Lean Construction

Lean construction is the creation of value through the elimination of waste. Originally derived from the Toyota Production System, lean construction has borrowed and adapted various concepts, systems and tools from lean manufacturing. Lean construction aims to increase efficiency and productivity leading to profitability, all whilst adding value for the customer. The original five principles of lean are value creation, reduction of waste, identification of value streams, improvement of flow and pull. This collection was part of a Linkage, Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) project, funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council.
