Featured Faculty: Iris D. Tommelein

Iris Tommelein, professor of engineering and project management, is attending the 30th Annual Conference of the International Group for Lean Construction. The IGLC community celebrates 30 years of Lean Construction research and application in the industry. This international multi-conference brings academic and industry professionals together to discuss pressing construction research and practice topics.

Tommelein is presenting a paper on takt planning, moderating a plenary session, and leading the “Mistakeproofing Game” in the Greg Howell Simulation Game Exchange. Takt Planning is an ongoing initiative of the Project Production Systems Laboratory that Iris directs. Graduate students Rafael Coelho and Guillermo Prado will also present papers and research in the IGLC Summer School for Ph.D. Students.

Following P2SL’s First International Takt Production Forum held last May, P2SL is now preparing to host "The Sutter Way" day on 19 September 2022 and a 2-day Takt Planning Workshop for practitioners on 20-21 September 2022.
