Overcoming information asymmetry in the construction industry based on open and closed contractor activity data

The purpose of the research is to find measures to reduce information asymmetry which significantly affects the relationship between customer and contractor, leading to higher prices for construction work and enhanced opportunism. The most effective level of interaction is ethical, as it significantly reduces information...

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...

Improving the learning of design management operations by exploiting production's feedback: design science approach

The results of this study indicate that while the relevancy of continuous learning is well recognised, construction organisations are incapable of effectively exploiting the best practices of knowledge management.

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...

Toward lean management for digital fabrication: a review of the shared practices of lean, DFMA and DFAB

Digital Fabrication (dfab) is emerging as a new technical and computational approach for the architecture and construction industry. Lean construction management and design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) offer two potential strategies for managing dfab.

Planning the BIM process in AEC projects

The architectural, engineering and construction industry (AEC Industry) needs to focus on the early design phases. The use of Lean Design Management and Building Information Model (BIM) can be used together for reducing uncertainty and improve communication.

An assessment of lean design management practices in construction projects

This paper aims to assess the lean management practices that are performed at the design phase of construction projects. Evidence exists for the implementation of 19 lean design management practices, grouped into three categories: stakeholder management, planning and control, and problem solving and decision making.

Contracting for collaboration in construction

The promotion of more collaborative environments stands front and center as a solution to the industry problems by promoting, via contractual terms, collaborative behaviors and processes. This study investigates the language of construction contracts by identifying keywords commonly associated with collaboration and comparing the incidence...

BIM for production: benefits and challenges for its application in a design-bid-build project

The poor management of the information flow in the AEC industry is a significant problem that might be overcome by the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Lean Construction philosophy. Thus, the paper presents a design-bid-build (D-B-B) project to investigate the necessary efforts of...

Exploring interdisciplinary collaboration in the detailed design phase of construction projects

Theoretically, collaboration has been studied from a variety of perspectives grouped into normative and practice-based approaches that have enhanced the research field at the inter-organisational macro-level, but there is no consensus on a framework to measure collaboration empirically in the field. Therefore, the aim of...
