Key aspects of maturity assessment in Lean Construction

To achieve Lean Construction maturity in the management of the construction project is a continuous improvement process that occurs when the LC implementation is integrated into the life cycle of the construction project. This research presents a maturity assessment model and an evolution strategy to...
Conference paper

Principles as a bridge between theory and practice

In Lean Construction, principles like “flow,” “pull,” “remove waste” are used with ease. However, have they been correctly treated and understood? We call for reflection upon the power of principles to strengthen the theoretical conceptualisation of Lean as well as upon their power to support...

Achieving excellence in Lean implementation at construction companies: a case study from Brazil

Key themes that emerge from this study for a successful lean construction journey are; effort to stabilise the environment, knowledge creation and management, transparency in the process to enable simplicity and shared understanding, and building trust for further growth.
Conference paper

Finding the way to success in implementing Lean Construction in an unfavourable context

When it comes to lean implementation, the operational attributes of developing countries can cause significant impacts on priorities, tools and techniques. This paper took Iranian construction as a sample and sought to identify and prioritise the factors that could significantly contribute to the success of...
Conference paper

Takt maturity model: from individual successes towards systemic change in Finland

This study aimed to conceptualize the requirements for systemically implementing takt production within projects and organizations in the form of a maturity level model.
Conference paper

Takt performance indicators

The novel contribution of this paper to the practice of takt is to highlight (1) general challenges expected during the takt plan-execution and (2) takt performance indicators that reveal these challenges.
