Integrated project delivery (IPD) and lean methodologies are increasingly used for the design and construction of health care facilities. However, an in-depth analysis in terms of the value to the organization, and potential cost/benefit or return on investment analyses remains a challenge. To meet this challenge, a health care facility, an academic institution, and an architectural firm came together to share insights on the plus/delta of a lean IPD process and develop an inventory of metrics to facilitate systematic benefit/cost analyses. The presentation will share phase one findings from a multi-phase study.
This session will enable attendees to:
Identify the advantages and disadvantages of using Lean thinking in the IPD process.
Define “value” and track quality metrics.
Put together a framework for collecting quality metrics that can allow cost/benefit and/or ROI calculations, based on metrics currently tracked.
Determine how implicit costs and benefits can be made explicit.
