Streamlining the way you plan, schedule and execute work packages to deliver more predictable project outcomes, on time and on budget.



InEight’s construction planning software provides you with a field-proven methodology for engineering and construction work planning, packaging and quantity claiming.

  • Simplify field planning and collaboration by streamlining the work packaging process
  • Equip crews with constraint free packages of work, fully loaded with the details they need to succeed
  • Deliver true project status updates by allowing crews to progress work in steps that are relevant to them

Common Challenges

Integrate the planning of each scope of work by collaborating across subcontractors, disciplines and departments for more predictable results.

Facilitate the planning and mitigation of safety, quality and environmental risks, ensuring a safe environment and a job well done.

Seamlessly dissect the package details into daily segments for release to the crew at the time of execution.

Easily blend and leverage large amounts of data from other sources for broader project exploration.

Delineate component level quantity detail with weighted rules of credit to drive budget percent complete.
Proactively define progressing goals and drive top performance with real-time productivity feedback at the operation.


Construction work planning is the process utilized in capital project management to lay out how the work will be managed and executed. This begins as early as design and procurement and continues through the operation of contractors and subcontractors.
Construction rules of credit is a method of progressing construction tasks or materials through weighted steps. Each step is assigned a percent value for the units as a way to partially progress work at a more detailed level than the control budget may allow. An example would be partially claiming a single unit of pipe by completing each step of unload/sort, fit up, weld and quality check.

The project performance percent complete is a key variable used in calculating Earned Value. It specifies what percentage of the activities that are planned have been completed, therefore providing the driver for what cost, quantity or labor units have been earned to date.

A construction daily plan combines three key field data points, time, quantities, and daily logs, into a single streamlined process. The plan communicates activities to complete, the amount of time planned for each, and additional key talking points for the crew to know as they approach their day. By capturing each data point throughout the shift, the daily plan becomes an operational record of what happened that day for each crew on the project.

The added element of quantity tracking is what differentiates construction daily planning. While workface planning focuses on analyzing, forecasting and planning workforce supply and demand, construction daily planning takes this to the next level by integrating the project quantities that need to be completed into the analysis. This then becomes the driving force behind the forecasting of workforce moving forward.
