WEBINAR: Introduction to the Last Planner System™ in Design @ webinar
Jun 14 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

In this webinar, Christian Pikel will present key topics and lessons for applying Last Planner System™ 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.

 

Learning Objectives\

At the end of this presentation, 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™ @ webinar
Jun 28 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 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.
