Abstract: As part of an improving planning assessment procedure at the construction site, a questionnaire survey has been undertaken among all employees. Questionnaire surveys were administered to the project participants to evaluate the Last Planner System implementation process. The case study was carried out in Reserve Bank Officer’s Quarters, Ameerpet, Hyderabad located in Southern region of India. It entailed the construction of one prototype residential building and one community centre building. The project is located at Reserve Bank of India’s permanent site which is located 6 km from the Reserve Bank of India’s Hyderabad office (Saifabad). The contract value of the project is approximately INR 12.5 Crores with estimated project duration of 18 months (24th July, 2014-23rd January, 2016). The project location is having direct access to the main road and is located in the core hub of the city. The questionnaire was divided into four sections (Section A-D). The first section (i.e., Section A) focused on getting an overview of the outcome of the implementation. Whereas the second section (i.e., Section B) focused primarily on the barriers of the implementation process. The third section (i.e., Section C) gave attention to the critical success factors of the implementation process. Furthermore, the last section (i.e., Section D) dwelt on the benefits perceived on implementing Last Planner System on the case project. The respondents for the questionnaire comprised of the contractor’s team, the employer’s and the suppliers. A percentage breakdown of the respondents is shown in Table 1 and the details of the questionnaires and their corresponding responses are discussed below. Out of the 25 employees involved in the survey 24 (96%) provided responses accordingly.
