4 Methodologies in comparison: BIM, Lean Construction, Last Planner System (LPS) and BIM Planner System (BPS)

4 Methodologies in comparison: BIM, Lean Construction, Last Planner System (LPS) and BIM Planner System (BPS) - Where are the similarities? Where are differences?

Some talk about BIM, others about Lean Construction or the Last Planner System. I talk and write about the BIM Planner System.

We all live in the age of digitization. Some methodologies come without IT. Others, on the other hand, are inconceivable without the use of IT. In the age of digitalization, a methodology does not necessarily have to be overstated and invalid because you do not use IT. A methodology can also be further developed.

All 4 methodologies in my comparison have one thing in common. The work will be more productive and efficient, and the teams will work together more transparently and cooperatively in the future. Digitization does not mean that everyone is constantly communicating with a smartphone and the number of e-mails continuously increases. From digitization, I expect a renewal and development in non-verbal communication, which makes the collaboration of teams easier and more efficient. From digitization, I also expect a clear reduction of inefficient discussions with endless discussions in the facts, which are already known to the participants.

The comparison criteria selected by me are subjective. In the resulting issues, I tried to be as objective as possible. I have been dealing with the different topics and methodologies in
part for years. But the BIM Planner System (BPS) did not come into existence until this year. If any of you would like to know something about other criteria in this list, then please send me the criteria. I would like to include you in the list and update this article.
