Come join the New York State Lean Construction Institute Community of Practice for a fun filled night of networking and learning. We will begin the evening by networking with drinks (cash bar) and appetizers (provided) follow by a presentation that was featured at the LCI National Congress in October of 2021. Following the presentation there will be a cash bar mixer for all attendees to continue networking. This event is limited to the first 50 people to sign up. Don’t wait around to register or you will miss out on the opportunity to spend this holiday evening networking and learning with your fellow NY State Lean Construction Practitioners!
Maximizing the Productivity of the Trades via Optimized Construction Flow (OCF):
Challenge your project execution strategy with OCF. You may be asking yourself……What is OCF? OCF stands for Optimized Construction Flow. It’s not only a methodology but it’s a way of “project execution” life. The 7 Principles of OCF include employing strategic integration and planning, target tactical planning, collaborative process, constraint management, maximizing pre-fabrication, controlling installation start, and ensuring installation flow. Our presenters based this approach on research presented at IGLC and executed with an overall mission to reduce cycle time by 50% on average without adding overtime or more resources. They had to develop an approach that challenged the entire supply chain of the project to ‘bow to the constraint’ of trade resources, while also meeting our lofty production demands. Planning is not the Key! It’s EVERYTHING…more importantly it’s the strategic planning BEFORE the pull planning. This means that well before the Last Planner’s attend their first pull plan the supply chain must prepare all the critical inputs to ensure their success. Trade Productivity is a primary focus of the OCF. One of the driving tenants is not just to improve the efficiency of the workflow and productivity but that overall project durations would be cut which would translate to increased PROFITS by using the core capabilities of our trade partners! Can you imagine more than 250 projects being OPTIMIZED to remove over 50% of the waste?
