Creating and building environments where people thrive.
Straits Construction partners with agencies and developers to construct extremely complex building projects in a fast tracked manner. Before Lean PlanDo, Straits faced the following challenges: 1. Faced challenges in site work due to mismanagement of information flow. 2. Delays were being caused by subcontractors and were not able to effectively establish project control. 3. Issues were hidden, and this led to delayed troubleshooting to arrest issues on time which caused delays to the project.
After Straits adopted Lean PlanDo in their projects, the following improvements in project execution were seen. The advantages of using Lean PlanDo were: 1. Established collaborative control over the subcontractors to achieve smoother production processes on a weekly basis. 2. Clear objectives set to all the stakeholders and information flow was seamless through the digital tools thus boosting up the rate of progress weekly. 3. Transparency promoted collaboration which in-turn promoted proactive actions from the team which helped in avoiding many issues preventing delays.
With the goal of delivering projects on-time and within budget, Lean PlanDo could address the challenges Straits Construction was facing through its Integrated approach to Lean project delivery: 1. Lean PlanDo allowed the Project managers to use the last planner system and the theory of constraints with the use of the sofware tools and effectively establish collaborative control. 2. Due to its effective use to manage the project, it helped in idenifying constraints and delays for proactively handling the issues. 3. Priorities and due dates of key activities were effectively identified and stakeholders were made accountable to meet the relable plans. 4. Subcontractors were trained and empowered to participate collaboratively to effectively achieve smoother production.
