RECOVERING WITH MINIMUM LOSSES
A successful story of project recovery through Integrated Lean Project Delivery (ILPD) & collective team efforts.
recovered after re-strategizing and re-planning to recover from expected delay of 7-9 months
Loss reduced in addition to the mitigated loss of revenue for the clients
Increase in productivity in various trades of work across the project
10-storey industrial factory building with contract value of $140 Million SGD, and contractual duration of 21 months.
High-rise multi-tenanted development
A fast-tracked factory construction project with complex structural design, the project faced multiple issues such as limited site access and restricted crane operation hours. Having major design changes also gave rise to serious delays in precast production and structural works. Having no realistic construction schedule in hand, site sequence became uncontrolled and many key issues were not expored. Project completion date became uncertain and there was an immediate need for a working strategy with collective effort in recovering the project.
After adopting Lean PlanDo in the project, the project team as a whole gained the following benefits; improvement in weekly plan and commitment reliability, more realistic and reduced cycle times of construction works, avoided loss of reputation due to project delay, gained knowledge on project cost/planning to improve on future projects, streamline processes and united project team, prevented additional rework effort and cost.
Through Integrated Lean Project Delivery (ILPD) and collective team efforts, a realistic master program with anticipated challenges, analysed time and cost impacts, possible strategy options, team alignment and collective milestones were set. With this master program, the team actively performed forward planning of construction works through weekly lookahead planning sessions, monitored the project closely realtime through Lean PlanDo for everyone to have the latest information for full alignment and instant decision making. Lean PlanDo mobile apps allowed the daily progress update for the site team and every delay reason or technical/site issues were captured clearly in detail. Finally, weekly project review and re-planning together with monthly project analysis feedback were carried out using the data captured in Lean PlanDo Insights for continual improvement.

“Lean PlanDo helps in planning better by identifying the constraints and crucial dates. We are of the view that, the more stakeholders there are in the Lean PlanDo team, the more effective it would be”
Dr. Mangesh G. Korgaonker
“Keeping pace with the current needs of the construction industry, NICMAR has acquired academic licence of Lean PlanDo and trained faculty to bring a paradigm shift in the AEC industry in India towards collaborative planning for enhanced productivity and performance of projects”
“Lean PlanDo software uses lean principles and Last Planner® System methodology to make planning predictable and reliable. Adopting Lean PlanDo for projects in Malaysia will help to improve collaboration and commitment of project team to meet project demands. Construction companies can reduce waste in their operations and grow the margin with Lean PlanDo”

“Lean PlanDo helps in planning better by identifying the constraints and crucial dates. Plans are more reliable and helps in reacting to challenges proactively”
“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”
