Design for Excellence (DfX) – How to eliminate waste in construction

Efficient planning in construction projects is a key factor in reducing waste. Learn how the concept of Design for Excellence (DfX) can lower the most severe waste in construction projects through early involvement and integration.

Typical construction processes provide waste: material waste but especially process-related waste. The majority of this waste can be avoided with efficient planning in the front end of projects. A recently published article by Halttula, Haapasalo, Aapaoja and Manninen – Early Involvement and Integration in Construction Projects: The Benefits of DfX in Elimination of Wastes – in the International Journal of Management, Knowledge and Learning describes how the concept of Design for Excellence (DfX) can provide a way to reduce the most severe waste in construction projects.

Learn how DfX reduces different types of waste produced by the construction industry and allows project stakeholders to eliminate waste automatically through early involvement and integration.
