The research focuses on in-depth analysis and
investigation of the
reason why Lean/Integrated Project Delivery system produces
results when applied to construction projects.
It further examines the pattern of Lean Project Success
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
and help in assisting construction stakeholders to induce
practice. Second, it has
methods to help eliminate chronic construction problems and
construction productivity in all project phases: Conceptual, Design, and
ultimately improve final project success.
