Abstract
Waste is one of the main problems plaguing the construction industry. The need for identifying the sources of waste and eliminating them has resulted in the extension of the concept of lean and the development of lean principles and tools, especially for the construction industry. In order to improve the efficiency and reduction of waste, the lean construction has been introduced as a new management principle for better implementation. Currently many construction companies like USA, UK, Australia, Brazil, and Singapore are started to implement the lean construction to obtain better result from their current projects. There are many challenges to implement the lean concept in construction industry. In India, the implementation of lean management in construction industry is a major task. Due to lack of attention and illiterate towards the lean management principle the owner, contractor, engineers etc. are still in developing stage to implement this principle in their project. The paper presents the possibilities of using lean management principle in construction industry, which can surely increase the quality of work and profit rate by eliminating the wastage of materials. Most of the lean construction tools selected for the project are either ready to use, or are recommended with some modifications. The data collected from questionnaire survey are going to analyze by using Statistical packages for social science (SPSS) version22.
