America (AGC) has developed the Lean Construction Education Program. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a lean operating system.

AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program is a series of seven courses that progressively cover a range of topics essential to Lean Construction, including:

  •      Lean workstructuring, supply chains, and assembly
  •      Variation and pull in production
  •      Production management
  •      Management by values
  •      Problem-solving principles and tools

Unit 6: Lean Design and Pre-construction is a half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concepts of value-based management, lean in the design process and relational contracting. Following this course, you will be able to:

  •      Distinguish between the varying definitions for design.
  •      Define value and commonly used methods to maximize it.
  •      Discuss waste and commonly used methods to minimize it.
  •      Differentiate between traditional project methods and lean design.
  •      Explain the various lean tools used in design and how to deploy them.
