RE: Lean Manufacturing Engineering, 6-Sigma

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This has been around for several years now. The Lean Construction Institute http://www.leanconstruction.org/ has been around since the late 1990's. The Design Build Institute of America http://www.dbia.org/ has been looking at it, and more recently the US Army Corps of Engineers has started looking at Lean Manufactureing and 6 Sigma as they contemplate expediting construction for their programs.

Where employed judiciously, it has been successful. The Bureau of Prisons has been employing these techniques and design build for quite some time. It is best to develop a prototype project and work out the bugs before a major deployment.
