dc.description.abstract© 2019 American Society of Civil Engineers. Implementation of the Last Planner System (LPS) has gained prominence in the construction industry, and its influence on the production system seems to be rapid and significant. However, recent studies reveal that application of LPS principles on projects is fragmented. The aim of the current study, therefore, is to develop an approach to support construction stakeholders in implementation of the LPS. Thirty semistructured interviews and three in-depth case studies were conducted with construction stakeholders. The authors developed a nonprescriptive but all-inclusive approach for supporting construction stakeholders in implementation of the LPS on construction projects. This study contributes to knowledge in engineering management because it provides new insight into how to apply the LPS holistically in the management of engineering projects. The study further provides evidence regarding current practice and performance of the LPS in the management of civil engineering projects, as demonstrated in the case studies. Finally, identification of the three levels of support (organizational, project, and external enabler) provides a focal point for construction practitioners to focus on in implementation of the LPS in the management of civil engineering projects.en
