LCI Central Florida Community of Practice

Welcome to the Central Florida Community of Practice (CoP) website!  The CoP’s purpose is to educate our members on how to improve the productivity and efficiency of everything they do.  We advocate use of Lean principles and tools in all areas of business including the office, shops, vehicles, and at the jobsites.  Through programming and development, the Central Florida CoP helps our members learn and grasp Lean terms and techniques, having a positive impact on the culture change that needs to happen for Lean practices to be implemented.  We have created a Lean forum where you can learn how the Lean process organizes operations and supplies to make the most of available labor, space, and capital.

Lean is not a program that is ever finished; it becomes the culture of the company, therefore providing greater value to all of our customers.

Whether you are researching what Lean Construction is about, just starting your Lean Journey, or have been at it for years, we welcome you to join our upcoming events.  To become more involved in the Central Florida CoP, please contact Kevin Labrecque, Leader, at kevin.labrecque@sevansolutions.com.

Lean Coffee (Central Florida-ORLANDO CoP) @ RLF Architecture Engineering Interiors
Feb 19 @ 8:00 am – 9:30 am

Join us for a Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our Lean endeavors! Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and low-pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to our Lean community. We want to hear about the problems you are solving, the issues you want to solve, and lessons you’ve learned on your Lean Journey. No previous Lean experience is required.

Participants from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trades partners, and associations propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn – THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT DISCUSSION TOPICS! Each proposer takes 15 to 30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. Come as you are and be ready to learn. 

Attendance is free of charge. Registration Required

WEBINAR: Introduction to Takt Time Production Planning
Feb 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Takt planning has come into its own in the last few years. Companies including BMW, Sutter Health and Others have reported very positive results of implementing Takt planning. This webinar will introduce you to the basics of Takt Time production planning for construction.
Takt planning has been used in Manufacturing and is very straight-forward when used on a standard manufacturing with a fixed assembly line. While construction has a very different work flow, many of the same concepts apply to construction.
The value of Takt planning has been realized in combination with other Lean tools like the Last Planner System(R) and Lean Principles. Takt production planning is especially effective for project with repetitive spaces. Takt is German word (Taktzeit Cycle) for establishing the “beat” or rhythm of a process. In construction, various installation speeds disrupt flow and create waste. Creating a Takt plan and managing production plans that are location based is the central premise of Takt planning. Takt planning is used to synchronize the sequences and therefor the trade partners flow of work and to level the work and create a production plan and consistent rhythm of work, materials and information associate with conditions at specific locations.

WEBINAR: How to Contract using Lean without an IPD Contract: the ConsensusDocs 305 Standard Lean Construction Addendum
Feb 27 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
