Abstract

Lean Management in construction and Green Construction approach seems to be an alternative route towards the
sustainable construction. It has been introduced to minimize wastages as the main objective. Recently, a problem such as cost overruns, low productivity and quality occurs frequently in constructions that need to be addressed by the project stakeholders. The management principles and techniques such as Total Quality Management (TQM), Value Stream Mapping (VSM), Critical Path Method (CPM), Building Information Modelling (BIM), Just In Time (JIT) and 5S are some of the lean tools that are implemented to improve the construction process. Hence,
through these various lean tools, it is believed that overall construction project performance will improve. This
paper evaluates the issues and overview of current lean approaches in green construction agenda. The technical
and human issues revealed will then be map to form the framework of implementing a Lean Management in
Construction.
