In Takt planning, there are currently no tools on the market that give you a process for identifying and leveling production. Just because you can create a pretty chart does not mean that you can make that happen in the field. If construction were that simple, this topic would not be worth writing about. The truth is that construction production is very complex, one of the most complex systems for various reasons. This is why Excel is so powerful when takt planning and, as a rule of thumb, I suggest all Superintendents, Site Managers, Construction Managers, Planners, or Schedulers use Excel when starting Takt Planning.
