Applying level of detail in a BIM-based project: an overall process for lean design management

Few construction companies apply the available lean tools and processes in an integrated manner when managing design. Additionally, lean design management tools and processes each have their own strengths and optimal phases in which they should be applied, so by combining information from various sources...

Real-time resource tracking for analyzing value-adding time in construction

Improving the effectiveness of production control has attracted the interest of researchers and lean construction practitioners over recent years, through techniques such as Last Planner System (LPS) and Location-based Management System (LBMS). However, in these techniques, data collection and analysis still remain manual. Remotely locating...

Real-time tracking of production control: Requirements and solutions

Production control in construction has been mainly discussed within the scope of Lean Construction, through tools and methods such as Last Planner System (LPS), Location-Based Management System (LBMS), and Takt Time Planning (TTP). However, despite the increasing use of these systems, information about the use...

Review of Lean Design management: processes, methods and technologies

Several lean methods, processes and tools have been successfully implemented in construction design, however, despite the increased use of Lean Design Management (LDM), many attributes are still applied in an isolated manner leading to lack of an integrated framework. The aim of this paper is...
