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.

Target Value Delivery (Colorado CoP) @ AGC of Colorado
Dec 3 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 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.

 Start your journey towards mastering each of the TVD phases and all of the core components through simulation, group discussion and step-by-step guidance in the 8-hour Target Value Delivery education course to align your project deliverables with customer-defined value.

Program will begin at 8:00 AM

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.
