Lean construction (LC) is a method of production aimed at reducing costs, materials, time and effort. Essentially, the methodology is to minimize the bad and maximize the good. Using the principles of lean-construction, the desired outcome would be to maximize the value and output of a project while minimizing wasteful aspects and time delay. This outcome is produced when standard construction approaches are merged with a clear and concise understanding of project materials and information and two sets of management archetypes, planning and control. This can only be done by strategic planning and action by a management group and with the help and aid of all workers. The lean focus causes all parties to work as one, thus maximizing time and allows more efficient planning and implantation.
