Lean Production Control for Construction

posted in: News | 0

Delivering projects 30% quicker, 20% more efficiently & 30% more productively.

To help a major water utility company meet the tough delivery performance targets set by OFWAT for the AMP6 phase of works, TBI Ltd worked closely with the Client and it’s framework partners (designers, consultants, engineers and contractors) to develop a standard approach to Production Control which now forms a key element of the client’s Factory Thinking strategy.

Lean collaborative planning was used as the basis for the Production Control process which focused all parties on developing competitive target delivery programmes and then establishing short-term planning & control to ensure continued focus on timely works delivery.  TBI created a standard suite of support materials and trained all parties to operate this lean collaborative approach for projects.

Early results indicate, reductions in programme duration, predictability of planned activities raising to over 70%, improved efficiency in pre-construction and construction, better teamwork and communications.
