About the Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP)
- Distinguish between the varying definitions for design.
- Define value and commonly used methods to maximize it.
- Discuss waste and commonly used methods to minimize it.
- Differentiate between traditional project methods and lean design.
- Explain the various lean tools used in design and how to deploy them.
Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit to optimize efficiency, maximize value, and minimize costs through all phases of a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging, and recycling. Everyone related to the construction process has an incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost - from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment, to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project.
AGC of America developed the 7-unit Lean Construction Education Program (LCEP) to help contractors develop the knowledge needed to build projects using Lean practices. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a Lean operating system.
