2018-06-14&15 Takt Planning Workshop

14 & 15 June 2018 in Berkeley, CA

P2SL, teamed up with vPlanner and Drees&Sommer, is delighted to offer a Takt Planning workshop in June at UC Berkeley. The workshop includes a hands-on simulation to learn about takt planning, its theoretical foundations, and how it can be applied in practice.

The P2SL workshop is offered for the fourth time in the United States and includes on Day 1 an Introduction to Takt Planning and on Day 2 Advanced Takt Planning.

Takt Overview

Takt Planning (TP) is a production planning method 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 Takt Planning.
  • Learn how to create Takt Plans and optimize flow.
  • Understand how Takt Planning can be implemented within the larger context of the Last PlannerTM System (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.
