Lean thinking for structural engineers
The lean application in construction sector has received significant attention. Building up on previous recommendations regarding lean design and construction, this study explored lean thinking for Structural Engineers (SE) to identify new, efficient and innovative ways for executing structural designs and engineering works.
Development of collaboration in planning: what can construction project management learn from other fields?
This study seeks to examine how collaboration in planning has developed in the fields of urban planning (UP), software design and lean construction and to present what construction project management can learn from these developments.
The prevailing procurement system as a source of waste in construction: a case study
Prevailing project procurement processes and strategies are thought to be the root cause for many of the reported criticisms of the construction industry, such as lack of trust and collaboration and short term adversarial and transactional relationships. This study uses an integrated grounded theory case-study...
Using TVD simulation to improve collaboration
Recently, there has been an increase in the creation, reinvention and use of simulations and serious games to teach Target Value Design (TVD) and other lean principles to project stakeholders encountering them for the first time. The results of this study reported that the simulation...
Lean and sustainable construction: a systematic critical review of 25 Years of IGLC research
A growing body of knowledge has been emerging from the International Group for Lean Construction (IGLC) community, in relation to synergies between Lean Construction (LC) and Sustainability. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to critically review the progress made towards integrating LC and Sustainable...
