Abstract

PPC (Plan Percent Complete) is a measurement tool in Last Planner which has been used mainly in production phase. However, there are some other studies in which PPC measurement has been used in design phase and we believe it has an important role there too. The aims of this study were to test 1) how modified PPC measurement fits to the design management, 2) how to develop and measure PPC for this project 3) what are the participants’ opinions on this modified PPC. A modified PPC (task list) was used in this study. A total of six measurements were done. Five project participants were included in the measurement and their opinions on the modified task list were recorded. Measured PPC values varied from 30 % to 100 % and the average was 73 %. According to the participants, a task list had a positive effect on their work. The conclusion was that the modified PPC measurement seems to be an appropriate tool for design management. It was accepted by designers and will be used in future projects. However, BIM needs to be connected to the task list more closely. More data is also needed to set a target value for PPC in design phase and to find out how PPC predicts project success.
