Lean Construction Certificate Program – Session 3 and 4

Eleanconstructioninstituteca-logoveryone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost – from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project.

To help contractors develop the knowledge needed to build lean, the Associated General Contractors of America developed the Lean Construction Education Program. All construction professionals will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into lean operating systems. Completion of all 7 modules also allows the opportunity to challenge the AGC Certificate of Management – Lean Construction exam and earn the CM-Lean designation.

Session 3: Lean Workstructuring 

Lean Workstructuring is the first of two sessions that introduces the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half-day session describes the process of Lean Workstructuring. Following this session, you will be able to:

  • Apply the methods and tools utilized in pull planning
  • Describe the concept of Lean Workstructuring
  • Outline the desired outcomes of Lean Workstructuring
  • Describe the characteristics and application of the Last Planner® System

Session 4: The Last Planner® System 

Lean Supply Chain and Assembly is a one-day session that explains the concept of lean supply chain and assembly. Following this session, you will be able to:

  • Differentiate between traditional procurement practices and lean supply chain applications;
  • Identify waste and value-adding activities within the supply chain and assembly;
  • Evaluate the impact of using lean supply chain on waste elimination, continuous flow and site operations pull;
  • Identify strategies needed at the project and company levels to support the lean supply chain;
  • List examples of process improvements to the lean supply chain;
  • Expand lean beyond the individual project; and
  • Create a value stream map to diagnose and improve the supply chain.
