    Event Description:
    Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost - from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling. 
     
    To help contractors develop the knowledge needed to build lean, the Associated General Contractors of America developed the Lean Construction Education Program. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a lean operating system.

    UNIT 1: VARIATION IN PRODUCTION SYSTEM
    March 11, 2019 – 7:30 am – 11:30 am $250/$350

    An introductory course in the Lean Construction Education Program. This half-day, instructor-led course teaches the concept of variation. 
    Course Learning Objectives
    • Define the different types of variation
    • Explain the concept of throughput
    • Distinguish the concepts of throughput and work in progress
    • Describe the role of variation in production operations
    • List sources of variation in construction settings
    • Explain variation mitigation techniques
    • Contrast variation mitigation techniques
    UNIT 2: PULL IN PRODUCTION   
    March 11, 2019 – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm $250/$350

    A half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of pull as a means to reliable production workflow. 
    Course Learning Objectives
    • 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
    UNIT 3: LEAN WORKSTRUCTURING    
    March 12, 2019 – 7:30 am – 11:30 am $250/$350

    The first of two units that introduces the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half-day, instructor-led course describes the process of Lean Workstructuring. 
    Course Learning Objectives
    • Apply the methods and tools utilized in pull planning
    • Describe the concept of Lean Workstructuring
    • Outline the desired products of Lean Workstructuring
    • Describe the characteristics and application of the Last Planner® System

    UNIT 4: THE LAST PLANNER® SYSTEM     
    March 12, 2019 – 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm $250/$350

    The second of two units introducing the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half day, facilitator-led course shows how to conduct make-ready and weekly work-planning sessions.
    Course Learning Objectives
    • Apply the Last Planner System on a project;
    • Hold make-ready and weekly work planning sessions; and
    • Calculate, track and analyze percent plan complete for a project.

    UNIT 5: LEAN SUPPLY CHAIN AND ASSEMBLY      
    March 13, 2019 – 7:30 pm – 4:30 pm $500/$600

    A one-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of lean supply chain and assembly.
    Course Learning Objectives
    • Differentiate between traditional procurement practices and lean supply chain applications;
    • Identify waste and value-adding activities within the supply chain and assembly;
    • Evaluate the impact of using lean supply chain on waste elimination, continuous flow and site operations pull;
    • Identify strategies needed at the project and company levels to support the lean supply chain;
    • List examples of process improvements to the lean supply chain;
    • Expand lean beyond the individual project; and
    • Create a value stream map to diagnose and improve the supply chain.

    UNIT 6: LEAN DESIGN AND PRE-CONSTRUCTION      
    March 15, 2019 – 7:30 am – 11:45 am $250/$350

    This is a half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concepts of value-based management, lean in the design process and relational contracting.
    Course Learning Objectives
    • Distinguish between the varying definitions for design;
    • Define value and commonly used methods to maximize it;
    • Discuss waste and commonly used methods to minimize it;
    • Differentiate between traditional project methods and lean design; and
    • Explain the various lean tools used in design and how to deploy them.

    UNIT 7:  PROBLEM-SOLVING PRINCIPLES AND TOOLS      
    March 14, 2019 – 7:30 am – 4:30 pm $500/$600

    A one-day, instructor-led course  that describes the Lean Problem-Solving Process and illustrates how to use tools to solve problems in a lean manner.
    Course Learning Objectives
    • Define the difference between traditional and lean problem-solving;
    • Describe how to create a team environment to solve problems;
    • Explain how to create trust to avoid problems;
    • Describe Observation Walks; and
    • Identify root causes of problems.
