A Study and Application of Lean Construction Techniques Using Last Planner Concept in Residential Building
Mr. J. Rajprasad,  Shuaibu Saminu,  Hari Babu S.A
This study intends to provide a better understanding of the Last Planner System (LPS) which is a Lean Construction concept by analyzing the various schedule systems involved in the concept. The Last Planner System (LPS) is a production control system for managing projects. It supplements or replaces a typical management system based on activities and a defined schedule produced by a project manager. The LPS produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This produces maximum value to the owner by eliminating waste caused by unpredictable workflow. Its use has enabled contractors to reduce the delivery time of a project and at the same time allowed specialty contractors to improve utilization of their resources. This paper focuses on implementing Last Planner System in residential construction by comparing the present scheduling techniques used in the industry. The data is collected through questionnaire survey. A total of 25 respondents are interviewed and the results are analyzed using the software Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The results indicated that the respondents are not familiar with the LPS concept. The residential contractors are presently following the Master Schedule method to track their projects. Previous usages of LPS in construction projects proved that the system helps to improve the schedule performance and to avert the possible mistakes. It was concluded that with effective training in the concepts of LPS, the builders can overcome schedule delay and can improve the standards of the projects.
