Takt Time Planning is a powerful Lean Construction method for production planning and control. Using Takt Time, construction teams are able to more efficiently plan their work and execute it. Teams that applied Takt Time have been able to significantly reduce the project duration while increasing the quality of the finished work. Furthermore, they were able to more accurately forecast schedule and labor demands leading to more efficient labor utilization and labor productivity. This webinar will present Takt Time Planning for beginners. The goal of this webinar is to present:
- What is Takt Time Planning?
- How does Takt Time Planning Work?
- How to get started with Takt Time Planning?
- Results from a Case Study that applied Takt Time for the first time
This webinar is geared towards construction professionals (particularly contractors) who have been applying Lean Construction methods such as the Last Planner System. Takt is often used with the LPS to improve the reliability of the work on-site. No knowledge of Takt Time is needed and we will present a case study of a team that applied Takt Time for the very first time. This will give you the knowledge, understanding, and confidence to apply this concept on your own project.
