Abstract

There is a growing market demand for precast concrete elements in the New Zealand construction market. However, within so many improvements in the management, production technology, transportation, and quality assurance systems, the precast construction system remains one of the least developed systems with the minimum productivity and profit margins. This study aims to investigate how the lean management system could be implemented in the concrete precast plants to increase the productivity and organisation’s profit margin. To achieve successful application of the system, the study conducts a comparative analysis of existing lean approaches in literature, followed by face-to-face interviews. Then, a lean management system framework concludes to be implemented in the precast concrete plant to improve the plant productivity while increasing the profit.
