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.

CANCELLED: LCI Lean Learning Series: Exploring the 8 Wastes (Central Florida – TAMPA CoP) @ Whiting-Turner Tampa Office
Apr 9 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm

The LCI Lean Learning Series is a facilitated discussion-oriented event focused on a specific Lean subject matter.  The event is more structured than a Lean Coffee yet shorter and less structured than a LCI education course.  Its purpose is to provide just enough knowledge base to kick start an engaging Lean discussion amongst the participants.

Matt Thomas of Whiting-Turner and Frank Coln of NV2A Group will lead the discussion designed to introduce people to the 8 deadly wastes that occur on project sites.  Attendees will gain insight on how to identify the deadly wastes, how they contribute to productivity loss, and how Lean management can help prevent these wastes from affecting project performance.

Coffee and snacks provided by Whiting-Turner

CANCELLED: LCI Education: Introduction to Lean Project Delivery (Central Florida – ORLANDO CoP) @ Limbach Engineering & Design Services
Apr 16 @ 12:00 pm – 5:30 pm

What if you could  add more value for your customers while meeting schedule and budget  requirements? By recognizing the various types of waste in project  delivery processes, you can start to increase productivity by  implementing the Lean approaches taught in Introduction to Lean Project  Delivery. With a small mindset shift, the silos set up by traditional  delivery methods can be broken to allow architects, engineers, general  contractors, trade partners and owners to closely collaborate and  problem solve together. This LCI education course will be an important  step on your journey to achieve Lean thinking.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define Lean and the Lean operating system’s principles
  • Identify principles and tools relevant to Lean design and construction processes
  • Recognize various types of waste and apply tools to reduce and/or eliminate waste
  • Increase collaboration and communication on projects through structured planning systems and processes

This workshop is intended to give newcomers a broad awareness of vocabulary, fundamental principals and basic practices of lean project delivery. This can serve as a frame work for learning how to apply lean thinking and methods to deliver significantly greater value on your projects and within your organization.

This course is registered with AIA CES for 5 LU credits.

Lunch, refreshments and snacks will be provided.

WEBINAR: Introduction to the Last Planner System® in Design
May 8 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

In this webinar, Christian Pikel will present key topics and lessons for applying Last Planner System® (LPS®) based production planning to the design phase of a project. Participants will learn why it is important to break down traditional large design document set deliverables into a map of information hand-offs and to view question resolution as milestones.
As a shortened primer version of the full Last Planner® in Design workshop, this webinar will introduce participants to the concepts of collaborative design planning and how LPS® principles are adapted for the design phase vs the construction phase and supported by concepts and tools such as scrum and Kanban.
Attendees should have a working understanding of Last Planner System® as applied in construction.

Attendees will learn:
• How the principles of Last Planner System® can be applied to the Design/Development phases of a project.
• How elements of Agile Management and Scrum Framework that combine productively with LPS® in Design Management.
• How successful application of these frameworks and principles can reduce design rework and improve collaboration.
• How metrics can be utilized for team feedback.
• The importance of collaborative plan development and on-going planning conversations in a ‘time-box’ structure.

WEBINAR: Introduction to the Last Planner System®
May 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 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.

WEBINAR: Principles of Target Value Delivery (TVD)
Jun 5 @ 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

WEBINAR: Recognizing and Eliminating the 8 Wastes
Jun 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Looking to improve your project outcomes? Studies have shown that up to 70-80% of activities performed in design and construction are waste or considered non-value added. We need to learn to see waste in order to reduce waste. This webinar will help participants see waste and will provide creative ways to start to reduce waste and add more value to our projects.
