Lean planning from site manager to project partner

What usually happens is that your planning is printed out by the project partners and taken with them to the site. 

But when a change is made to the planningthose project partners will still be using the old planning. With a bit of luck and alertness, you may suddenly realise – and inform on time – that one of your project partners doesn’t need to be on site until a day later. This kind of situation causes not only stress, but crossed wires and, just as important, can be very costly! 

KYP Project simplifies the entire process. No more sending around a file with the planning. Instead, you invite your project partners to use KYP Project – free of charge – so that everyone can see all tasks in the online planning. 

This is particularly useful when a change is made! Better yet, your project partners can indicate that they’ve completed their task in KYP. This gives you an immediate overview of any possible delays and lets you plan an inspection. Not surprisingly, builders who work with KYP Project state that KYP gives them peace of mind.

How do you go about lean planning in KYP Project?

Lean construction planning can be done in several ways on a wall. One of the most common approaches is lean planning per cluster on a line. Different colours for the different parties involved makes it easy to see which party is present at the site on which day. Lean planning in KYP Project is a bit different, but just as transparent. The cluster is also referred to as a phase in KYP Project. This is where the responsibilities of each party are outlined. In other words, instead of a horizontal planning, there is a vertical lean planning for all parties involved. And it’s available online or via the app 24/7.
