The research focuses on in-depth analysis and investigation of the 
reason why Lean/Integrated Project Delivery system produces different 
success results when applied to construction projects.It further 
examines the pattern of Lean Project Success Factors (PSFs) and their 
impact on construction productivity by developing a methodology for a 
novel rating system in construction.This methodology was applied to a 
data base of real construction projects and used to create Lean Project 
Rating System (LPRS).The research has accomplished two goals:First, it 
has identified lean success indicators that influence projects and help 
in assisting construction stakeholders to induce Lean/IPD 
practice.Second, it has suggested methods to help eliminate chronic 
construction problems and improve construction productivity in all 
project phases:Conceptual, Design, and Construction, and ultimately 
improve final project success.
