Typical construction processes create material waste but especially process-related waste. The challenges for a project delivery, with multiple stakeholders involved, normally include fragmented communication and conflicts of interest. BIM can serve as an information centre connecting the project members and key stakeholders helping to improve both communication and documentation within a project. In this workshop, we will look at the construction process, and how we can make it leaner by applying BIM and create collaboration models that increase the quality of design.
Event: DEVELOPING LEAN EXPERTISE – The LCI-UK Lean Construction Training Day
When: Wednesday 25th October 2017 at 9.00-17.00
Where: Matthew Boulton College of BMet,Birmingham
A morning workshop:
In pursuit of a perfect process with BIM and Lean
Who is the workshop for?
The workshop is meant for all the stakeholders involved in construction projects. Designers, construction engineers, project managers, maintenance managers and clients are all welcome.
Which area of industry will the workshop focus on?
The theory is valid for all kind of construction projects, but the interactive part of the workshop will concentrate on infrastructure projects. BIM is not yet used as widely in civil engineering as it is in vertical construction. The change is just happening, and this workshop will serve people from organisations that plan to make the change.
What will participants on the workshop learn?
Participants will learn the benefits of using BIM in construction projects, understand the barriers they may need to overcome in order to get full benefit from BIM, and find out about process-related waste. We shall also explain the principles of how BIM can help make the process leaner. In the interactive part of the workshop, we will study the phases of horizontal construction projects and discover what are the data and information needs of the various stakeholders during the project life cycle.
