The advancements in construction technologies has great potential to increase productivity, but
Construction wastes like delays, re-works, over-production and uncertainty are still a major challenge.
Construction wastes take up majority of the effort involved in construction projects. There is a need for an alternative method to manage and eliminate these wastes.
Lean is a system built on Japanese concepts of Heijunka (Balanced Production), Hourensou (Collaboration) and Kaizen (Continual improvement) to observe, identify and reduce wastes by constantly improving on processes and fundamentally building trust among teams to increase value continually.
Productivity starts with LEAN.
What is LEAN PlanDo
LEAN construction is not a new idea, it's an old and trusted one. We are building on it making it easy to adopt and practise.
LEAN PlanDo is an enabler to adopt and practise LEAN
Every construction project is unique, comes with its own set of challenges. Sometimes people, sometimes process, most of the times the dynamic nature of the environment.
The key criteria for productivity and profitability of construction projects is the ability of project managers and planners to adapt to practical site challenges and take instant decisions with inputs from the operational team.
LEAN PlanDo provides a flexible collective workflow between project teams from owners to contractors to take informed decisions supported by powerful insights and impact analysis on its effects.
Simple, yet powerful.
LEAN IPD - Change is for the better
LEAN Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a system for construction success by making plans reliable, building trust between teams, reducing wastes and providing a continual improvement framework. LEAN IPD enhances value to all the project partners from developers to contractors to consultants.
