CM-Lean Modules 1 & 2: Variation in Production Systems/Pull In Production

Vancouver Regional Construction Association
The Lean Construction Institute of Canada (LCI-C) is dedicated to transforming the building industry in Canada by changing how projects are planned, designed, managed and constructed, in all forms of project delivery. Lean principles, when used in construction, can help deliver projects more efficiently, while enhancing productivity and improving profitability throughout the construction project. Lean Construction has demonstrated its ability to minimize costs and maximize value for everyone involved on a project.

To help the Canadian building industry learn more about Lean Construction, and to foster a new culture of continuous improvement in planning, design and construction industry, LCI-C is pleased to offer the Lean Construction Certificate Program, developed by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

Module 1:
Variation in Production Systems is an introductory course in the Lean Construction Education Program. This half-day, instructor-led course teaches the concept of variation.

Following this course, you will be able to:
  • Define the different types of variation
  • Explain the concept of throughput
  • Distinguish the concepts of throughput and work in progress
  • Describe the role of variation in production operations
  • List sources of variation in construction settings
  • Explain & contrast variation mitigation techniques
 
Module 2:
Pull in Production is a half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of pull as a means to reliable production workflow.

Following this course, you will be able to:
  • Compare batch-and-queue and continuous-flow production systems
  • Distinguish push systems from pull systems
  • Explain & describe the impact of pull strategies on construction production systems

Upon completion of all seven CM-Lean modules, participants will be qualified to take the AGC Certificate of Management – Lean Construction exam.

This course is designed for all members of a construction project team, including: Project Coordinators, Project Managers, Site Supervisors, Management, Owners and Support roles.
