LCI Colorado Community of Practice

1.0  Who

Our LCI Colorado (CO) Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of lean practitioners at various levels of practice, who are committed to:

  • Helping the AEC industry supply chain in Colorado make a new way of doing business, the “new common sense” way.
  • Enabling the AEC industry supply chain learn rapidly and continue to improve the value delivered to customers of capital projects, as well as the value to all who use the facility in the future.

2.0  Why

  • We believe that deep application of lean principles improves the definition of needs, design, construction, and operation of capital facilities.
  • We also believe that application of lean principles to run the day-to-day operation of any organization improves the ability of the organization and its employees to deliver better services to their customers.

3.0  How

  • Borrowing from the technique advocated in integrated forms of agreement, we have a broadly representative Core Group (CG) within our CoP to ensure our CoP activities and events will benefit the mission of LCI, appeal to a broader OAC audience, and add value for those who attend.
  • To apply lean principles effectively, we must have conversations that include all members of the OAC community.
  • We have discovered that holding meetings to share what we have learned with representatives of the Owner, Designer, Contractor and Trade supply chain in Colorado accelerates the benefits to the people and the projects in that region.
  • As lean practices continue to improve within our CoP, these too are shared to advance the benefits to companies and projects.
  • Ultimately, our CoP accelerates and expands improvements to facilities, projects and companies in it’s geographic area.

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. Design and construction contracts provide both a potential obstacle and opportunity to incorporating Lean tools and developing a Lean culture for your next construction project. Learn how you can use the ConsensusDocs 305 Lean Addendum to facilitate a Lean project without an integrated project delivery (IPD) contract. Getting your contracts right to encourage Lean is difficult. Now there is an industry contract standard form to help.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an overview of the ConsensusDocs 305 Lean Addendum
  • Learn Lean project fundamentals that you can incorporate in your project’s contracts
  • Understand how to implement Lean practices and Lean culture when an Owner’s constraints preclude use of an IPD contract. 

Presenters:

Joseph Cleves, Partner – Taft Law

Joel Darrington, Contracting Counsel – DPR Construction

Brian Perlberg, Executive Director, Senior Counsel – ConsensusDocs

Tom Richert, Principal – Lean Project Consulting, Inc.
