Streamlining Success: Lean Principles in Construction and Solar Industries
As former Board Chair of the MWCC, Bill knows all too well that Lean can be implemented in any industry. However, having spent over 10 years leading the Lean efforts for BP Solar in Frederick, Bill is intimately knowledgeable about the application of Lean in Solar and Construction. Here, Bill will discuss lean methods employed in Construction with project examples focusing on the Renewables Industry. With gigawatts of experience employing lean methods in the Solar Industry, Bill will discuss opportunities and obstacles.
The ability to create fast-paced teams in today’s project-oriented environment quickly and effectively is key to success. And the implementation of a lean framework (low waste) will improve productivity, quality and the speed of a project. Implementing new ways of working is tough. We will explore implementation strategies and key drivers of success including planning and project timeline. Resistance from within, especially “old school thinkers” and team motivation will be addressed.
Note: Concepts to be addressed, not in the order of importance. : Lean basics, waste reduction, Takt time, work flow, sequence of work, Standardized Work and Instructions, AIT (All In Time), Kaizen, problem solving, real-time monitoring and reaction, risk management.
