As a contractor, making the step to deploying Lean for your production planning process is a major undertaking. And once you have made the transition to leveraging the Last Planner methodology to manage the tasks, commitments and dependencies during your planning meetings, you need an efficient way to capture, manage, visualize and collaborate against the data you collect. While spreadsheets and sticky notes are the current standard, cloud and mobile technology like BIM 360 Plan reduce the manual data entry process while automatically collecting and articulating productivity reports for process improvement.
Join us to learn how Autodesk BIM 360 Plan can help you better manage the production planning process by:
- Exposing critical short-term planning data to the entire project team
- Adding/updating tasks, dependencies and roadblocks in-real time and sharing with mobile users
- Reviewing PPC reporting metrics in aggregate to drive change and process improvements on future projects
