Three-Level Method of Takt Planning and Takt Control – a New Approach for Designing Production Systems in Construction

  title={Three-Level Method of Takt Planning and Takt Control – a New Approach for Designing Production Systems in Construction},
  author={Janosch Dlouhy and Marco Binninger and Svenja Oprach and Shervin Haghsheno},
Due to the individualized design and construction of buildings, recurring processes are often not recognized. Because of this, potential improvements are not applied to future projects. With the use of Takt Planning and Takt Control, an effective method exists for identifying recurring processes and thereby adding stability to the construction process. Until now the focus has been on the optimization of the trade sequences during project execution whereby mostly one particular construction…

Short Takt Time in Construction – a Practical Study
A case study shows how this method was implemented on a construction site with no obvious repetition in the structure and compares the typical approach before the optimization with the results after the Takt Time integration.

A system and its results for creating a Lean culture, collaboration, transparency, planning and overall project control within a multitasking flow is described and validated.
Using Taktplanning and Taktcontrol in Production Projects – Comparsion of Construction and Equipment Phases
Takt Planning and Takt Control (TPTC) as a method for construction processes shows the potential for improving time aspects of construction sites in many practical examples. A first example of using
Technical Takt Planning and Takt Control in Construction.
This paper is the counterpart to the paper Collaborative Takt Time Planning of Non-Repetitive Work of Iris Tommelein. Both paper describe Takt approaches in two different geographical and project
Takt Planning in Apartment Building Renovation Projects
It is shown that adhering to a uniform production rate is challenging in apartment renovation projects, and what clarifications should be made into the existing takt production models in the context of apartment building renovation projects is defined.
Flow in Takted Projects – A Practical Analysis of Flow and Resource Efficiency
This research serves as a pilot study in this field and invites further detailed studies of the characteristics of flow to be conducted in the future and sets a standard for assessment of flow in takted projects in real-life practice.
Implementing Takt Planning and Takt Control Into Residential Construction
This study addresses the suitability of takt planning and takt control (TPTC) for the interior phase in residential construction projects. The purpose is to gain understanding on how to best

An overview of the various buffers in Takt planning is provided and how they can be used is described and how to use them is described.
Suggestions for takt production subcontract clauses – a conceptual study
Purpose This study aims to provide a foundation for the development of subcontracts that suit takt production in construction. Design/methodology/approach This is a non-empiric conceptual study,
How Does Takt Production Contribute to Trade Flow in Construction?
Takt production has gained increased attention over the past decade inside the Lean Construction community. Several case studies have shown that implementing takt has positive effects on construction


WIP Design in a Construction Project Using Takt Time Planning
Work in process (WIP) is a well understood and used metric in the management of manufacturing processes. However, this is not the case when it comes to production planning in non-repetitive
Takt Time Planning for Construction of Exterior Cladding
Takt time was used to drive installation of the exterior cladding system on a healthcare facility in Sacramento, California, and the traditional construction schedule of 11 months for partial completion of the exteriors was reduced to 5.5 months.
A Comparison of takt time and LBMS planning methods
The results indicate that takt time achieves substantially shorter schedules but the manhours required in work backlog areas are much higher than in LBMS approach.
Combining Value Stream and Process Levels Analysis for Continuous Flow Implementation in Construction
This research focuses on the use of concepts and tools of Lean Thinking seeking the implementation of continuous flow in construction. An exploratory case research approach was used in the work. Such
Improving Construction Work Flow – The Connective Role of Lookahead Planning
Lookahead planning is a fundamental process in the Last Planner system of production control, which encompasses four tiers of planning processes: master scheduling, phase scheduling, lookahead
What Kind of Production Is Construction
The need to develop lean thinking for dynamic construction is explained and the groundwork for a subsequent paper “Implementing Lean Construction” is laid, in which these strategies are further developed.
Learning by expanding: An activity-theoretical approach to developmental research
