Intro to Lean Tools for the Construction Industry
For nearly 15 years, UB TCIE has been Western New York’s leader in deploying the Lean methodology throughout the region’s diverse sectors. Our expertise in eliminating waste and reducing process variation, leading to greater efficiencies and cost savings, has benefited the operations of manufacturers, healthcare providers, governments, educational institutions, insurers, non-profits and private firms. The Lean continuous improvement approach is just as applicable to the design and construction industry, where its principles are being employed to complete projects at a faster pace and lower cost. This four-hour breakfast seminar introduces participants to Lean thinking, and exposes them to examples of how the method’s tools are used in every stage of a project – from design, construction and activation, to maintenance, salvaging and recycling.
