The construction industry is undergoing a transformative shift as an increasing number of companies embrace lean methodology. Lean construction is a philosophical approach that integrates specific principles into project design and completion. The primary goal is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. This waste encompasses various aspects of the work, including excess transportation, overprocessing, under-utilized talents, and more. By incorporating the latest technological advancements and industry tactics, lean construction is providing numerous benefits to these organizations, including the lessening of all the aforementioned waste. While there is no one-size-fits-all approach to implementing lean construction, leveraging technology proves to be a strategic starting point. Collaboration software designed for mobile-based project management has become indispensable in today’s fast-paced environment. This software facilitates real-time data transfer in the field, resulting in streamlined processes and increased productivity. While this software is proving to be extremely valuable, there is much more technology contributing to lean construction. For a deeper dive into some of that technology, such as artificial intelligence powered scheduling software and cloud-based solutions, take some time to review the accompanying resource.
