JTC Singapore strengthens its collaboration with Lean Station and recognises the benefits of Lean PlanDo in JTC developments


JTC strengthens its collaboration with Lean Station by publishing an article about Lean PlanDo’s unique aspect of enhancing collaboration in planning and management of projects and the various real benefits JTC has derived out from its usage in the projects.

The article enhances the values of Lean PlanDo of collective planning and commitment to achieve a Lean project delivery mechanism through its simple, effective features. The cloud and mobile based application is technically very advanced and is being upgraded to make it future proof with A.I. Algorithms.

Quoting from the published article:

By improving collaboration among all parties involved, Lean PlanDo has benefited a total of 11 JTC developments so far. “The LaunchPad @ Jurong Innovation District saw a cut in project delays from six months to four months, while the Addition & Alteration (A&A) works at Fusionopolis One @ one-north benefitted from an increase in planning reliability from 80% to 96% by improving coordination among stakeholders.”

“Stakeholders at all levels – including contractors on the ground – need to be involved in planning and implementation, and Lean PlanDo promotes this through an open and decentralised approach. This gives every individual greater ownership over tasks and in turn higher motivation to carry them out”, says Mr Alan Ong, Principal Project Manager at JTC’s Public Projects Division.

Lean Station has derived immense value in all these years of collaboration with JTC and has been able to create a product Lean PlanDo, rich with true value for digitalising and transforming the construction industry to be productive and profitable.

“In these years of collaboration with JTC around Lean PlanDo, we have benefited immensely, from validating product ideas to funding, accessing test-bedding sites, getting qualitative feedbacks and stepping up our game to deploy the application.” says Lean Station’s Co-founder and CEO Sharath Waikar 

JTC aims to use Lean PlanDo for its future building projects and has already confirmed its usage in 14 upcoming ones. These efforts will be complemented by training programmes to familiarise the project team with the application. There are also plans to integrate Lean PlanDo with other data sharing platforms and digital tools. 
As Mr Ong puts it, “The aim is to ease construction work and take productivity to the next level.”
