OU Medical Center Adults Patient Tower Gemba Walk – (Oklahoma CoP) @ OUMC Adult Patient Tower Project, Medic Trailer
Jan 24 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

This Gemba Walk will give us a look at the largest hospital addition project in Oklahoma history, an addition to the OU Medicine campus, with 32 state-of-the-art operating rooms and 144 patient rooms. We’ll look at the project’s use of Last Planner, including current current efforts to pivot from the single-track structural phase to the spread of 400 people working on the facade and interior finish out (a common challenge for users of the Last Planner scheduling system). Turner and trade partners are working on the 8-story $364M addition, the first ground-up project for OUMC since 1975, and Oklahoma’s only Level 1 Trauma Center.

Speaker:
Chris Davis – Turner Construction –  Chris is the Lean Quality Manager for the project. 

 Attendance is free of charge. (Registration Required)

OKC Lean Brew – The Lean Builder: A Builder’s Guide to Applying Lean Tools in the Field (Oklahoma CoP) @ Bricktown Brewery
Feb 6 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The authors Joe Donarumo and Keyan Zandy will be speaking about their recent book.

The Lean Builder is the story of a firm’s adoption of Lean concepts typically initiates at the top of the org chart, via the executive leadership team’s buy-in, and then filters down into the field where the front-line practitioners do the tangible work of construction. In the face of pressing project deadlines and heavily competing priorities, this information can feel intimidating, overwhelming, and easy to ignore in favor of what’s already known and comfortable. Often, the value of Lean practices are inarticulately or ineffectively conveyed, and superintendents can find it difficult to connect the dots from academic, theoretical Lean philosophies to the immediate relevancy in their daily work. Recognizing the importance for field personnel’s holistic understanding of Lean’s benefits – starting with WHY and ending with HOW – we seek to provide a true bottom-up version of “Builder’s Lean” that allows Last Planners to make immediate changes and transform their projects.

A Blueprint for Builder’s Lean speaks directly to the “boots on the ground,” simplifying and clearly articulating the benefits of six primary Lean concepts, and delivering them in a highly-relatable, immediately-applicable, and field-friendly manner. Attendees will walk away with an easy-to-follow blueprint and implementation plan to lead their team and dramatically improve their project delivery process through the following principles:

#1 – Daily Huddles
#2 – Visual Communication
#3 – Constraint Management
#4 – Pull Planning
#5 – Last Planner System and Look-Ahead
#6 – Root Cause Analysis through Percent Plan Complete (PPC)

A Blueprint for Builder’s Lean illustrates the immediate value and provides a how-to guide specifically for field personnel that will allow them to begin making meaningful changes in their teams and on their projects. 

Speakers:

Joe Donarumo – Linbeck – Joe serves as Senior Superintendent for Linbeck in Fort Worth, TX, where he has been able to develop and lead high-performing field teams across multiple healthcare projects. Joe has a unique passion for Lean implementation, continuous improvement, and a ruthless pursuit of waste elimination within his projects and organization. Joe lives in Aledo, TX with his wife Tasha, their three sons, Karsten, Kaiser, and Knox, and their daughter, Krosby.

Keyan Zandy – Skiles Group – Keyan is a longtime Lean practitioner, enthusiast, and advocate. As Skiles Group’s COO, he has a dual focus on client service and on nurturing a progressive company culture. He is ultimately responsible for the oversight of the firm’s daily operations and ensuring that their Lean processes are continuously improved and consistently practiced. Keyan lives in Richardson, TX, with his wife, Tere, and their two sons, Marshall and Calvin.”

WEBINAR: Introduction to Takt Time Production Planning
Feb 7 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

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.

WEBINAR: How to Contract using Lean without an IPD Contract: the ConsensusDocs 305 Standard Lean Construction Addendum
Feb 27 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

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.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Gain an overview of the ConsensusDocs 305 Lean Addendum
  • Learn Lean project fundamentals that you can incorporate in your project’s contracts
  • Understand how to implement Lean practices and Lean culture when an Owner’s constraints preclude use of an IPD contract. 

Presenters:

Joseph Cleves, Partner – Taft Law

Joel Darrington, Contracting Counsel – DPR Construction

Brian Perlberg, Executive Director, Senior Counsel – ConsensusDocs

Tom Richert, Principal – Lean Project Consulting, Inc.
