowing the reports reviewed in multiple quotations. Therefore, allowing the engineers to provide multiple estimates of equipment, materials, and quotation allows the clients to choose which one fits them better in value and time. Equipment lifetime calculations allowed the analysts to estimate the profit and loss factors as well.

Key Numbers

The purpose of the system was to increase efficiency and make a better approach to their working process. Spectra Construction Management System is exactly what the company needs to manage their inventory and generate reports for their projects.
