Lean construction is the creation of value through the elimination of waste. This collection contains informative resources related to various aspects of lean construction.
This policy brief outlines Australia’s progress on SDG Target 12.3 — halving food waste by 2030. The Australian government set and committed to this target. With less than nine years remaining, urgent action is required to halve food waste by 2030.
The 'Repair Design' project opens up informed, realistic and meaningful public discourse about repair practices, capacities and limitations in an Australian context. This research reframes repair as a design practice, and in doing so openly acknowledges design’s culpability in environmental degradation and waste.
Time and cost deviations in the construction industry are frequent. This paper developed a literature review to examine 33 research papers published since 1988 in the Web of Science database to identify the main factors causing these deviations.
This study aims to investigate and analyse waste by making-do in seven companies from Goiás with the aid of a Dashboard and perform the risk analysis of the identified waste. The aim to study making-do is highlighted in view of its relationship with other areas...
Applying heat maps to define workspace in construction based on real-time tracking system with coordinate positioning information
This paper aims to develop automated process of generation of workspace based on coordinates of workers and to explore various uses of workspace heat maps to serve the purposes of lean construction principles.
This theoretical study encompasses the role of digitalization in visual management (VM) applied in construction projects to increase the situational awareness (SA) of construction workers and crews.
This paper seeks to document the state of play in the resource recovery and waste sector in New Zealand with a focus on the infrastructure used to manage New Zealand’s waste. This includes landfills, material recovery facilities and processing facilities.
This study measures the impact of Lean and VDC on waste in operations, and on GHG emissions of masonry partitions.
The construction sector is considered one of the largest resource consumers on the planet and one of the main productive sectors of the economy. This proposed model demonstrates the impacts arising from delays in the delivery of materials, leading to the stoppage of teams and...
