Let me tell you a little story before I come back and respond to your post. Many years ago I had a production job in a factory. It was a very bad job but the pay was great. I was making $4.75/ hour which was more than a lot of college professors were making at the time. Nobody told me it was the toughest job in the plant and I didn't have time to notice really. Every day I'd get a 20 minute break in the morning and when I came back the highly experienced spell man would always be backed up about thirty pieces. I didn't have time to catch up because the line ran too fact. Men weren't allowed to throw scrap in the scrap chute without an OK but but every day I'd take the thirty perfectly good product and toss it in the scrap chute. They knew I was doing it but they also wanted the line to run at my top speed so they never said a word. The semi-finished product I was tossing was simply in the way. It took time to work around it and there was no time. If I tried to save it then I'd have bogged down and the line would stop.
There are two factors. One is filling the pipeline. This is running material until every job station has adequate product to work, and then there is stockpiling. I'm a big fan of stockpiling in industry but you stock raw material and finished product, NOT semi-finished product. It's just in the way of smooth operation and does no good at all in most occupations. It exposes workers to inefficiencies and injuries and it is exposed to damage and various degradation which will cause poor quality product. Semi-finished product has to be moved around and when it is normal operations must cease.
Building these pyramids was essentially in industrial process meaning they used industrial methods which must include redundancies in equipment, smooth flow of operation, and robust equipment design so that operators can adjust to changes and inexactness in weights and other various measurements. They necessarily had scheduled maintenance meaning down days and days off for most of the workers. They had the means to provide food, hydration, spellmen, tools, equipment, elbow room, and hygiene for every single worker. The work flowed naturally.
