Lean Project Delivery Bootcamp

Vancouver Regional Construction Association
Join us for a highly interactive workshop (including case-studies and simulations!) that introduces Lean project fundamentals and practices. We’ll cover the process and requirements of the Last Planner® System (LP®S), and you’ll learn how to improve productivity and deliver high value in less time, at lower cost, with reduced risk. By then end of this workshop you’ll be able to:
  • Define different types of variation in the design & construction process
  • Explain & distinguish the concepts of throughput, cycle time and work in progress
  • Describe the role of variation in production operations
  • Identify sources of waste in construction settings and corresponding mitigation techniques
  • Develop a Pull Plan
  • Track key metrics in Pull Plan execution
  • Appreciate the power of Team collaboration

Delivered with a supplemental 30-page guide, the Bootcamp workshop includes:
  • The Business Case for Lean Project Delivery
  • Introduction to Lean Principles and Practices
  • Learning to see and Eliminate Waste
  • Understanding of Flow and Variability through Hands-on Simulations
  • Introduction to the Last Planner® System through the Villego Simulation
  • Understanding the concept of Pull Planning
  • Hands-on Simulation

During the workshop, attendees will build Lego buildings. In the first round, we’ll be constructing our buildings based on traditional delivery methodologies and gaining a baseline on the team's planning and building capabilities. Next, we’ll learn the Last Planner® System and how it is used to plan and execute projects with collaboration, discipline and accountability. In a follow-up round, we’ll test the group’s newly acquired LP®S knowledge and measure the results.
