Lean Unit 2: Pull In Production
- January 26, 2018
12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
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.
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 in their every-day 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 the productions systems
- Explain pull strategies in construction operations
This is one of the seven Lean Construction units offered by the ABA. A final exam will be offered by AGC of America to obtain AGC’s Certificate of Management- Lean Construction (CM-LC) credential.
