Lean construction thinking requires a holistic approach to generating value and reducing waste and has always been complimented by construction supply chain theory and practice. Various other concepts, methods and tools have been considered in more recent years such as integrated project delivery and Building Information Modelling.
Over the last two decades lean construction has evolved and industry and academia have developed and refined approaches.
This collection contains informative resources related to various aspects of lean construction and is part of a Linkage, Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) project, funded by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council. Additional resources related to this collection are available through the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC).
