Description

During the last decades, Lean Management methodologies established in the manufacturing environment have been applied and adapted to the construction industry under the term “Lean Construction”. Currently, concepts and technologies from Industry 4.0 are mainly transforming the manufacturing industry and only few applications have been implemented to construction and its connected supply chains. This paper shows how new technologies like Building Information Modeling connected with Virtual and Augmented Reality could empower Lean Construction methodologies to increase efficiency during the building execution process. The approach was tested by using the project simulation game Villego® with students from the course “Project Management” of the master degree LM-33 “Industrial Mechanical Engineering” of the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano.
