Building Consensus with Stakeholders – a new chapter in the book Theory of Constraints in Practice

We have published a new article by Dr. Keita Asaine. This article highlights the issues of input availability in Japanese public-work projects, such as late delivery of purchased equipment/materials and missing instructions from customers. These problems cause delays in construction scheduling and increase budget costs which are considered to be the result of a lack of synchronization between procurement activities and process control. In an attempt to overcome a lack of synchronization, the Japanese government runs “One-day Response” initiatives to prevent work stoppages in construction projects.
