WINTAKE® is a proprietary digitized take-off (estimating) system for the industrial marketplace. The system is integrated with Planning/Scheduling, Project Controls and Job Cost. Key benefits include quicker and more accurate estimates at the lowest level of project detail for all disciplines (Pipe, Steel, Civil, E&I). All of the disciplines have a similar look and feel, and data may be input via keyboard, mouse, or a digitizer pad.
The Civil module of WinTake enables an estimator to standardize the input/output of data and provide a more accurate and timely Civil estimate. As an example of its many features, with a minimal number of entries and no user calculations, the application will make the following calculations: Cubic Yards of Excavation, Square Feet of Shoring, Square Feet of Forming, Cubic Yards of Concrete, Square Feet of Rubbing, Square Feet of Finishing, Cubic Feet of Grout, Cubic Yards of Spoil, Cubic Yards of Backfill, Square Feet of Fine Grade and Pounds of Rebar.
The Steel module of WinTake assists the estimator in producing a Steel estimate faster and more accurate. Some of the features of the Steel program include: On screen filtering, sorting, and summarization of the take-off line items, fields for Piece Mark, Category, Area, and Elevation information, and drop-down entry and duplication boxes to avoid re-keying duplicate information.
Electrical & Instrumentation
The Electrical and Instrumentation module of WinTake provides a corporate-wide standard for E&I estimating. This module is driven by abbreviation, and it details information on systems, areas, and materials. User defined modules in conjunction with an automated take-off method for fittings per linear foot of conduit, allows the estimator to increase detail without compromising speed. The increased detail and history will provide for more accurate and cost efficient estimates for our clients.
The Pipe module of WinTake provides the means to prepare a quick and accurate estimate for a piping estimate. Both labor and material are entered into the system by industry standard and custom abbreviations while calculating cost of material and labor without user intervention. Detail reports are provided to order material and bidding purposes.
WinTEAMS® is a proprietary estimating system designed specifically for the industrial marketplace. The system is integrated with Planning/Scheduling and Project Controls. Key benefits include detail accurate estimates of different types of equipment, such as Exchangers, Towers, Drums, etc. It is designed to quickly estimate these types of equipment for the Turnaround and Maintenance environments.

Personnel Logistics System
CraftTrax® is a web application designed to accelerate the hiring/rehiring process and give a comprehensive real-time view into each craftsperson’s status. It was developed to strengthen communications between multiple personnel offices and jobsites. CraftTrax gives management real-time data by job or geographical office location. By providing management immediate and accurate job status, this information can be presented to clients with the comprehensive information to plan for current workforce challenges.
CraftTrax addresses staffing bottlenecks of a tight labor market. This gives us the ability to select from more than 180,000 skilled craft personnel to supply to our jobsites in a timely manner. One potential client from a major refinery stated: “All construction vendors say they have a proprietary tool to manage their personnel database…but you guys are the first to show us.” Numerous clients have made similar statements and CraftTrax has assisted us in managing labor requirements for projects that ranged in manpower size from just a few to several thousand people.
Major benefits of the system are centralization of information and reduction of phone calls. Personnel offices can view and assist in filling staffing needs from any location and jobsites can check the progress of labor requests on demand.
Additional benefits include processing previous employees for rehire. This process was accelerated by adding the ability to auto-populate forms for review and signing, therefore expediting their arrival to the jobsite.
Project Control Systems
WinPCS® is an award winning system that is part of a field execution methodology that ensures every task on the Turnaround and/or Construction project is tracked on a shift by shift basis. This tool has a proven track record and provides a physical percent complete and productivity measurements giving us a definitive advantage over the competition.
The basic functionality of WinPCS interfaces the actual direct labor work hours and dollars expended to the actual field progress work tasks for a given window of time. WinPCS easily tracks the following on a time now basis:
Project percent complete.
Work hour and dollar efficiencies.
Actual -vs.- budget comparisons.
WinPCS focuses on direct labor management techniques because it is the most volatile resource, and must be controlled if the project is to be successful. The amount of required materials to complete a project is definite and measurable, but the direct labor efficiency swings in direct proportion to the applied management techniques.
MAPS® (Maintenance Applied Productivity System) is a plant improvement system developed with a graphical user interface technology providing an innovative method of measuring work performance by integrating productivity (actual time worked) versus efficiency (expended vs. budgeted hours). This system ensures we are delivering the most value to our maintenance clientele.
Why was MAPS developed?
To Track Productivity and Efficiency in the Maintenance Arena
To Ensure That We Are Providing Our Maintenance Customers With The Most Cost-Effective Labor Services
What does MAPS do?
Provides On-going Workforce Productivity Data
Highlights Areas of Non-Productive Time So That Root Cause Can Be Identified and Addressed
Provides Work Order Efficiency Based On “Earned” Man-Hours
Provides Management With Tool to Maintain High Efficiency and Productivity
Work Order Efficiency
Efficiency Data Indicates Effectiveness of:
Leadership Skills in Field Supervision
Project Management/Job Cost System
This management tool allows Project Managers to monitor daily cost and maintain control of labor, material, sub-contracting, small tool and equipment expenditures. Project Managers have the ability to summarize information by discipline and than as needed “drill down” to the lowest level of transaction detail to manage project cost. This entire system is fully integrated with the other proprietary systems.
Small Tools System
This is an inventory barcoding system designed to help us efficiently keep track of our tool inventories, costs, and transactions from the job sites to the warehouses to central purchasing. The pen-based and laser scanning barcoding capabilities make this system easy to use. This system strengthens client partnerships/alliances, reduces unnecessary tool purchases, optimizes tool inventory, increases productivity and cash flow and provides Turner Industries with a competitive advantage.
Quality Control Systems
WeldTracker® is used in the tracking of pipe and plate welding on projects – both construction and maintenance.The system is based around a weld log and associated tables that cover welders, weld procedures and pipe specifications. These combine to form a broad source of information on weld status, welder productivity, NDE frequency, etc. to supply site superintendents, managers and Quality Control inspectors with “decision making” data.
Weld information can be viewed and reported in a number of ways which include queries by project, drawing, line number, specification, area, test system, weld number, and status of completion.
The system is designed to check welding procedures and qualifications of each welder by job pipe specifications. This allows each welder’s continuity, production, and efficiency to be tracked daily, weekly, or for the entire job. The overall project may be tracked either by total job or subproject. Projections can be made displaying “time to complete” based on count of welds or by weld inch.
But, ultimately, WeldTracker is designed to provide a turnover document of completed welds while documenting all of the nondestructive examinations used.
Turner Industries provides system integrated solution for client projects. We have developed system interfaces with client systems across numerous platforms from mainframe to client server technology resulting in mutual cost savings.
Turner Industries has developed timekeeping system interfaces with numerous client gatelog systems. In addition, we have a mobile gatelog system setup for large Turnarounds and Construction projects.
