Lean management methods transfer from automotive to construction industry sector
Languages of publication
Sektor budowlany wymaga pewnych zmian, które pozwolą na dostosowanie się do współczesnych trendów, ograniczenie kosztów, zoptymalizowanie odpadów i uwzględnienie zrównoważonego rozwoju. Celem artykułu jest przedstawienie transferu metod zarządzania lean z sektora automotive do sektora budowlanego. Podejście i metody badawcze: obserwacja, analiza materiałów źródłowych. Analiza badawcza literatury i przeprowadzona na przykładzie budynku w Poznaniu wykazała, iż zastosowanie rozwiązań lean prowadzi do większej skuteczności działań, wydajności, ograniczenia kosztów, wyższej jakości. Należy zwrócić jednak uwagę na czynniki wpływające na sukces oraz na bariery.
Building industry sector requires some changes, which will allow to adapt to contemporary trends, cost reduction, optimization of waste generation and consideration of sustainable development. The main aim of article is to present a lean management methods transfer from automotive to construction industry sector. Approach and used research methods: observation, source material analysys. Research analysys of literature and carried out on example of building in Poznań, shown that use of lean management solutions directly leads greater operational efficiency , cost reduction and quality. However, attention should be paid to factors affecting sucess and also barriers.
