Leveraging Your Supply Chain for Business and Project Success

Recognizing that the Supply Chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Learn how an Owner, Architect, Builder and Trade Partner are approaching their supply chains to drive business and project success and to fix what is commonly considered a broken element of the Construction Industry.

Please join us to hear a well-rounded panel, including an owner (Sutter), architect (HGA), general contractor (Boldt) and trade partner (Southland), talk about how they manage their supply chain relationships by sharing breakdowns, seeking to understand their partners’ business drivers and collaborating to meet the demands of highly integrated workflow. Attendees will learn how:
• Sutter uses The Last Planner System® to gain visibility of the real hinderances to successful project execution. Shurid will specifically highlight the learnings from the impact of late information or changes, particularly from Medical Equipment vendors, have on upstream and downstream partners.
• HGA manages the needs of their design and build partners to ensure that all concerns and demands are met and incorporated into a constructible set of documents.
• Boldt acts as a facilitator for “The entire Supply Chain” to ensure success by driving deeper into the Supply Chain. Klas will share how they are educating and coaching team members in production planning, prefabrication thinking, and collaborative behaviors to increase schedule and budget reliability.
• Southland manages and influences its relationships in the Supply Chain to solve industry challenges. Henry will highlight their efforts with the local Unions to mitigate the impact of labor shortages and local hire ordinances and with vendor deliveries to reduce the impact on projects as production system.
