This panel discussion will explore opportunities to manage construction execution by creating a performance-based strategy to align project performance with anticipated outcomes, thus creating the high-performing building. Using principles such as the simple framework as found in Integrating Project Delivery (Fischer, Ashcraft, Reed, Khanzode), production planning methods, lean principles, and integrated design, the discussion will explain strategy, practice, and the vision of future state. The panel will provide insight into the theory and opportunities for improving performance. Once the framework has been agreed upon, teams can operate a performance management system by defining the performance criteria and validating performance through data collection for specific and measurable metrics. There will be system alignment throughout the project lifecycle in a collaborative environment to provide transparent and powerful information to the team for optimized performance.
- Discuss and understand the value of creating an environment of performance
- Discuss and understand how lean and BIM support performance management
- Discuss and understand integrated information workflows
- Discuss and understand measuring success of high-performing teams
