This research paper presents a model for construction that can bridge the gap between the schedules (takt planning or location-based management) and the on-site operations using visual management (VM). The model was developed using design science. It was shaped in a modular construction environment and evaluated theoretically. The knowledge base consists of; takt planning, location-based scheduling (LBS), plan-do-check-act, and visual management. The evaluation of the model revealed that a generic model could accommodate both schedule methods and incorporate continuous learning. The discussion provided knowledge about the industrial implication and how managers could apply this in Takt or LBS planned and controlled projects. This research further contributes to the literature by extending the existing knowledge of scheduling and visual management.
