LCI Alabama CoP>> Target Value Design with Advance Practices
Wednesday, September 26, 2012 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (CDT)
Alabama Community of Practice (CoP)
Target Value Design with Advanced Practices
Rebecca Bettler, Lean Project Consulting
Throw-it-over-the-wall design that is performed by specialists and sub-specialists working in isolation from others who are interacting with the design results in projects that are unaffordable, unconstructable, off-target and late. Rework, repricing, change orders, and de-value engineering are all symptoms of a process hat ignores the nature of design and the systems nature of the built environment. Target Value Design (TVD) turns the current design practice upside-down.
· Rather than estimate based on a detailed design, design based on a detailed estimate.
- Rather than evaluate the construct ability of a design, design for what is constructible.
- Rather than design alone and then come together for group reviews and decisions, work together to define the issues and produce decisions then design to those decisions.
- Rather than narrow options to proceed with design, carry solution sets far into the design process.
- Rather than work alone in separate rooms, work in pairs or larger groups face-to-face.
TVD offers designers an opportunity to engage in the design conversation concurrently with those people who will procure services and execute the design.
During this event, Rebecca will introduce the nine practices for creating the conditions for delivering the target value from the design process.
