Map and Directions
UC Berkeley's Project Production Systems Laboratory (P2SL), the Lean Construction Institute (LCI), and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) are delighted to again co-host the Lean Design Forum. The Forum meets twice a year (in Berkeley early in the year and in the Midwest mid-year).

As in previous years, we are working with AIA so you may get continuing education credit for participating in this event.

This 1.5-day meeting on Thursday (7:30 am to 4:15 pm) and Friday (7:30 am to 12:15 pm), January 26-27, 2017, will be held at HS Lordships at the Berkeley Marina. 

Each of 
six 90-minute sessions will be devoted to a single speaker or panel. Presentations will be no longer than 30 minutes, to allow time for in-depth discussion with the speaker and with one another about what the speaker presented.

Session II: Center for Lean Engagement and Research in Healthcare
BERKELEY, CALIF. – October 13, 2016 – The UC Berkeley School of Public Health today announced its new Center for Lean Engagement and Research (CLEAR) in Healthcare. The center will identify new ways to transform healthcare delivery through continuous improvement strategies that enhance patient outcomes and reduce the growth in the cost of care.
“The Center for Lean Engagement and Research in Healthcare will help achieve the triple aim of better healthcare quality and patient experience, improved population health and reduced growth of healthcare costs,” said Stephen M. Shortell, PhD, professor and dean emeritus at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. “Our research will focus on lean methods designed to improve the healthcare system. We will examine new payment models that reward value, identify new ways to lead and manage healthcare organizations, and discover how care providers and health systems can create greater value for patients.”

Session III: Hill Collaborative Design & Scoping Process
CH2M will share their approach to Target Value Design as they have been practicing it for nearly twenty years on a variety of process-industry capital projects.  CH2M’s Collaborative Design and Scoping Process, or CDS, has the following objectives:
•       Uncover customer value and align on constraints of time and money.
•       Rapidly build a unified, high performance, integrated delivery team.
•       Draw upon the expertise of the entire project community to best meet the owner’s objectives.
•       Develop effective solutions very early in the project through collaboration among design, constructors, trade partners, and the customer.
•       Determine rapidly whether or not the project can be built within allowable cost.
•       Very early in the project create a scope-cost-decision model providing high cost certainty and enabling flow-based production management of detailed design and construction.
Participants will learn:
•       What it means to design to a target cost.
•       How collaborative scoping of the project enables effective design decisionmaking.
•       How it is possible to make important design decisions early without needing to produce detailed designs.
•       How the CDS process flows.
•       What is the ‘scope list’ and what purposes does it serve.
•       How substantial cost, schedule, and quality gains are made possible.
•       How the CDS process evolved over time, through many partnerships and contributions.
