2018-04-09&10 Takt Planning Workshop

9 & 10 April 2018 in Berkeley, CA

P2SL, teamed up with vPlanner and Drees&Sommer, is delighted to offer two Takt Planning workshops in April this year.  One at P2SL (UC Berkeley – Clark Kerr Campus) and one in Boston.
  • The P2SL workshop is offered for the 2nd time in the United States and includes an introduction to Takt Planning on Day 1 and an advanced class on Day 2.  It is being offered in collaboration with vPlanner and Drees&Sommer.
  • The Boston event is a single day introduction to Takt Planning offered by vPlanner and Drees&Sommer.

Both workshops include a hands-on simulation to learn about takt planning, its theoretical foundations, and how it can be applied in practice.

Takt Overview

Takt Planning (TP) is a production planning technique that improves workflow reliability at the Phase Plan level when implementing the Last Planner® System (LPS). TP reduces variability by setting a predictable production rate for standard activities across right-sized geographic work areas. This disciplined production planning approach aligns not only the workflow at the site, but also the overall flow of materials and information through the supply chain starting in design and moving into detailing, fabrication and delivery processes required to support the execution of the Takt sequences.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the basic concepts of TP.
  • Learn how to create Takt Plans and optimize flow.
  • Understand how TP can be implemented within the larger context of the LPS.
  • Gain an understanding of when to best apply Takt Planning

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about lean project delivery and changes taking place in the industry!  Registered attendees include some of the industry’s leading production planners and change agents from various owner organizations, GCs and trade partners.
