Applying Lean Thinking to Improve Lean Construction

Numerous studies have indicated that the high incident rate in construction can be influenced by the design of projects. For example, 42% of 224 fatalities in the U.S. construction industry between 1990 and 2003 were linked to decisions made during design, before the start of construction 3.

Tradtional VS Lean Lean construction

Lean Construction is a great alternative to traditional construction methods that can be wasteful in all aspects. Traditional construction is fast becoming obsolete in the industry. Lean Construction methods can potentially promise 50% fewer injuries, 20% faster build time and 20% less cost (Case Study: Lean vs Traditional, 2012).

Applying lean thinking in construction and performance

Some successful experience in implementing lean construction has been achieved. Conte and Gransberg [16], for example, examined the principles used in applying lean construction by over 20 construction companies in Brazil. Similarly, Wright [17] presented several cases involving the use of lean construc-tion.
