Lean construction

E7’s design is influenced by the principles and practices of Lean Construction. These encompass all stages of construction design and delivery. E7’s features leverage Lean Construction including:

  • Improves workflow reliability – work is assigned only when all dependencies have been fulfilled
  • Reduces project waste – collaboration is maximised and downtime; unnecessary people movement and processing; over-processing, over-suppling or unnecessarily moving materials; and construction build errors are all minimised
  • Process transparency – integrated, whole-of-workforce processes enable clear and accurate documentation and reporting of all workflows
  • Pull-based planning – work, materials and information are pulled through processes, meaning work advances at the right time
  • Cycle time reduction – time between construction steps is minimised through efficiency
  • Synchronised systems – timing of workflow is precisely aligned, supported by single data entry
