Lean construction improves efficiency, reduces waste, and increases productivity through streamlined processes, eliminating unnecessary steps, and effective resource utilization. Tools like value stream mapping, kanban, and 5S reduce costs and improve project and operational quality.
This is a process where work is only started when it is needed, rather than on a predetermined schedule. This helps to reduce unnecessary work and improve overall efficiency.
Kanban is a visual system for managing workflow, where work is represented by cards or tokens. This helps to make the workflow more visible and allows for real-time adjustments to be made.
This is a system that uses pull planning and Kanban to manage workflow and improve collaboration between different teams.
This is a system that focuses on maintaining and improving equipment and machinery to reduce downtime and improve efficiency.
