On every project, Skanska aims to drive value for customers. Our national expertise in lean principles and methods encourages creative, collaborative thinking among employees, and promotes a continuous effort to eliminate waste throughout our operations. A founding member of the Lean Construction Institute, Skanska has applied lean approaches in many construction sectors focused on helping clients realize their visions. At the project level and specific to pull planning, Skanska continues to evolve from executing pull plans to fully implementing the Last Planner System. The intent of this session is to share some better practices for managing pull plans, and also to demonstrate how the firm is using BIM 360 Plan software to do so.
- Discover better practices to structure and prepare for a pull plan
- Discover tactics to get superintendents and subcontractor foremen engaged in the discussion
- Learn how to translate the sticky note pull plan into BIM 360 Plan
- Learn how to run reports and metrics from BIM 360 Plan
