Which beams are to be cut and where? How many holes have to be drilled in which plank? And then: where is what to be fitted? The four gentlemen of Meibergers´ construction planning have a lot to do: they bring the architect´s designs to life; they add a third dimension to two dimensional plans. They bring the lines to life and give them volume: what Peter, Sepp, Mathias and Stefan can do today on a computer used to require a sharpened pencil, a ruler and a lot of patience in the past. The four colleagues are drawing up complex construction instructions. Each drain and supply pipe must be thought of, each component must be marked with a position number. In the end, the carpenter should not need to worry about where to put which part. Before the aforementioned carpenter can get down to work, the CNC machine, which is on the floor below them and four doors further along, is fed with the data from the four colleagues in the work planning department. The machine cuts beams and planks in seconds. Then at the construction site, the components which have been prefabricated on giant tables in the plant are put up in no time. It is of course only possible thanks to sophisticated construction time planning. That is why the plumber must be on the spot on Wednesday at 3 p.m. and not a week later. And the wooden sections? They should arrive at 11 a.m. and no-one will have to wait until 2 p.m. The windows, the plumbers and the electricians. A detailed time plan is worked out in advance in order to avoid losing time by waiting and delays. Here things aren’t just measured in millimetres – the key is for everyone to be able to rely on each other.
