This guide is the result of a collaborative writing process between five IPD subject-matter experts that made up the guide’s core team. Much of the content found in this guide derived from the conversations that took place at the IPD Advisory Council workshop on May 2, 2017.
Lean Construction planning and control techniques reduce waste by improving work flow reliability. The starting point is improving the reliability of assignments at the crew level. This is in contrast to current management approaches that rely on project-level plans to manage contracts instead of managing work. Lacking a predictable work flow, design squads, field crews, or similar production units must adopt a strategy of flexibility to keep busy. Using this workbook you will gain a new perspective on what it means to plan a job. You will develop a better understanding of the impact variability has on downstream performance, and you will learn how the Last Planner System® can shield work groups from uncertainty and thereby improve performance of the production unit as well as overall system throughput.
Learn from industry thought leaders in program and construction management, and law who contributed ideas, criticism and original content to create this IPD Guide developed by CMAA.
