In 15 separate rooms, 200 OAEC partners
(Owners, Architects, Engineers, Contractors)
were taken through a pull planning exercise.
Any team new to “Pull Planning” will soon
discover issues that require owner decisions,
architectural clarifications and engineering
reviews. Giving members of the TEAM the
appropriate and timely information will help
keep projects on schedule and on budget. Onsite
collaboration in the ‘big room” helps all team
members clearly see approaching deadlines and
plan appropriately. A Lean process looks for all
issues to be discussed on location, and thus a
high percentage of those issues are solved in
minutes rather than days or weeks.
Planning with the OAEs is only half the plan.
