Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing manufacturing execution system (MES) software for Construction. The construction industry has embraced MES to enable real-time visibility into the manufacturing process.

LYNQ MES is being used in the construction equipment manufacturing sector to optimise the production of heavy machinery and equipment such as excavators, bulldozers, cranes, and loaders.


MES in the Construction industry.

MES incorporates core principles, such as production planning, quality control, workflow management, and data analytics, which can be applied to improve efficiency, coordination, and quality in construction projects.

  • Improve efficiency.
  • Reduce costs.
  • Minimise loss.

By leveraging off-site manufacturing, the construction industry aims to improve productivity, reduce costs, enhance quality, and promote sustainable building practices. The goal is to manufacture all the industry’s components efficiently, with high quality and precision, to support the construction process.

On average, a construction manufacturer of 50 resources (employees plus machines) could save $28,000 per month by using LYNQ MES. ROI calculator >>

Key features.

  1. Advanced planning and scheduling.

    Control complex production schedules, auto-schedule production, allocate resources for optimum productive hours and track the performance of your entire manufacturing operation against production targets. Advanced planning and data analysis tools for the construction industry. Plan >>

  2. Data collection.

    Collect data on the production line, how efficiently it is performing and identify where losses are occurring. Effective shop-floor data capture software enables a manufacturer to know exactly what is happening, in real-time, for end-to-end traceability of raw materials, components and assembly, improving defect detection and quality control at every step.  Track >>

  3. Automate production.

    With automatic data capture from machines, standardised workflows, accelerated business processes and smart quality control. Access and report on manufacturing data in the click of a button to streamline operations, work as productively as possible and reduce manual intervention. Automate >>

  4. Analyse data.

    Gain intelligent insight into your construction manufacturing data. Know exactly what is happening at every stage of production and be able to use this data to make process improvements; saving time and increasing production. Build reports with ease and view data dashboards on operations via any connected device. Analyse >>

  5. Optimise manufacturing.

    Gain tools to communicate more effectively via instant messaging. Move away from paper based systems with online jobs, online schedules and a plan that is accessible by everyone via laptops or tablets. Identify and address issues promptly with automatic alerts and notifications, connecting shop-floor employees with management. Optimise >>

Design, manufacturing and logistics: teething problems.

Design, manufacturing and logistics: teething problems.

Frequent changes in project design can lead to delays and cost overruns. Traditional design processes may not integrate well with construction and logistics planning, leading to inefficiencies in the later stages of the project. Some construction companies still rely on outdated design tools and software. Complex global supply chains for materials and components disruptions, such as delays, shortages, or price fluctuations, can impact manufacturing schedules. Limited access to construction sites in urban areas or remote locations can hinder logistics and increase costs. Handling and disposing of construction waste can be a logistical challenge, especially in areas with strict environmental regulations.

Addressing these teething problems requires a combination of technology adoption, process optimisation, and effective project management. Construction companies that are proactive in tackling these challenges are more likely to deliver projects on time and within budget while maintaining high-quality standards.

Lead times, costs and carbon footprint.

Lead times, costs and carbon footprint.

While the demand for housing is high, access to a reliable supply chain that can meet the output and standards required from today’s building regulations and carbon-neutral goals presents a big challenge.

Collaborative planning, transparent communication, and a commitment to sustainable practices are essential for managing lead times, costs, and the carbon footprint effectively. As an MES provider, LYNQ is well-positioned and already collaborating with developers, architects, quantity surveyors and manufacturers to help meet these goals.

The scale of the housing shortfall.

The scale of the housing shortfall.

As of late 2022, over 1.8 billion individuals did not have access to adequate housing. About 150 million people are in a state of permanent homelessness, enduring the harsh realities of life without a secure shelter. Adding to this is the fact that an average of 15 million individuals are forcibly evicted from their homes each year.

In the United States, the housing crisis remains an ongoing challenge, with a need for 6.5 million new homes to effectively address the issue. This number continues to grow, exacerbating the situation day by day. Similarly, in the United Kingdom, there is an urgent need for 4.3 million homes to alleviate the backlog of individuals residing in public housing. Even nations with seemingly robust economies have found themselves unable to adequately resolve the pressing housing shortfall crisis.

The shortfall is influenced by various factors such as geographical variation, population growth, economic factors, government policies, construction industry capacity (labour shortages, material costs, and construction timelines play a role), affordability, urbanisation, cultural and demographic factors, and market cycles.

The role of developers and competition for land.

The role of developers and competition for land.

One of the biggest hurdles for building homes quickly is land availability and planning consent. These factors present greater hurdles than labour and skills, material costs, or even money. Big construction projects are invasive, noisy and take months, which are not popular with the constituents of local authorities, despite the upside of the new homes.

Developers are key players in the construction industry, driving the development of residential, commercial, and industrial projects. Competition for land is intense, particularly in urban areas and desirable locations. Developers’ ability to secure and develop land profitably depends on factors like market conditions, regulatory compliance, and their capacity to manage costs effectively. These dynamics have a profound impact on urban development and the availability and affordability of housing and commercial spaces.
