Project Performance Control: Last Planner System Combined with Earned Value Method

To date,there are still some deficiencies exist during the implementation of lean thinking. The last planner system combined with the earned value method was used to improve the project performance control. Several simulations were conducted to test the effectiveness of the combination. The result for the proposed combination indicates that the project performance can be improved via combining the two tools. This new approach can be used to both improve the project performance and ameliorate the last planner system.
