Introduction
Nowadays I´m working as Academic at the Departamento de Obras Civiles, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María; My main research focus is Lean Management perspectives in construction. Particularly I´m interested in the application of the Linguistic Action Perspective into making more reliable promises within construction planning teams, integrating human aspects in the application of the Last Planner(r) System.

The current structures and dynamics of organisations require a steady flow of information and teamwork. Therefore, higher education institutions have implemented programmes to develop soft skills in their students. It is necessary to assess whether there is compatibility between the teamwork skills possessed by professionals trained in the various...

Construction projects rely on the people in the project team; people are selected to perform their role satisfactorily in the project and contribute to its success. However, the selection in the hiring process has different biases that are often not perceived by those who decide to hire people. This research aims to present a study applying the Cho...

Due to the high costs and low level of productivity of high-rise building constructions, it is necessary to plan the Tower Crane's stay on site. In a first instance and to establish a baseline, a survey was conducted along with a Panel of Professional Experts to validate how the Tower Crane works and the performance indicators mostly used in Chile....

Due to the low productivity of the construction sector and current global pandemic conditions, it is essential to analyze interpersonal relationships at work, engagement and labour productivity, through the management of commitments. Therefore, this article seeks to measure and analyze key Linguistic Action Perspective (LAP) indicators to examine c...

The use of games in engineering teaching is common practice in classes with lecturers all over the world. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, undergraduate civil engineering education became virtual and remote. In this context, many games traditionally played in person among students have undergone adaptations to the digital environment. The gam...

There is a need to improve construction productivity through project planning and control. In this study, the authors measured and analyzed the Key Indicators for Linguistic Action Perspective (LAP) in the Last Planner® System (LPS) through the Lean Implementation Plan (LIP) research method. This research was carried out for four high rise construc...
Conference Paper
This article contributes to efforts to teach new methodologies for Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management. Therefore, the creation of the Simulation Paper Planes is presented to teach the principles of Lean Production. The document details the basic rules, general instructions, materials, manufacturing drawings, key performance indicator...

Full-text available
Since 2001, a link has been established between the Last Planner ® System (LPS) and Linguistic Action Perspective (LAP). However, to date, it has not been studied in sufficient depth. This research developed a system of indicators to measure and control the management of commitments, through the Design Science Research (DSR) methodology, and thus c...
Conference Paper

Construction projects are carried out under the triple constraint of cost, time, and scope, as stated in the project management literature. However, time and cost deviations in the construction industry are frequent, and their magnitude in many cases is considerable, generating harmful consequences. This paper developed a literature review to exami...

Research has demonstrated the importance of information flow and workflow in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. Through the correct application of the Last Planner® System, the coordination of a project and therefore its workflow has been improved. However, there is still a productivity gap that must be addressed through...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The correct implementation of the Last Planner® System has been proven to increase the reliability of the planning and performance levels of projects by managing commitments. However, the current management of commitments in weekly planning meetings has not been sufficiently analyzed to teach people how to make reliable promises. Therefore, it is e...

In the context of making roads more sustainable, this study compares two asphalt mixes: one conventional, and one with end-of-life tyres (ELT), using a multi-criteria decision-making method focused on the advantages among the different alternatives called "Choosing by Advantages" (CBA). The aim is to answer whether it is appropriate to use ELT in a...

The objective of this research is to know how engineering students in Chile are prepared in the development of teamwork, and if there are differences between different institutions. Teamwork is a fundamental skill that all engineers must have in their professional career. It is for this reason that higher education institutions must train this skil...

Existe evidencia de que el sistema Last Planner® mejora el desempeño de proyectos, no obstante, no se ha analizado si dicha mejora es incremental, ni si existe un incremento mayor en el momento de implementación de aspectos específicos del sistema. Existen 4 niveles de implementación: sistematización de planificación de corto plazo, planificación i...
