Large scale construction projects suffer from cost and time overruns that are typically a symptom of productivity problems and directly affect overall industry profitability. As a result, methodologies have been developed to reduce the risk of overruns and improve project outcomes. A number of these methods are based upon Lean production principles that focus on identifying value, eliminating waste and creating a smooth flow of materials, information and work. The application of Lean to construction is based upon treating the construction site as a temporary production line and is referred to as Lean Construction.

Agile methods have been found to improve the reliability of project delivery in complex environments, by decomposing the scope into small manageable parts, then completing these parts in order of greatest value. Although Agile and Lean methods share many common values and principles, Agile methods have not been properly investigated as a means of reducing the overruns associated with large scale construction projects.

Shared Principles • Optimisation of entire system through collaboration and systematic learning • Continual improvement and pursuit of perfection involving everyone in the system • Focus on delivering the value desired by the owner/client/end-user • Creating flow though systematically eliminating obstacles to value creation and elimination of processes that create no value (waste) • Creating pull production Key Differences • Construction projects are unique (one-of-a-kind) prototypes • Multiple suppliers act under different commercial arrangements • Construction environments are typically outdoors and/or difficult to control Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 11. Seven Wastes within Lean Engineering Innovation. 1. Waiting Extra Waste: 2. Motion 8. Under-Utilised People 3. Over Processing 4. Over Production 5. Transportation 6. Inventory 7. Correction / Defect Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 12. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Waiting Waste Also known as delay, waiting refers to the periods of inactivity that occur because a preceding activity didn’t deliver on time or finish completely. Waiting waste increases cycle time during which no value-added activity is performed Source: http://leanhomebuilding.wordpress.com/2010/06/27/the-7-wastes-on-the-construction-site/ Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 13. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Motion Waste This term refers to the extra steps taken by people to accommodate inefficient process layout, defects, reprocessing, overproduction or excess inventory. Motion takes time and adds no value to the product or service. To move and add value is called work. To move and not add value is called motion. Source: http://leanhomebuilding.wordpress.com/2010/06/27/the-7-wastes-on-the-construction-site/ Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 14. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Over Processing Waste This term generally refers to unnecessary steps in operations, such as reprocessing, double- handling, added communication and double-checking which adds no value to the product or service. Over-processing is often inserted into a process as a result of dealing with defects, overproduction or excess inventory. Source: http://leanhomebuilding.wordpress.com/2010/06/27/the-7-wastes-on-the-construction-site/ Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 15. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Over Production Waste Overproduction occurs when operations continue after they should have stopped.  It’s producing more than is needed, faster than needed or before it is needed. This results in product being produced in excess of what’s required, products being made too early, and excess inventory carrying costs.

  • 16. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Transportation Waste This is unnecessary motion or movement of products or materials that does not directly support immediate production, such as materials being transported from one job-site to another or materials being transported from the job-site back to the Building Partner. Ideally transport should be minimised for two reasons: It adds time to the process during which no value-added activity is being performed, and the material is exposed to handling damage.

  • 17. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Inventory Waste This refers to any supply (materials or goods) in excess of what is required to build the current homes under construction. Inventory includes raw materials, work-in- process and finished goods. Though not all inventory is unnecessary waste, excess inventory can quickly build-up and tie-up dollars and resources. All Inventory requires additional handling and space. Source: http://leanhomebuilding.wordpress.com/2010/06/27/the-7-wastes-on-the-construction-site/ Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 18. Lean Wastes in Construction Engineering Innovation. Correction Waste These are products, materials or services that do not meet expectation or conform to specification. Corrections and defects are anything not done correctly the first time and must be repaired, sorted, re-made or re- done, as well as materials which are scrapped due to defects.

  • 19. Challenges for Lean in Construction Engineering Innovation. Prototypes Construction projects are unique (one-of-a-kind) prototypes Environment Field environment is unpredictable - weather, access, ... Communication Teams are geographically separated adding complexity to sharing information Supply Chain Projects are typically deliver by multiple suppliers engaged through adversarial contract agreements Systems/Tools/Education Limited systems to support Lean Construction and limited understanding within the construction industry Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011

  • 25. Construction Complexity Engineering Innovation. Issue Plan Update Plan Ideal Plan Construction Site • Construction projects are not inherently complex - but because of the challenges encountered during execution they can become complex. • Because it is difficult to maintain an up-to-date plan - the plan rarely reflects the actual sequence in which tasks are completed • Majority of construction tasks are completed based on tacit knowledge and improvisation at the operational level Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
  • 26. Agile and Complexity Engineering Innovation. The principles and practices in Agile help reduce the risks associated with complexity. Setting and agreeing clear goals and boundaries Break problem into small pieces and completing in the order of greatest priority Defer design decisions to the last responsible moment Retrospection and continuous improvement Clear definition of done Measure progress and adapt plans Encourage group wisdom through team work and cross-functional collaboration Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011

  • 32. WorkFace Planning Engineering Innovation. WorkFace Planning involves the creation of small, well defined, field installation Work Packages that support the construction workforce. A typical Work Package supports one rotation (5 to 10 days) of a work crew and is based on activities that are extracted directly from the construction schedule/plan. Material and Equipment availability is confirmed Materials, before Work Packages Equipment are issued Master / Phase WorkFace Work Schedule Planning Packages A buffer of Work Packages is maintained to ensure field work Drawings, crews are optimally Specifications utilised Copyright Ennova 2011Friday, 23 September 2011
