Abstract

The implementation of the Last Planner System (also known as Collaborative Planning in the UK) in managing production planning and control in the construction is growing. However, recent evidence from different parts of the world suggests that LPS elements are partially implemented and at other times the implementation is stalled. This is largely due to the dearth of a holistic approach to support construction stakeholders in the implementation of the LPS. In view of these the Last Planner System Path Clearing Approach was developed based on evidence gleaned from three years research, to guide construction stakeholders (client, main contractor and subcontractors) in the implementation of the LPS. The Last Planner System Path Clearing Approach (LPS-PCA) integrates organisational, project and external path clearing levels. This expands previous approaches to the implementation of the LPS in construction which focused more on the project level. A pilot implementation of LPS-PCA on a real world project with a client organisation indicates that the developed LPS-PCA supports the implementation of the LPS on a construction project.
