Benefits of Lean Construction
Myriado embraces a Lean management approach, and a culture that emphasizes collaboration, reliability of scheduling and delivery of the most value – from the client’s perspective – while consuming the fewest resources. Beginning with pre-construction and continuing nonstop throughout all phases of a project, Lean principles drive the efficient delivery of our services.
Lean culture emphasizes re-imagining and eliminating waste in all forms and creating predictable, reliable workflows. On projects that develop and maintain a Lean culture of continuous improvement, our project teams have experienced improvements in design team and trade contractor relationships, communication, scope definition, coordination, cost and schedule performance.
Some fundamental principles of Lean are:
- Define value from the customer’s perspective
- Understand the value stream of all steps in the process used to create the end product
- Reduce waste
- Ensure a smooth flow of value added activities
- Prefabricate and modularize building systems
- Utilize collaborative pull scheduling to provide each internal and external customer what they want, when they request it
- Seek perfection by committing to continual improvement in all areas of the process
Myriado implements lean thinking to establish a clear definition of the owner’s needs, including scope and hand-off criteria of all trade specialists, and rigorous management of hand-offs between trade specialists. Based on a Master Schedule with key milestones, stakeholders develop the specific plan for each phase in a collaborative scheduling workshop. The object is to keep the team working on well defined deliverables at a reliable and predictable pace and to eliminate re-work and waiting.
Myriado also uses 3D modeling and BIM as Lean tools; to model owner’s process flows and discover conflicts in design documents, shop drawings, and coordination drawings. We also model site logistics issues and the sequence of construction looking for ways to improve the flow of work by all parties.
