Time is money. Waste costs money. Look for all sources of waste and eliminate them. Save time, reduce waste, increase profits. That is the basis of working Lean in a nutshell. In this paper, we will make the general argument for contractors adopting Lean principles for construction and look at some examples in other industries that have been successful using Lean practices. We also will present some experiences in construction with an eye to adopting Lean for wall and ceiling contractors. The history of Lean concepts is covered
briefly to show origins and demonstrate how the practice has evolved and is supported by related concepts and practices. Then we will spend more time describing some of the major methodological practices for adopting and making Lean Construction part of the company culture of continuous improvement and customer satisfaction. 24pp. The PDF file will be eMailed to you within 1-2 business days after placing your order.  AWCI Members can download for Free in the Members Only section of the website.
