Best-in-class contractors are bringing 50-60% of field labor into the prefabrication. To stay competitive in today's market, contractors must stop thinking about prefabrication as a custom, once in a lifetime job and start thinking about it like a manufacturer where standard products are built for installation. This program discusses lean best practices being deployed in the construction industry, the importance of design standardization, linking estimating to detailing to prefabrication to field installation and logistics and inventory management ideas to further enhance cost reductions resulting in higher margins.
Following this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss best practices used in the industry to accelerate the adoption and implementation of prefab at your organization
- Explain how to use prefabrication and lean principles to eliminate waste and create value
- Create a continuous flow of people, process and materials with value stream mapping
