Lean Construction is driven to minimize costs and maximize value on each project completed, challenging all stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process.
The updated AGC Edge Lean Construction Education Program, 2nd edition, engages students with numerous activities and group discussions designed to apply Lean Construction principles and practices. Key course activities include the Parade of Trades exercise where participants will learn the effects of varying and unreliable workflow versus smooth and reliable workflow. Students will also learn and practice the Last Planner® System in a simulation that teaches students to engage in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning.
- Unit 1: Introduction to Lean Construction
- Unit 2 – Process and Production Basics
- Unit 3 – Project Production Systems
- Unit 4 – Lean Thinking in Field Production, Last Planner® System
- Unit 5 – Lean Thinking Outside of Field Production
After participants complete all five units in the program, they become eligible to sit for an exam to earn the Certificate of Management – Lean Construction (CM-Lean).
Courses are delivered via the Zoom platform; a webcam and mic are required for participation. Registration costs include the eTextbook.
