This subject addresses the importance of using modern Lean manufacturing and construction principles to minimize waste from all aspects of project productivity. The subject involves a critical review of standard approaches to onsite progress and productivity as compared with the potential advantages of using Lean construction principles not only onsite, 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 minimisation of project waste.
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 minimize waste on projects.
3. Synthesise various aspects of the 7 and 8 component models (depending on model source) for minimizing waste on projects with particular emphasis on - Minimising defects, Reducing unnecessary over production, Elimination of waiting time for materials delivery and other elements of construction process, Ensuring that human resources are employed and applied to optimally utilize their talents, Manage transport and inventory storage logistics to minimise waste, Reduce excessive and unnecessary processing and minimise non-essential motion around sites.
This subject is not available as a general elective. To be eligible for enrolment, the subject must be specified in the students’ program structure.
