SSUD71-011: Continuous Process Improvement (Quality and Safety Standards)

Description

This subject addresses the importance of using BIM/Lean/IPD to optimise design quality to ensure it meets client brief standards. It also covers the management of quality during the construction phase by early identification and design rectification of potential coordination clashes and the like, thereby ensuring delivery on two key Lean Construction principles -  eliminating defects and eliminating waiting time on site during construction. The subject also addresses how BIM models and Lean construction approaches in a collaborative IPD approach can significantly enhance the ability to identify and facilitate elimination/management of potential safety risks that might otherwise manifest during construction of the project.

The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment dedicated to aspects of utilising BIM technology platforms to identify opportunities for design quality improvement and identification of potential construction and operation period safety concerns, and elimination of those concerns. The subject introduces students to using BIM/Lean/IPD principles to ensure project processes ensure minimisation of waste and optimum timeliness of making necessary change in relation to design adjustments and safety risk elimination.

Learning outcomes

1. Analyse BIM/Lean/IPD technology platforms to enhance design quality.
2. Point out potential construction phase safety risks resulting from design approaches and initiate design adjustments to mitigate those risks.
3. Distinguish between design content and quality requirements of various stakeholders via collaborative and integrated use of BIM/Lean/IPD project techniques and processes.
4. Identify and estimate the risks of failure to ensure collaborative early identification and management of design content and quality standards, not only from a final design acceptance perspective, but also from the perspective of optimising safety aspects of all building operations.
