The lean philosophy was originally developed by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Toyota to stabilize its own process organization. Today, lean management methods are used successfully in a wide variety of industries worldwide. The central idea of the management philosophy is the optimal coordination of all activities necessary for the value creation and the avoidance of superfluous activities in order to provide the customer with an added value.
Each member of our vielmo architekten team is made familiar with the lean philosophy, e.g. through joint workshops. We implement this philosophy in our project planning and in our everyday office life. Above all, working with BIM is based on the principle of lean management and is closely interwoven with it.
We use the Last Planner® system (LPS) in our planning processes. The core of the LPS is the 4-week preview. Here, the individual activities of each planner of the respective project team are planned on a daily basis and project-relevant milestones are set. Regular evaluation, direct exchange, and feedback allow the immediate removal of any obstacles to success. Within the entire planning process, quick and agile reactions are possible. The decisions are made and supported by the entire planning team.
