Abstract

This study addresses the suitability of takt planning and takt control (TPTC) for the interior phase in residential construction projects. The purpose is to gain understanding on how to best implement TPTC in residential construction. The study was conducted as a qualitative case study, by investigating TPTC implementation for the interior phase in a residential construction project in Finland. The initial motivation for takt implementation was to achieve better flow efficiency and radically shortened production duration. The analysis was based on 14 interviews, site observation, data from digital control tools and workshops, and aimed to identify lessons learned as well as required future development actions in TPTC implementation. The findings indicate that TPTC is well suitable for the interior phase and even in the first pilot project it substantially reduced the project duration. However, certain barriers, as well as enablers, were identified in both planning and control phases, which can be adopted as a basis for continuous development. For example, more detailed planning of wagons and tighter collaboration between all the project participants should be considered. The study represents the category of applied research and has implications for achieving the full potential of takt planning and control in the future.
