L'optimisation de la gestion de chantier : le cas de l'entreprise J Richard Paysage

Abstract : With an increasing demand by society for improved lifestyle quality and more parkland in urban zones, the number of landscaping companies has increased by 135% within the past 10 years. Even though the global income of the sector has recovered a positive trend (+5.5% between 2010 and 2012), the income average per employee has decreased by more than 10% in the last 6 years. These figures highlight the economic difficulties of the landscaping sector. In this context, the purpose of my internship at J Richard Paysage in Orléans (a 65 wages earning company), was to define improvement proposals for site management in order to ensure to ensure the profitability of the company. First of all, I needed to become familiar with the company and its environment. Secondly, I drafted a comprehensive description of the company’s operating processes; this part underlines the strengths and weaknesses of the firm. Finally I describe five proposals that use different tools in order to render landscaping site management more efficient: a complete, accurate and detailed landscaping site planning document, a formalized process for order management, a daily schedule that includes equipment preparation and employees’ motivation, optimized cost management and invoicing processes that enable easy financial analysis, on-site supervision and follow-up, with a global evaluation at the end of the work. These proposals ensure that all aspects of landscaping site management are taken into account, fully and accurately, thus maximizing profitability, requiring however the implication of all employees, at all levels of the organization.
