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...

A Portfolio/Process/Operations (PPO) analysis of a meta-project production system in renovation projects

The Portfolio/Process/Operations (PPO) model is a novel approach to understanding the elements that impact production systems in the world of construction. Building on prior work such as the "Transformation-Flow-Value" (TFV) theory, the PPO model adds a multi- and meta-project view through its consideration of the...

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...
Conference paper

Combining takt planning with prefabrication for industrialized construction

Prefabrication and takt planning and control have been discussed a lot among lean construction researchers and practitioners. However, prefabrication and takt planning together as a way to promote industrialization in construction have been under explored in earlier research. Based on a literature review and two...
