Nifla K | Reshma P

Abstract: Indian construction industry still follows the primitive work pattern, which generates poor management in resources, waste management, over budgeting and schedule lagging. To eliminate all the above-mentioned issues, construction industries are now adopting sophisticated tools and techniques like lean construction tool (L. P. S). Lean construction is as an effective management tool to enhance the productivity in construction field. Large research is being done in recent past and is an ongoing process to adopt lean principles from manufacturing industry to the construction industry. In this paper 3 construction companies were visited, and questionnaire survey analysis were done in order to find out the main barriers faced by the company for the effective implementation of lean. Barriers like Wastes in the construction site, management related wastes and resource related waste were graphically plotted and analyzed. Suitable lean construction tools required were implemented.
