Abstract

Last Planner System has through the sounding process increased the reliability of the schedule. The sound activities are moved to a buffer and afterwards selected to the Weekly Work Plans to match capacity. Therefore, in order to maximise productivity it is essential to ensure that the sounding process proceeds in a pace which ensures that enough activities are made ready to the Weekly Work Plans. Experiences from case studies are included. It is observed that site-mangers tend to either include at risk activities or to adjust the manning in order to mach work with capacity. Several different solutions to the problem are suggested and discussed. It is proposed to simplify the production by decreasing the number of trades and tasks completed at site. This can be achieved by increasing
