Question of the Day By: Stan Sias

“I am an architect and would like to get truss design software so that I can do my own designs and then bid out the truss package to the lowest bidder. Why won’t any of the design software providers give me their software?”

?

The component manufacturing industry in North America has worked hard over the last fifty plus years to not let truss manufacturing slip into a commodity marketplace. Many component manufacturers (CMs) take great pride in their ability to manage their raw materials and their individual truss designs to take the greatest advantage of available strength (and costs) on which to base their design efficiency and optimization.

Stan Sias - National Manager

Plated Truss Industry at Simpson Strong-Tie

material is money and anything that they don’t have to buy and install, particularly up inside roof framing, is greatly appreciated. On the other hand, when a building designer says, “Here, bid this just as I have it designed with no revisions!,” the CM is relegated to simply a manufacturer for lowest price. There is no value to add and there is little profit with which to try and survive. Innovation is lost and sooner or later they lose interest and/or go broke.

The talents of the truss technicians and designers, especially when taking into account the desires of the building designer and the installation contractor, can turn a project into either a nightmare or a pleasant experience that assures continued business. Skilled truss technicians know their inventory and their manufacturing shops’ strengths and limitations, and work to maximize the efficiency of each. They know their industry design standards and the building code inside and out and put both to work in their efforts.

M o s t o f t o d a y ’s c o m p o n e n t manufacturers have worked hard to get to where they are today and are darned proud of it. Many have just come off the worst economic times of their careers and have no interest in working hard for no profit. The latest and greatest equipment and design software will simply sit idle without skilled truss technicians to provide the most economic solutions for the building designers and builders.

They also know that the job of the installer is made exponentially easier if they don’t have to buy and install extra lateral restraints and diagonal bracing. They communicate with the contractors and provide them with the least expensive solution to install, while meeting all the stated design criteria for the given project. Contractors understand that time and

Who can blame the CM for trying to protect the investment they have in their most precious resource…their people, and their collective intellectual property. After all, though we call them component manufacturers, the best are really good listeners, skilled in the standards and really want to provide the best solution, not just another set of trusses.

Design and Sales Staffing Shortage Solutions Website: www.todd-drummond.com Phone: (USA) 603-763-8857 Email: todd@todd-drummond.com Copyrights © 2014

The never-ending demand of increasing output while reducing cost affects every component manufacturer. Most of the time when we have to increase the output of a department, we think we have to hire more staff. What if you did not have to increase the staff for designers and salespeople while getting much more from them? What would this require and has it been done before? What would be the results? First, let us look at the results and ROI if you could do this. We have to define the results as something we can all agree would make a difference. Let us use a conservative time unit and say each designer and salesperson will be given an extra half hour per day, every day, to perform their task within the same 8-hour day they already work. This simply means every designer will have an extra ½ hour to create more designs and every salesperson will have an extra ½ hour to make more sales calls and not work more hours per day. What does this do for your company? 1.

Use existing staff – no extra salary, no new hire training and fewer mistakes using same personnel. For every people, ½ hour gain is equal to an extra 15 hours per week.

2.

Gross margin returns calculations (0.5 hours ÷ 8 hours = 6.25% increase) Each Designer = $1 million/year sales at 30% gross margin at 6.25% increase = $18,750 in additional gross margin. E a c h S a l e s p e r s o n = $ 3 m i l l i o n / y e a r s a l e s a t 3 0 % g r o s s m a rg i n at 6.25% increase = $56,250 in additional gross margin. This means if your design department is the bottleneck of company, your company will gain $18,750 of gross margin for each designer. If the salespeople are the bottleneck, your company stands to gain $56,250 of gross margin per salesperson. (TOC – theory of constraints)

3.

You get a labor cost savings by not having to hire more staff and you get more margin dollars produced.

Take a quick survey within your company and ask the following… Question 1: How often each day are you interrupted by phone calls from someone trying to find common need-to-know information for each project? How long does this phone call last? Question 2: How often each day are you interrupted by phone calls from someone wanting to know your schedule and time to complete or start their requested task? How long does this phone call last? Question 3: How often each day are the sale people calling someone in the company to find out the production and delivery schedule? How long does this phone call last? Question 4: How much time each day are you spending searching for needed information in the project folder, e-mails or notes because it is not at your fingertips? Question 5: How much time does the design and/or sales team spend each week reviewing current and upcoming projects to make sure everything is processed properly? In other words, making sure each step or task is being completed on time? Question 6: How much time do they spend doing something other than designing or selling? After you completed this quick survey of your groups, you are going to find they waste at least 2 hours every day. Are you thinking I am inflating my estimation of 2 hours per day? Ask yourself, how long does the average interrupting phone call, information search, or scheduler search take from each person’s time? The answer is 10 to 15 minutes. This means they only have to be interrupted 8 to 12 times per day with phone calls, searching for missing information, and searching schedules. Here is how to resolve this problem. Implement an all-in-one Internet-based communication, capacity scheduling, file storage, and project task management system. Link everything so that Continued on page 24

Linear Saw Time Study Spreadsheet for Productivity Testimonial of Consultation Services

Over the years United Truss (a subsidiary of United Lumber) has done an outstanding job of providing our customers with quality trusses for their building needs. We reached a point, though, where our manual practices were restricting our capacity to not only serve existing clients, but also limited our ability to serve or target new customers. So in the midst of automating our plant and updating our production/design practices we chose to contact Todd. Innisfil, ON Canada Were we ever glad we made the leap to request Todd’s consultation services. Todd’s consultation encompassed time and motion studies, best practices, the theory and practical components of lean manufacturing, which then enabled us to go back to the drawing board in terms of our pricing model. For years we had been pricing our products without actually and properly tracking our actual costs. Todd’s teachings showed that we could and should incorporate proper costing fundamentals into our model, and the icing was he showed us how to do this. Without a doubt we made the right decision to hire Todd Drummond, and once fully implemented, we have no doubt that United Truss will reach heights we had never thought possible under our old regime. Our entire staff, encompassing our production and design staff as well, were both impressed and thankful for the ideas and instructions that Todd brought to the table. Thanks Todd

LUMBER MARKET INTELLIGENCE L Softwood Framing Lumber Market Forecast & Trade Sreategies Since 1985 S

Matt Layman, Publisher TWITTER.com/Laymansguide | www.laymansguide.org | LinkedIn Group Layman’s Lumber Guide

Decrease Lumber Costs ~ Increase Profits Write on a scratch pad, how much you spent on framing lumber in 2013 ... or your total lumber sales for 2013. My statistics show that over the course of a year, the average lumber price change per week, either up or down, is 2.18%. Purchasing before weekly price increases or after price decreases, could lower your annual lumber costs by over 2%. Selling prior to decreases or after increases can improve annual selling averages by over 2%. Let’s be very conservative. Multiply the number on your scratch pad by only “0.01�...1%. That is money left on the table unless you “know� what lumber prices will do next week and know whether to buy early week or late week...sell aggressively early week or lay back. Layman’s LUMBER MARKET INTELLIGENCE provides accurate, reliable, proven forecasts and trading strategies that advise which way the lumber market will move...and when. It not only pays for itself, it makes your business more profitable...and not at some arbitrary time in the future...�next week and every week.� Looking Forward...ml Request subscription information from matt@laymansguide.org ... 336-516-6684 Follow us on Twitter.com/laymansguide www.laymansguide.org     Looking Forward...ml

Updates on the solid wood market in Canada and the US provided by Keta Kosman, publisher and editor of Madison’s Lumber Reporter. Madison’s is a North American lumber and panel commodity price guide and market analysis newsletter, which has been published every Friday out of Vancouver, BC since 1952.

April Lumber Market Analysis By Keta Kosman Publisher, Madison's Lumber Reporter April 28, 2014

For most of April the winter bleahs continued as North American lumber and panel traders worked through ongoing severe transportation problems. Infrastructure delays and supply chain issues kept the business of buying and selling solid wood products muted. Frustration mounted, especially at the producer level, that the normal seasonal spring lumber buy has yet to materialize this year.

of April in Kelowna, BC, Patricia Mohr, Vice President and Commodity Market Specialist at ScotiaBank, forecast an average US$390 mfbm in 2014 and $400 next year on WSPF 2x4s. So far this year the average for that item is $380. For panel her projection was $250 msf in 2014 and $330 next year for OSB 7/16 Central. So far this year that commodity has ranged in the $225 range.

Most players in the lumber market acknowledge that continued constraints on credit, both for US home buyers and for North American corporations, was contributing to a general sentiment of caution. So many of the forest sector companies Prices dipped mid-month as reloads and wholesale yards still struggled with which have closed during the downturn made errors of stocking stable rail-car, or even truck, availability. Before the month closed however, on inventory at the wrong time and paid a heavy price later. prices were moving back up. Until there is a reason to increase lumber inventory — if It was mostly sentiment which lowered prices. Baseless rumours of a sawmill order files stretched to four weeks for example — supposed potential spike in Canadian lumber exports to the US had buyers in customers will continue the now long-held practice of just-inthat country cautious of increasing inventories. Inquiry to sawmills was brisk, time buying. if downbeat. Sellers reported frequent calls but little commitment until the end of each day as customers hoped prices would push down even further. Booking actual orders was akin to pulling teeth, said some traders.

all projects have all the prints, notes, e-mails, change requests, assigned task records and scheduling for every department for quick access. Make sure this system has automated reminders and alerts of any pending or past due tasks so people do not have to waste their time looking for them. Make sure that each of the schedules is linked with user-defined dependencies to other schedules. Holding up a work order in the design phase affects production and delivery, and the schedules should reflect this. Make sure every schedule shows the capacity and loading of any group, person, and separate workstations. Have all the e-mails coming and going from your MS OutlookÂŽ automatically linked to the projects. And you do not want to forget that your customers should be able to communicate easily by letting them view and update their own W.O. information. Also, the user rights settings because you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want any unauthorized person looking at anything they should not. And because it is Internet-based, everyone can access everything about any project from any Internet browser-capable tablet, cell phone, or computer. There are other things to make sure you include in this all-inone Internet-based communication system. Make sure you are able to create your own user interface screens so it is drop-dead easy to use. An example would be the sales team having their own user input with default information, drop-down menus, and simple point-and-click options. Any required information on any of the screens should not allow the user to access the next menu. I have heard that some salespeople do not always take the time to fill in all the required information for every project. ;-) Where do you find an Internet-based communication system like this?

1st. Develop your own â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Costly and long development process. It is never as easy as your IT people claim. This is a 1- to 2-year process of coding and scabbing different software together to get something workable; but never is completely right, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awkward to use and never delivers on all the features. 2nd. Truss plate vendor offer â&#x20AC;&#x201C;How can I describe this properly? I will simply say they are full of B.S. Why do you expect your expert truss plate vendor to be an expert communication software developer? They are not, and what they offer pales in comparison to what you should have. Being able to access a W.O. management application and a limited scheduler via your smartphone does not come close to everything I spoke about. Remember the linking of all the MS OutlookÂŽ e-mails, any type of multiple files and notes? What about automated reminders and alerts? Linking of different schedules with user defined dependencies? Customized idiot-proof UI screens? Allowing customers to view their own W.O. information and upload their files? No, they cannot come close to what I am describing. 3rd. Implement a ready-made, fully customizable, used already in many industries, which includes the wood truss industry, all-in-one Internet-based communication system. Be up and running within 1 week with onsite setup and training. Normal gain per design and salesperson is at least one hour every day, and that is no B.S. This application is called AppWright. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true I get a referral fee if any of you sign up for this application. For less than you pay for a cell phone, most users gain an hour or more per day. Instead of hiring more staff, implement a proven productivity enhancement system in your office. You have been willing to invest in expensive productivity automation in your manufacturing, but now your entire office and field personnel will benefit. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just take my word for it; take a look at a major component company case study at http://todd-drummond.com/support-files/BFS_Case_Study.pdf.
