Abstract

Product Development Process (PDP)has become an important research topic in
construction since the 80’s .However , there are few research efforts focusing on understanding the integration between design andproduction planning andcontrol.This paper discusses how to plan andcontrol the design process in construction through the use of the Last Planner System.It is basedon four case studies carriedout in industrial andcommercial building projects.The main proposition of this investigation was to adopt the Last Planner System for the design process andto explore links between design and production management on site.Both quantitative andqualitative data were collected. The main conclusion of this study was that the Last Planner System providedsome key support for integration of design andproduction management on site.
