With Lean Construction methods to project success.

What project managers report on Lean Construction:

Lean management for the construction industry -
Five principles for process optimization

Lean management means "creating value without waste" (waste, Japanese "muda"). The aim is to optimally coordinate all activities that are necessary for the creation of value. In this way you avoid unnecessary activities. First, you identify the added value from the customer's point of view in order to know his needs. Then you look at the value stream and optimize it. This is done comprehensively with all services from raw material to the finished service/product. Learn more about the 5 Lean Principles here.

Lean Construction Management -
What does lean mean for the construction industry?

The increasing complexity in construction projects requires a rethinking in the construction industry. Due to the increasing number of project participants, growing project volumes and greater time pressure, this pressure is being exacerbated while the quality of services on the construction site is declining. Studies show that only 54% of the promises made or planned services of one week are actually kept. As a result, it is becoming increasingly difficult to meet customer objectives in terms of cost, time and quality. Consequently, Lean Construction methods have emerged from this situation.

Last Planner System - Lean in perfection

With the Last Planner System, projects are systematically viewed and optimized from a bird's eye view. Initially, the project is analyzed in an overall process analysis (GPA) and an overview of the value flows in the production process is created. In the following, a milestone / phase plan (MPP) is derived from the GPA, which represents the planning for a specific period of time. Consequently, the first project milestones are already recorded in the MPP and validated from back to front according to the pull principle. Subsequently, the 5+1 weekly preview provides a daily process & activity overview of the next six weeks. During the individual weeks, all activities are visualized in a simple & understandable way with Post'its ® or our digital solution Yolean.

Digital Lean Construction - Even easier and more accessible

Until now, most lean systems in the construction industry have been based on Post'its ®. Even if this works smoothly in the execution of construction projects, the planning phase poses other challenges for a lean system. This is because it is not possible to gather all the planners in a central location for a Lean meeting every week. Therefore we work with a digital solution that enables us to take lean construction to the next level. Experience the advantages of the digital application of Lean Systems.
