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.
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.
