Takt production has recently received increased attention in both the construction industry and academia. However, the research on takt production has focused on documenting single successful cases, while attempts to holistically explore the impact of takt production on construction production flow are scarce. To address this knowledge gap, this study aimed to build a theoretical model of how takt production contributes to construction production flow. A qualitative multiple-case study was conducted to validate propositions based on a literature review, and the results were discussed and synthesized in the form of a theoretical model. The findings indicate that while takt production is a viable method to increase flow, it requires significant effort in terms of planning, control, and continuous improvement. While having a positive impact on process flow (location flow), the effects on operations flow (trade flow) are contradictory. The study has implications for further comprehensive evaluation of the effects of takt production on construction production flow while facilitating more predictable, systemic implementation of takt production across projects.
