The Last Planner System is a collaborative production system for one-off custom-made products, such as Planning and building a bridge. This allows project managers to significantly improve their productivity, as well as customer & user satisfaction. The Last Planner System connects people, systems & business processes. This allows project teams to leverage the experience and insights of all stakeholders to generate the greatest possible value (when generating a reasonable return for all stakeholders). In doing so, the LPS reduces waste and maximizes efficiency during all phases of the project, from project development to planning and construction. Starting with the first design and ending at the time of the project handover.
Overall process analysis
The overall process analysis (GPA) generates an overview of the value streams in the production process. The GPA defines and visualizes the processes in each project in a clear and understandable way. This creates a clear picture of the dependencies between the trades. The analysis is then used to gain a common understanding of the project with the participants and to achieve a collaborative attitude to the project. To do this, internal and external customer requirements are jointly defined in order to optimize the processes in this regard. The Last Planner System directly reveals possible risks and bottlenecks as well as opportunities and potential for improvement.
