ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Lean principles are positively impacting the construction sector globally. Significant improvements in operational efficiencies of construction organizations are being reported in USA, UK, Brazil, Scandinavia, Australia and other countries. Academic and practitioner communities are engaged in furthering the use of Lean principles all around the world. Indian construction sector has been exploring the use of Lean principles but implementation has largely remained experimental. Example projects are available in India that showcase convincingly the benefits that can be reaped by the Indian construction sector. The recent IITM-ILCE Lean Training & Implementation Programme 2013 implemented in nine Indian sites, convincingly demonstrated the advantages to be gained by adopting Lean principles in Indian construction. However, Indian construction companies and clients are yet to realize the full potential of Lean principles on Indian projects. The theme of this Conference is to explore avenues for Lean-based transformation of the Indian construction sector. Simply stated, the Conference will bring together construction experts from India and across the globe to provide a road map for mainstream implementation of Lean principles in India.

The inaugural conference, ILCC 2015 along the lines of IGLC (International Group for Lean Construction) and LCI (Lean Construction Institute, USA) Conferences, will become a regular event to forge ahead on the Lean implementation agenda in India. The Conference will bring together academia who are teaching and training in Lean and the practitioners from the Industry to discuss a plethora of relevant topics, all focusing upon transformation of the Indian construction sector, through Lean concepts.

The focus of the Conference will be on practical implementation of Lean construction in India.
