Measuring project's team culture in projects using the last planner system

The construction industry is known for bad project performance and a culture characterized by adversarial behaviours. The Last Planner System (LPS) is designed to improve these circumstances through the enhancement of workflow reliability by involving various disciplines in joint planning processes and a culture of...

Conceptual foundations for a new lean BIM-based production system in construction

To prove whether productivity deficiencies in construction can be improved, a new lean BIM-based production system is designed to assess the hypothesis that a true integration of BIM functionalities with the Last Planner System will contribute to a more efficient project delivery. This paper discusses...

The beauty of a phase-overlapping Last Planner System with incorporated Takt

This research concludes that the Last Planner System (LPS) aligns to the Toyota Production System (TPS) and its recognized management theory, which is a vehicle to integrate the minds + hands philosophy within projects from early design phase till handover. Our findings show that adopting...

The last planner system and building information modeling in construction execution

Many researchers have stated that lean and building information modeling (BIM) have positive synergies. This integrative literature review aims at exploring this body of knowledge within the scope of combinations of BIM and the Last Planner System, as an important Lean construction method, in the...

BIM-LEAN as a methodology to save execution costs in building construction

The most representative trends in the construction industry that enable improvements are both Building Information Modelling paradigm (BIM) and Lean Construction philosophy. However, there is a scarcity of works on the synergy of both paradigms. Therefore, this paper is focused on the benefits of both...

Reducing Variability of Workforce as a Tool to Improve Plan Reliability

Variability of flow is recognized as one of the greatest obstacles to production management. Since the work flow and labour flow are two dominators of work performance, it is important to manage them simultaneously. The objective of this paper is to examine if an increased...

Impacts of lean construction on safety systems: A system dynamics approach

Lean construction has been viewed as an effective management approach for reducing the occurrence of no-value or destructive activities, such as wasting resources and safety-related accidents. However, few studies have systematically addressed how and to what extent lean construction practices influence construction safety. To bridge...

Comparing point-to-point precedence relations and location-based management system in Last Planner System: A housing project of highly repetitive processes case study

A comprehensive production system is needed to enhance the flow operations during the works. In this context, the Last Planner System (LPS) is one of the Lean tools used more often in project management for construction, and in doing so, tries to offset the limitations...

Building a lean culture into an organization

The Indian construction industry is in need for a change; a change that can help its people and organizations discard the conventional project management approach of 'Command and control'; a change that can create better collaboration between project teams and reduce blame games. Lean construction...

Implementation of lean construction techniques for minimizing the risks effect on project construction time

The construction projects involve various risk factors which have various impacts on time objective that may lead to time-overrun. This study suggests and applies a new technique for minimizing risk factors effect on time using lean construction principles. The lean construction is implemented in this...
