Learn how to Minimize Costs and Maximize Value on Projects with Our Lean Construction Series!

AGC of Greater Milwaukee is excited to be offering a Lean Construction Series to kick off this year’s fall semester. This is our most vital program to increase your knowledge on Lean Construction. Units 1: Variation in Production Systems and 2: Pull in Production will be starting on August 30, 2018.

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. 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 designers and contractors who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. To develop the tools needed to build lean, the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) has 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.

AGC’s Lean Construction Education Program is a series of courses that progressively cover a range of topics essential to Lean Construction, including:

  • Unit 1: Variation in Production Systems
  • Unit 2: Pull in Production
  • Unit 3: Lean Workstructuring
  • Unit 4: The Last Planner® System
  • Unit 5: Lean Supply Chains and Assembly
  • Unit 6: Lean Design and Pre-Construction
  • Unit 7: Problem-solving Principles and Tools
