Abstract

Abstract: Waste in construction projects indicate that waste can arise at any stage of the construction process from beginning, right through the design, construction and operation of the built facility. Waste in the construction industry has been the subject of numerous research projects around the world in recent years. It is commonly recognized that a very high level of waste subsists in construction. The following factors are considered to reduce the waste in the construction industry such as site time and cost. The objective of this study is to minimize the construction waste through lean construction principles and improve the site productivity using work sampling. Lean Construction considers construction wastes as potential wastes that hinder flow of value to the client and should be eliminated. Mapping out the activities in the manufacturing process with cycle time, downtime, in process inventory, material moves, information flow paths, helps to envision the current state of the process activities and guide towards the future desired state. The process usually includes the physically mapping of the current state while also flowing on where you get to or the future state map, which can serve as the foundation for the other lean strategies. Minimizing material wastage would not only improve project performance and enhance value for individual customers, but also have a positive impact on the national economy. Keywords: Lean Technology, Waste Minimization, Construction Industry, SPSS
