Unit 2: Pull in Production is a half-day course that introduces the concept of “pull” as a means to reliable work flow. In construction process, the work we do is all connected and variation in even one of those processes affects us all. This course provides tools to help participants recognize sources of variation on their own projects, examine variation’s effect on operations, and mitigate the effects of variation in their every-day work. Following completion of this course, participants will have the ability to: Compare batch-and-queue and continuous flow production systems, distinguish push systems from pull systems, describe the impact of pull in production systems, and explain pull strategies in construction operations.
