The construction industry in the US is laden with waste and inefficiencies.

"Lean construction" is an approach designed to optimize the building process – reducing costs and improving outcomes. Using data from the "Lean Construction SmartMarket Report" published by McGraw Hill Construction (now Dodge Data & Analytics), this Dassault Systèmes infographic illustrates the adoption, drivers, benefits, and challenges of Lean construction.
