This workshop will provide an introduction to lean design and construction concepts. It will highlight the benefits and opportunities that lean implementation provides, and it will give the participants a road map showing how to start using these principles on projects. Lean in design and construction focuses primarily on project improvement by identifying and eliminating waste and enhancing value to the customer.
This workshop will not only familiarize the participants with lean vocabulary, but it will also provide them with a roadmap to understand how to employ these concepts in their organizations and on their projects. We will also review a cloud-based tool that helps facilitate this production planning and last planner process.
