Lean Construction 1: Variation in Production Systems

Cost - Corp. G.C. - $200, Associate - $250, Non-Member - $450

Presented by Mark Federle, Marquette University

Lean Construction challenges all project stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process.  Unit 1: Variations in Production Systems is a half-day course that introduces one of the foundational concepts of Lean Construction—variation. 
In the construction process, the work we do is all connected and variation in even one of those processes affects us all.  This course will provide tools to help participants recognize sources of variation of their own projects, examine the variation’s effect on the operations and mitigate the effects of variation in their every-day work.  
Following completion of the course, participants will have the ability to:
· Define the different types of variation
· Explain the concept of throughput and distinguish it from productivity
· Discuss the role of variation in production operations
· List sources of variation in construction settings
. Explain and contract variation mitigation techniques
