PRINCIPLES AND TOOLS
Lean Construction seeks to minimize waste and maximize value
on each project completed, challenging all stakeholders to develop
and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process.
Everyone related to the construction process has the incentive to get
the project done faster and with higher value — from the project
owners, who want to see tangible results for their investment, to
designers and contractors who want to do their job well and move on
to the next project.
Throughout the construction process — planning, design,
construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging and
recycling — the holistic pursuit of continuous improvement drives
more efficient, effective and economical projects.
From an enterprise perspective, lean is most effective when
embraced by areas across all levels of the company. To do so, senior
management must understand the need for and advantages of lean
implementation. However, as lean is also an individual journey,
all project team members must work together on a daily basis,
incorporating lean principles into their most basic work, to see the
true benefits of lean. This course is just one part of the foundation to
help you reach these goals.
Unit 7: Problem-solving Principles and Tools is a seven-hour, instructorled
course that introduces you to the use of teamwork in solving
problems and useful tools to support the problem-solving process.
