LCI Michigan Community of Practice

Welcome to the Michigan Community of Practice (CoP) website! The LCI Michigan Community of Practice is forming to create an environment where owners, designers, contractors, suppliers, academics and industry organizations can connect, share, learn, and explore Lean principles and processes. Our CoP is a group of Lean practitioners and enthusiasts at various levels of experience and a wide range of expertise with a common interest around improving our industry and the delivery of value to our Owners and community.

The best way to get involved is to come to our Lean Coffee events. A Lean Coffee is an open forum where participants can ask any type of question about Lean and there is open discussion between their peers on that question. There is no cost, all are welcome, and no previous lean experience is necessary. Please send an email with your complete contact information to LCIMichiganCoP@gmail.com to introduce yourself and get on the mailing list.

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.

The phases of TVD can be supplemented by core components like team organization, Big Room, project planning, cost modeling, continuous estimating and conceptual design. Take the first step in your journey towards mastering each of the TVD phases and all of the core components in this 90-minute webinar.
