We welcome you to the home page of the Lean Construction Institute, Ohio Valley Community of Practice (CoP). We are dedicated to helping transform the design and construction industry, and offer the following to our community:
Whether you are just beginning your Lean journey or are a veteran Lean practitioner, you are welcome to join our community. Please contact Annmarie Thurnquist email@example.com for more information.
This year, we will alternate between the Lean Learning Series and Lean Coffees each month. The Learning Series is a good opportunity to invite someone who is starting their Lean journey to join us as we work through some of the big topics of Lean construction.
We will start our Lean Learning Series presentations with “What is Lean?”
What is Lean?
This topic introduces Lean Project Delivery as relevant to the design and construction industry, compares conventional delivery with Lean delivery outcomes and describes the goals and benefits of Lean. Participants will learn the key principles that are foundational to Lean as the LCI 6 Tenets of Lean in detail.
The LCI Lean Learning Series is a facilitated discussion-oriented event focused on a specific Lean subject matter. The event is more structured than a Lean Coffee yet shorter and less structured than a LCI education course. Its purpose is to provide just enough knowledge base to kick start an engaging Lean discussion amongst the participants.

Procter & Gamble recently decided to embrace the full Lean IPD process at their new West Virginia manufacturing plant. Attendees will learn the importance of selecting the right partners, creating the right culture and behaviors, and implementing the right processes and tools to meet or exceed expectations. The same IFOA partners were used for multiple IFOA projects, allowing the team to learn, grow, and innovate together from one project to the next, leading to improved project outcomes.

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.
