This subject addresses the importance of using modern Lean manufacturing and construction principles to maximise value from all aspects of project productivity. The subject involves a critical review of standard approaches to on site progress and productivity as compared with the potential advantages of using Lean construction principles not only on site, but in the integration of Lean based on-site practices with Lean manufacturing principles for off-site fabrication where appropriate and viable.
The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment over two intensives, each of three days duration. The first intensive is dedicated to aspects of utilising BIM technology in determining work to be ‘manufactured’ on site and work to be ‘manufactured’ in pre-fabrication factories. The second intensive introduces students to using BIM/Lean/IPD principles to ensure project processes ensure maximisation of value in all aspects of design and project delivery.

1. Evaluate BIM/Lean/IPD technology outputs to make decisions regarding manufacturing aspects of the delivery process that could contribute to maximisation of project value.
2. Assess potential construction delivery intentions using BIM platforms with a Lean construction focus within an IPD approach to determine the best combination and integration of on-site production and off site fabrication to optimize project value.
This subject is not available as a general elective. To be eligible for enrolment, the subject must be specified in the students’ program structure.
