LCI Lean Learning Series / Exploring the 8 Wastes (Central Indiana CoP) @ arcDesign
Jan 29 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

This topic focuses on the 8 Wastes as relevant to the design and construction industry.

 Participants will learn the definition of waste and descriptions of each of the 8 Wastes with examples for further exploration.  Learning will include a before and after waste walk video example.

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. 

SPEAKER:

Andrea Sponsel – BSA LifeStructures –  Andrea is the Director of Lean Strategy and Change Management at BSA LifeStructures. She began her lean journey nearly nine years ago, and was immediately immersed in the philosophy of improving what we do every day, and eliminating waste to create value. Since then, her passion has been teaching the technical side and people side of change to others at BSA, promoting a more inclusive and efficient delivery of design. She is also part of the Core Group for the Central Indiana CoP.

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

Lean design and construction methods have emerged as one of the most significant developments to improve value, efficiency, and relationships in the design and construction industry.
