Presentation abstract: Lean is the new fat and is taking the construction industry by storm. Lean construction, adapted from principles of the popular lean manufacturing industry, is currently creating a lot of buzz. A practical and useful tool within the lean construction tool box is the Last Planner System® (LPS). Jarrett Construction incorporated LPS into its everyday life recently. In the process, its people, as well as its subcontractors and suppliers, have had to open themselves up to a complete paradigm shift from how it has managed projects for the last 20 years. Listen and learn as Jarrett shares about his company's experience.
