This paper presents results that contribute to an ongoing PhD work, looking at the
implementation of Lean Production in manufacturing and what findings can be
derived for the implementation of Lean in construction. This paper focuses on Last
Planner as one approach to implementing Lean in construction. The aim of the paper
is to identify implementation barriers and to determine whether or not factors
contributing to the success of Lean projects in manufacturing were present in last
planner implementation projects. The paper concludes with suggestions for further
research aiming at reducing the barriers experienced when implementing Last Planner
and highlighting important points to be considered when using any lean method on
construction sites in the future. These findings will be developed further as part of the
PhD work.
