READYMIX YOU ARE THE MANAGER

Suddenly you can be appointed to a managerial position, but are you ready for this?

Regardless of your profession, if you have an engineering degree and have worked a few years in the readymix industry (at production, in the field, laboratory, machine park, workshop, purchase, sales, R&D, BI, etc.) you can rise to a managerial position on some occasion, with your success, with your stance or with the separation or leaving of someone. Because the readymix industry gives you this chance and opportunity.

But the problem here whether you have prepared yourself for this position? You may think that you are confident and a leader character and it is normal to expect such appointment and a rise in the company you work for at any time. But are you ready now for this?

Consider that you have risen with your success in your own branch. But there are many departments and works in the company, all different from each other! How can you cover each of them. Should you really understand them in detail? For example; can you design a concrete recipe or make a slump test or repair a machine or purchase raw materials and some spares or make the dispatch. And should you know how to keep account? Or is the management something else entirely?

What do you need to know about readymix plant management?
Is there a common denominator that unites all of activities?
Or what would your boss or senior management want to see?
How can you measure the company’s success?
How can you calculate the KPIs?
Which criterias stand out for this?
What is managerial accounting?
How to cycle the cash money in the safe?
How can you ensure daily production and shipment?
What should you do and overcome at a crise time?

Do not worry, all of above and even more info available in this study just for you!

CONCRETE PUMP RENTAL COMPANIES

Why dispatchers need to work with hire services?

-It is almost impossible for readymix companies to have all size and all kind of concrete pumps for every projects in their machine park.
Under normal circumstances, readymix companies create their machine parks within a plan and according to the needs of the region and their target market. But sometimes they may need a short term or stand-by pump or pumps for daily works and special projects.

-Have you ever calculated the cost of a large boom pump for a short-term project? You may be in need of this pump only at the end of the project, let say just one month. It is obvious that such an investment would not be economical. What will you do with this pump after the project is completed? How long will it take to depreciate it? In the cost calculation you should also take into account the cost of the expert operator of this special machine.

-The use of some pumps and equipment may require expertise. For example, big boom pumps, high rise stationary pumps, moli, hydraulic distributors and long horizontal and vertical delivery line, etc. And keeping these equipment in the park is not economical where there are hiring option and companies.

-Think about hydraulic distributor booms. This equipment normally are not expected to keep in the park of a readymix company. Is it worth to create and keep an expert team for such project. Unless it’s your particular area. Because there are companies that rent complete system equipment together with expert, trained and experience team in this special field.

-Forget all above, just think about the cost of additional standby concrete pump? You may need in the case of one of your concrete pumps have an unexpected malfunction during pumping. Or the constructor requests a stand-by pump in order not to take any risk for pumping and the concrete team for the sake of planned operation. Because in construction works, every process runs connected to each other and if one link of the chain breaks, the project will suffer great damage.

-These are some subjects why readymix companies need to work with pump hiring companies. Dispatchers should always be in close contact with these companies and know about their expertise, machine park and prices for the equipment, team and other possibilities. Because they are the first responsible to solve such problems in order to work effectively and efficiently!

Further subjects to be discussed at mutual workshop:
1. How do you calculate the cost for a standby pump?
2. What are the parameters of the pumping cost per m3 concrete?
3. What is the maintenance cost of a pump?
4. What is the cost of an expert operator?
5. Is there a cost for customer satisfaction?
6. What is the main subject of a readymix company?

CONCRETE PUMP SITE REPAIR TIPS


How can you repair a concrete pump malfunction at site?

The subject of this study is to inspect and detect and appropriately eliminate the failure points of concrete pump and delivery line for the problems that may occur during pumping operation.

The site repair tips include followings:
-What needs to be done in case of a problem during pumping at site?
-Which safety precautions should be taken before starting a detailed fault search?
-Can you repair the problem at site?
-Have you got the necessary parts with the machine?
-What would be the cost if you continue for pumping with this problem?
-Whether is it worth for the sake of operation?
-Should the priority be given to solving the problem or completing the work?
-Should you inform the facility for a spare pump?
– Who should decide to continue for pumping or stopping. Operator, dispatcher, forman or workshop?
-Whose mistake is this? Operator, dispatcher, workshop, operation team or whom?
-Why above questions are very important for the customer satisfaction and who should think about that?

Troubleshooting requires detailed knowledge for concrete pump technology and machine control as well as fundamentals of pumpable concrete. Of course the pump operator can make some site repairs but provided he is prepared and trained!

Naturally, we cannot expect the pump operator to diagnose every malfunction of the machine and repair it! However, we can consider this like a first aid of the operator in an emergency while waiting a doctor!

If it is delayed or made wrong intervention for the arrangements for prevention the failures it may be much more expensive then you think apart from the stopping the operation.

For example, the pump operator can replace a blown fuse if he has it with him. However even at such an easy intervention if he is not trained and use wrong fuse may lead a much higher cost malfunction.

Before starting the emergency cleaning process, the dispatch department should be informed for the incident to stop the delivery of concrete. And depending on the situation, the facility may be asked to provide a spare pump if necessary.

I hope this e-book will be useful to the entire concrete team working in the field as well as dispatch and workshop responsibles.

And finally, if we talk together we can make your team be prepared in order to make your operations more economic, timely, satisfactorily and safely…

LİDER SEVİLMELİ Mİ, KORKULMALI MI?

Lider sevilmeli mi, yoksa liderden korkulmalı mı?

-Korku, liderler için hala üstün bir silah mı, korkulan liderler daha fazla etkiye mi sahip? Geleneksel sistemde, katı standartlar uygulanır ve çalışanlar üretime katkılarına göre ödüllendirilir. Liderler kurallara uymaya dayalı olarak teşvik ve cezalar uygular.

-Korku lidere saygı kazandırabilir. Korkuyla saygı ve otoriteyi aşılamak daha kolay ve daha kısa sürede mümkün olabilir. Ancak, korku nefrete dönüştüğünde, itaat almak yerine çalışanlar kontrolü aktif olarak reddedebilir.

– Korku, performansın artmasını sağlarken çalışanlar arasında istikrarsız bir ilişki yaratır. Aynı zamanda, sıkı kurallar yaratıcılığı ve sadakati yok edebilir.
Korkuya dayalı bir iş gücü, hatalarının sonuçlarından endişe duyduğu için risk almaya daha az eğilimlidir. Sonuç olarak yaratıcılık ve üretkenlik zarar görür.

-Korkuya dayalı bir kültür, büyümeyi ve gelişmeyi engelleyebilir. Yetenekli çalışanları korkutup kaçırma riskiyle karşı karşıya kalabilirsiniz. Yerine koyulması zor özel kişilerle çalışıyorsanız, başka bir yerde kolay iş bulabilir ve hatta rakibe gidebilir, dolayısıyla onları şirkette tutmak zor olabilir.

-Günümüzde geçmişin aksine, sevginin korkudan daha etkili ve motive edici olduğu düşünülüyor. Çalışanlar artık katılıktan hoşlanmıyor ve yapmacık
korkak çalışan yüz ifadesi takınmak istemiyor. Eğer sevilen bir liderseniz, işyerinde anlaşmazlık veya güvensizlik duygularına yakalanma olasılığınız daha düşüktür.

-Etkili yöneticiler, çalışanların görevlerini yerine getirdiğinden ve hedeflerine ulaştığından emin olmalıdır. Ancak bunun için sert ve baskıcı bir ortamın dayatılması tek seçenek değil. Bazen sert olmak da gerekebilir ama bu korkulma anlamına gelmemeli, sadece görevlerin tamamlanmasını kolaylaştırma amacıyla olmalıdır. Çalışanlar sizin iyi bir insan olduğunuza inanır ve severlerse, bilgi konusunda size güvenme olasılıkları daha yüksektir ve yararlı bilgileri paylaşmaya daha yatkındır.

-Acaba lideri sevmek iş disiplinini bozabilir mi? Liderler çalışanları performans göstermeye motive etmelidir. Bunun için, çalışanların sorunlarını dinlemesi ve onlarla açık bir şekilde konuşması, ancak gerektiğinde otorite kullanması önemlidir.

-Özellikle doğal liderler atama liderlerden daha fazla çalışanların özel hayatlarıyla ilgilidir. Çalışanların özel hayatlarını bilmek faydalı olsa da dezavantajları da vardır. Buda doğal liderlerin en zayıf noktasıdır!

READYMIX OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

 

How to calculate efficiency?

-Operational efficiency is a measure of how well a company is able to utilize its resources in order to produce the desired outputs. In other words, it is a measure of how a company is able to convert inputs into outputs.

-While there are many inputs such as; material, time, fuel, spares, labor, etc. in readymix concrete companies, there is only one output. Concrete poured into forms!

– A readymix company that is operationally efficient is able to produce and delivered more concrete with fewer inputs or the same output with less input. This results in lower costs and higher profits. As a result, the company will be able to generate more revenue and profit. It also allows businesses to respond quickly to changes in demand. This means to be more competitive and sustainable.

-There are some basic key figures to control a readymix company. And these key figures need to be obtained correctly to see how effectively the company operates. What are the right key numbers that really matter to us and how can we compare the competition to those numbers?

-For readymix concrete companies, balancing the priorities of operating efficiently against delivering excellent customer service can be challenging. As companies focus on improving operational and dispatch efficiency, the customer experience can diminish. And in providing an excellent customer experience, efficiency is often sacrificed.

– What precautions can be taken and implemented for a readymix concrete company to be both efficient and ensure customer satisfaction? Let’s talk together and make your operations more competitive!

READYMIX DISPATCH LET’S TALK TOGETHER

What is dispatch?

-Why is it so important? Why everyone in the company should take care of the dispatch? Dispatch is a logistics issue and a matter of logic, math and problem solving, it is the brain of the system. Dispatch in readymix companies emerged years ago with the start of competition. Nowadays, competition is at its peak. Beat the competition with dispatch training and dispatch workshop!

With good dispatch;
1. Waiting times of mixer and pump vehicles can be reduced.
2. Fuel consumption can be reduced.
3. Optimization in some cycles and in the fleet can be achieved.
4. Total operational safety can be increased
5. By regulating customer relations possible problems can be reduced
6. Plant efficiency can be increased
7. Sales profitability can be increased
8. Wrong decisions of dispatchers can be corrected.

-This course cover dispatcher’s job skills, including taking orders, dealing with priority customers, using advance notices to ease scheduling and delivery, callbacks, clean ups, add on orders, will calls, small load charges, excessive unloading times, scheduling math, plant vs. central dispatch, and managing the dispatch office and personnel, rapid problem solving skills, including value selling, expert phone listening skills and maintaining a proper attitude under stress.

-This course teaches dispatchers, schedulers and their managers how to take orders, schedule, and deliver concrete that meets all the requirements as agreed to with customers. And also teaches the other support departments personnel such as workshop, maintenance, operational formen, in order to achieve an economic, safe and satisfactory job cycle.

-On the other hand the sales personel can also benefit from this study in order to lessen the disputes and learn what they can and can not promise to customers. Concrete plant operators should also receive this training. because they are in any case in the operation and all efforts are for their efficient operation. Also the plant chiefs can learn the benchmark criterias and evaluate success or failure of the operations.

-In order to create a team culture within the related departments and bring scientific approach and a new vision to your operations, let’s talk together with your;
– Dispatchers
– Batchplant operators
– Formen
– Workshop responsibles
– Salesmen
– Plant chiefs
– And who wants to increase efficiency in the company

READYMIX DIGITALIZATION

Should everyone need to know 0-1 miracle for digitilazition?

– Many readymix suppliers struggle to differentiate themselves in the market. Many experience that their clients start buying from another supplier from one day to the next. Even if the concrete product is of excellent quality and you deliver the concrete on time, this might not be enough to retain a customer in the long term.

– Nowadays there is one inevitable solution, digitalization!

  • The adoption of internet of things (IoT) technology to increase productivity.
  • The power of IoT to ensure readymix meets quality and specification requirements when it is gets to the jobsite.
  • While focused on reducing waste in operations, the digital technology is the unique solution.
  • A slump indicator on the mixer trucks displays slump and temperature, enabling operators or even the customer to verify the concrete meets its specification.
  • Smart sensor technology monitors and helps to manage properties ranging from slump, temperature, volume, water added and location/status of the mixer truck.
  • Embedded sensors for quality assurance and legality.
  • The industry is focused on environmental improvement with digital technology  for example capturing CO2.
  • GPR technology bring safe and efficient operation of mixer trucks.
  • Digital technology also closes the communication gap with project stakeholders by sending notifications when a load is leaving the site, when it is ready for discharge, how much water was added, and other data points, etc.

– But there is a question, ‘are there some people preventing digitalization within the company? Is the older generation really afraid of losing their jobs?’

-Actually, there is nothing to be worried about that. Everyone is already going digital in some way, mostly by osmosis.

– For example, if a mixer driver gets a paperless approval for the delivery ticket at the site, should we consider he knows all about the 0-1 concepts?

-Which generations are working together in the readymixed industry? Today, more than half of the workforce in the world consists of Generation X. This group was born into the digital world.

– On the other hand, the Mors alphabet have similar codes which consists of only two things a dot and a dash. All the letters consist of inputs available or not in other words 1 or 0. People have used this Morse alphabet more than century. Unrestful generation, Baby Boomers should had received a telegram during their childhood.

– Now the main question is where should we start digitalization? Gradually or using direct technologies? In order to reduce employees’ fears and concerns, shouldn’t it be necessary to first create a cultural infrastructure?

-You will find all of above in this eBook which consists of following chapters; readymix concrete, industry 4.0 and rmc, innovation in rmc technology, smart sensors, concrete sensors, drum sensors, digital logistic, digital qc, robots in rmc, digital culture and transformation.

Time and efficiency are paramount for readymix industry.

-Vehicle tracking systems have been on the market for a long time but have become widespread in readymix industry in recent years and are now a standard feature in developed countries.

-Readymix industry is a mobile industry and tracking mixer trucks is a major competitive advantage. This is why leading readymix companies are turning to digital dispatching solutions.

-Having information about mixer trucks from anywhere eliminates delays in any part of the communication chain and responsibles can handle the problems from their smart phones or tablets with remote access features.

– What is telematics? It is an artificial Word and made up of the terms telecommunications and IT together. But what does the term telematics mean for readymix?

– In telematics, the data come from various information sources or systems linked together. In readymix industry, the data from the truck and the drum is indispensable.

-Why you need a digital tracking system?

Knowing  the exact location of the mixer truck

Monitoring the delivery time

Providing information to the center and customer on time.

Communicate between dispatch and multiple sites

Driver and load-concrete security

Decreasing the accident risk

Preventing vehicle breakdowns.

Evaluation of drivers performance

Fuel saving

-You can also get some important datas regarding the concrete by means of smart sensors on the drum. This allows the dispatcher to monitor concrete in real time.

Ability to monitor:

Slump

Temperature

Air %

M3 concrete in drum

Revolutions of drum

Water additions, etc.

-Time and efficiency are paramount when it comes to the readymix industry. The tracking systems simplify invoicing from pouring data, reduce operational costs and increase fleet efficiency monitoring agitator drum rotations and water usage and enhancing route optimisation. You can also benefit from increased operational efficiency and productivity as well as enhanced mixer truck utilisation.

This eBook consists of following chapters; truck tracking systems, how does it work, system configurations, smart drum sensors, what is telematics, telematics and logistic, telematics for management, telematics in the future and modern fleet management.
