BIM 360 & Lean 8 Wastes
As we move into 2021, let’s focus on lowering our DOWNTIME otherwise known as Defects, Overproduction, Waiting, Non-Utilized Potential, Transport, Inventory, Motion, and Extra Processing.
Overcoming the 8 wastes of LEAN, which drives schedule and budget, is often a matter of getting the right information to the right people at the right time. When there is a lag in any one of these 8 areas, project delays and overruns occur.
That’s the purpose of the Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC), a platform developed to move information between teams quickly and easily—and drive out DOWNTIME. ACC is a platform of shared knowledge integration that connects design through construction.
Through this platform, you can eliminate unnecessary movement of products, people and materials, eliminate rework and wasted time, minimize excess products and materials and better utilize enterprise skills and knowledge.
Now is the time to get the right information to the right people at the right time. Take a proactive step to Optimize the Whole, Remove Waste, Focus on Process & Flow, Generate Value, and always look for Continuous Improvement.
Whether you are new to LEAN or a Kaizen Master, U.S. CAD is here to help unleash creativity and drive the AECO industry into the next wave.
