Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 25, 2009
e-Builder, the leading provider of integrated capital program and project management software, announced today that it will host a webinar on Achieve Breakthrough Engineering and Construction Performance Using Lean Principles, on November 12th, 2009 at 1 p.m. ET. The webinar will be presented by Mr. Jeff Lukowski, P.E., CSCP and Mr. Michael Putzer, PMP both of FMI Corporation, consultants to the engineering and construction industry. Lukowski and Putzer will provide an introduction to the way organizations are demonstrating success by applying Lean in their project delivery processes. Lean has recently been gaining momentum as owners, engineers and contractors look to reduce the friction that is inherent in their shared business processes. To register, please visit https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/795488880.
Lukowski and Putzer will demystify the concept of Lean as it relates to individual firms as well as the complete engineering and construction supply chain. They will explain that while adopting Lean practices can improve the performance of a single entity, large-scale benefits are derived from the collaboration between owner, engineer and contractor. The information that will be discussed is based on the presenters history with Lean manufacturing principles, extensive engineering and construction field experience and also FMI research. Case studies will highlight the perspectives of both an individual firm pursuing Lean, and also how Lean methodologies are being adopted by multiple stakeholders on a single project or large capital program.
Whether you represent an engineering firm, a construction contractor, or a facility owner/operator, there are measurable efficiencies to be gained through the application of Lean methodologies and tools, including technology that can act as an enabler and streamline success with Lean implementations. The presenters address the unique culture of the engineering and construction industry and provide insight as to how the cultural change is necessary in successful Lean adoption. The discussion is relevant to a broad range of stakeholders, regardless of where they are engaged in the capital project supply chain.
