Description - Lean Design Management by Stephen Emmitt
The fields of design management and lean construction appear to be developing independently. This volume brings together a number of papers to argue that lean thinking should be integral to design management in the fields of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC). The publication brings together a variety of perspectives on lean design management from authors located in four continents; Africa, South America, Australasia and Europe. Themes covered include: ' Lean thinking and flexible building solutions ' Quality and flow of information in 14 sub-projects of a major airport project ' Ghanaian consultants' perspective on process waste ' Target costing and its application to social housing projects in Brazil ' Concept of 'first' and 'last' value, drawing on social housing projects in Chile ' Development of a lean design management model specifically for remote sites The papers offer a mix of theoretical materials and empirical research findings, providing a unique insight into aspects of lean design management.
