Abstract

Research has demonstrated the importance of information flow and workflow in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. Through the correct application of the Last Planner® System, the coordination of a project and therefore its workflow has been improved. However, there is still a productivity gap that must be addressed through proper commitment management and good communication. Therefore, the objective of this article is to explore the relationship among planning reliability—using percentage plan completed (PPC) measures—linguistic action perspective (LAP) indicators and social network analysis (SNA) metrics in four construction projects that use the Last Planner® System in Chile and Colombia. A future line of research will be to analyze this relationship in conjunction with the main reliability indicators of construction projects through the application of PPC, LAP and SNA in more case studies.
