CM-Lean Module 5: Supply Chain & Assembly

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 5:
Lean Supply Chain and Assembly is a one-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of lean supply chain and assembly.

Following this course, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate between traditional procurement practices and lean supply chain applications;
  • Identify waste and value-adding activities within the supply chain and assembly;
  • Evaluate the impact of using lean supply chain on waste elimination, continuous flow and site operations pull;
  • Identify strategies needed at the project and company levels to support the lean supply chain;
  • List examples of process improvements to the lean supply chain;
  • Expand lean beyond the individual project; and
  • Create a value stream map to diagnose and improve the supply chain.
 
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.
