Lean Construction Vanesa Martínez Andreina Rodríguez Expositor: Eduardo Rojas Lean Construction nace a partir del concepto de “Lean Manufacture”, el cual surgió después de la II Guerra Mundial en 1950. Los japoneses cambiaron el tamaño, diseño y filosofía de las máquinas del sistema automotriz americano, lo cual logró mayor eficiencia en la producción. Lean Construction Blog The Lean Project Delivery System (LPDS) was first introduced by Glenn Ballard in 20001. LPDS is a philosophy1, but also a delivery system2 in which the project team help customers to decide what they want3, not only realize decisions and perform activities. Ballard3 described LPDS also as “project-based production system” because it is a temporary production system4. In contrast to traditional project delivery systems, LPDS questions what needs to be done and who is responsible for the task at the very beginning of the project. Therefore, the following points are key characteristics of LPDS1: Project is structured and managed as a value generating process Early involvement of downstream stakeholders to plan and design the project steps through cross functional teams Pull techniques are used to manage the information and material flow between stakeholders Buffers are used to absorb variabilities in the production system through global optimization

Lean Construction DESCRIPCIÓN DE LA TOMA DE DATOS: Se basa en determinar el porcentaje de participación de la división del trabajo en obra por parte delos operarios y peón y analizar la eficiencia de la cuadrilla efectuando su mejora.Los tiempos se clasifican en: TP= Tiempo productivo (se puede valorizar, agrega valor al producto analizado). TC= Tiempo contributorio (es trabajo de apoyo al tiempo productivo pero no agrega valor) TNC= Tiempo no contributorio o de perdida, no agrega ningún valor a la actividad.B. Se debe prediseñar un formato para una toma apropiada de datos de una partida, dondese tenga impreso los detalles de cada tipo de trabajo que estén conformando las 3categorías clasificadas (TP, TC, TNC). El que recoge los datos debe colocarse en una posición tal que no incomode e interfieracon el trabajo de la cuadrilla
