Free LCI Webinar: Effective Management of Production Planning Information Using vPlanner

Effective management of the processes and information flows required to maintain dynamic networks of commitments is vital to the successful implementation of the Last Planner® system.  The more integrated the tools used, the less time it takes for a team to react to variation, resulting in more sound weekly work plan assignments. 

This Webinar will introduce vPlanner, an innovative visual planning software solution designed to support short-term interval planning as well as production system design and management. Built by seasoned planners, vPlanner supports all phases of the Last Planner® system through an integrated and easy-to-use visual interface. With vPlanner, teams can better utilize their limited resources to maximize the value from the time invested in planning, scale up their efforts, and reduce the overhead required to maintain the same information using incompatible tools.
