The Last Planner® System (LPS™) using Villego Simulation

Last Planner is a short-term project planning system first used in engineering construction 20 years ago. It continues to create significant improvements in project & program safety, predictability, productivity, speed of delivery, profit and feelings of wellbeing among project staff. LPS offers a realistic way to collaboratively manage project-based production, enables issues to be identified and resolved before they become problems on-site and increases the chances that work will flow and projects be completed on time. It is a vital link between logistics and building assembly teams. That’s why more and more enterprises are making it part of their standard procedure for project delivery.
• Understand the “System View” of the LPS and the factors of production control
• Learn about constraint analysis as a critical part of LPS and its proactive approach to problem solving.
• Learn how to continuously improve as a team, remove waste and adjust performance based on what has been learned as a means to optimize workflows.
• Get hands on experience and learn from experts the correct way to perform (LPS)
