Using 5D models and CBA for planning the foundations and concrete structure stages of a complex office building

The use of 5D models and flowlines were found to be the best alternative, some factors that stand out are scheduling with an effective Lean Production system, synergy with Earn value reports, and automation in quantities and scheduling.

Construction materials flow investigation: delay evaluation in a sand supply chain with simulation

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...

Precast concrete building construction process comparison

This paper deploys value stream mapping (VSM) as a lean methodology to investigate and compare the process differences between a Canadian precast project and a Chinese precast project as a basis for improvements in reducing process waste.
Conference paper

A framework for understanding the dynamic nature of value in design and construction

Since the introduction of the Transformation, Flow, and Value (TFV) theory, the lean construction community has widely invested in research to understand and analyse effectively the concept of value in design and construction. This paper thus aims at exploring and assembling the different attributes influencing...

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.
Conference paper

How does takt production contribute to trade flow in construction?

The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how implementing takt production, which heavily focuses on improving the flow of processes, affects the flow of trades.
Conference paper

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.
Conference paper

Waste in design management operations from the viewpoint of project needs

Traditional design management processes aim to remove waste on individual design processes, neglecting to view the process as a whole. This research answers the question: How project participants perceive waste in design management operations, and in which ways the waste could be eliminated?
