The Last Planner System is a project delivery system that is based upon establishing highly collaborative teams, using a disciplined system to improve the flow of work on building projects. Unlike traditional projects where projects are planned from the top down, lean projects are planned and coordinated by the people doing the work.
The workshop includes training on Last Planner System, Pull Planning and production control including constraint log management, weekly work plans and PPC. The hands on training simulations utilize the Villego System. We will also Pull Plan of a phase of a project.
Registration will be limited to 30 persons with preference given to people that have already completed the Level 1 certification course.
Participants will learn that how the Last Planner System improves productivity and will be prepared to implement the system on projects.
Learn the Last Planner System
How to Collaborate as a Team
How Pull Planning enables the commitments and promised need for reliable work flow
In this one work shop, you will be trained on the Last Planner System, participate in hands on building simulations and plan a phase of a project using pull planning.
The workshop is for three teams of up to 10 people per team. Each team builds a lego project using traditional methods, learns about the Last Planner Systems an then tests there newly acquired knowledge to see if they perform better.
1. In the first round we baseline our team's planning and building capabilities.
2. Next we learn the Last Planner System and how it is used to plan and execute projects with collaboration, discipline and accountability.
3. Then we test our newly acquired knowledge and measure the results. How much better does the team perform? A great hands on experience!
4. Finally we plan a phase to practice with the newly acquired skill.
This work shop will help prepare you to implement LPD on projects and to become certified as a Project Coordinator.
