AGC Teaches Contractors to Develop Lean-Construction Work Flows

Lean Construction challenges all project stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process. Unit 2: Pull in Production is a half-day course that introduces concept of pull as a means to reliable workflow.

In the construction process, the work we do is all connected and variation in even one of those processes affects us all. This course provides tools to help participants recognize sources of variation on their own projects, examine variation's effect on operations and mitigate the effects of variation in their everyday work.

Following completion of this course, participants will have the ability to:

  • Compare batch-and-queue and continuous-flow production systems
  • Distinguish push systems from pull systems
  • Describe the impact of pull on production systems
  • Explain pull strategies in construction operations
