WEBINAR: Introduction to the Last Planner System® @ webinar
Dec 6 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm

In this webinar we will cover introductory level information to give attendees an understanding of the Last Planner System® for Construction, how each element of LPS® is implemented by a project team, and how all elements work together to provide a complete framework for a team based collaborative production management and continuous improvement system.  The webinar is intended for individuals who have some basic understanding of Lean construction principles and who would like to learn more specifically about the Last Planner System® and the pull planning process.

The Last Planner System®, one of the hallmark collaborative planning tools supporting Lean design/construction projects, has been shown to streamline the collaborative scheduling process, increase plan reliability and productivity throughout multiple disciplines, and provide a common platform for continuous improvement of the planning process. Understanding of the Last Planner System® is invaluable to firms and individuals progressing on their Lean journey.

Dec 13 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Staying within the allowable budget and ensuring the team’s innovation decreases waste and increases value to the customer are attributes of successful project delivery and can be achieved through Target Value Delivery (TVD). TVD is a disciplined management practice with several phases (Business Case Planning, Validation, Value Delivery and Value Post Construction) meant to be applied holistically to obtain maximum value. The phases of TVD can be supplemented by core components like team organization, Big Room, project planning, cost modeling, continuous estimating and conceptual design. Take the first step in your journey towards mastering each of the TVD phases and all of the core components in this 90-minute webinar.


Learning Objectives:
•     Describe attributes of a team culture required to support TVD
•     Understand how to align project deliverables with customer-defined value
•     Define the major phases in the TVD process and how they relate
