Study on Lean Principle Application in Construction Industries


Background/Objectives: The unbiased of this study is to assess the application of lean construction of construction firms and give eminence grade model to construction enterprises. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Wastage in the construction companies has been subject of several research projects around the world in recent years.

The questionnaires consist of major factors that influencing the implementation of lean construction. By knowing the major factors gives better understanding in allocating them to parties/stake holders involved. Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) was employed to analyze data. Findings: As a result, the execution level of construction companies in order to the use of lean construction was acquired, to check how it was implicit and in what way its principles were realistic.
