The word plan is in English both a verb and a noun, reminding us that to plan is a
process resulting in a product, a plan. While the Last Planner System (LPS) is
primarily focused on how to plan and control production, other planning concepts are
more focused on the plan contents (the plan). A more explicit approach to the
characteristics of a good plan could improve LPS as a planning concept. The paper
proposes such a list, based on a discussion of the plan contents highlighted by the
following planning concepts: Critical Path, the Location-Based Management System,
Takt Planning, Critical Chain, Agile, Task Planning and the Last Planner System.
