While ‘Lean Construction’ is not a new concept, many construction professionals don’t know precisely what it is or how to apply it effectively. Even when we look at the oldest generation of the workforce, they agree that mobile technology is more efficient and offers a measure of accuracy that pen and paper can not provide.
Traqspera has created a mobile app available on any device — anywhere that supports enabling your company to take a lean approach to construction.
So What Exactly Is Lean Construction?
Lean construction is a series of processes and policies to minimize the waste of materials, employee time, and effort in order to generate the maximum possible amount of value to clients.
In North America, lean construction has become heavily associated with digital inventory applications, where companies receive and track materials through computer software, allowing them to keep less on hand. While this is part of it, lean construction involves much more than effective inventory management.
Lean construction offers you a framework for improving the entire construction process, from concept through completion. These rely on the pillars of continuous improvements, improving time and material waste, increasing client satisfaction, and enhancing employee fulfillment and happiness.
