This presentation will focus on how the project team on the 450,000 square foot expansion of the Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children leveraged pull planning, work structuring, and a production system design approach to standardize the process for building out a five-story hospital atrium. Presenters will demonstrate how the team was able to identify simpler process approaches to constructing what initially appeared to be a complex product design.
This session will enable attendees to:
Describe how the team applied Lean principles to manage the construction of the atrium.
Identify steps for managing more successful pull planning meetings.
Assess challenges associated with changing the culture to embrace Lean principles, tools, and techniques. Discover the potential benefits of pull planning on your project.
