AGC San Diego Education & Safety Training Catalog July - December 2015 Unit 1: Variation in Production Systems is an introductory course in the Lean Construction Education Program. This halfday, instructor-led course teaches the concept of variation. Unit 5: Lean Supply Chain and Assembly is a one-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of lean supply chain and assembly. Following this course, participants will be able to: • Define the different types of variation • Explain the concept of throughput • Distinguish the concepts of throughput and work in progress • Describe the role of variation in production operations • List sources of variation in construction settings • Explain variation mitigation techniques • Contrast variation mitigation techniques Following this course, participants will be able to: • Differentiate between traditional procurement practices and lean supply chain applications • Identify waste and value-adding activities within the supply chain and assembly • Evaluate the impact of using lean supply chain on waste elimination, continuous flow and site operations pull • Identify strategies needed at the project and company levels to support the lean supply chain • List examples of process improvements to the lean supply chain • Expand lean beyond the individual project • Create a value stream map to diagnose and improve the supply chain Unit 2: Pull in Production is a half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of pull as a means to reliable production workflow. Following this course, participants will be able to: • Compare batch-and-queue and continuous-flow production systems • Distinguish push systems from pull systems • Describe the impact of pull on production systems • Explain pull strategies in construction operations Unit 3: Lean Workstructuring is the first of two units that introduces the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half-day, instructor-led course describes the process of Lean Workstructuring. Following this course, participants will be able to: • Apply the methods and tools utilized in pull planning • Describe the concept of Lean Workstructuring • Outline the desired outcomes of Lean Workstructuring • Describe the characteristics and application of the Last Planner® System Unit 4: The Last Planner® System is the second of two units introducing the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half-day, facilitator-led course shows how to conduct make-ready and weekly work planning sessions. Following this course, participants will be able to: • Apply the Last Planner System on a project • Hold make-ready and weekly work planning sessions • Calculate, track and analyze percent plan complete for a project Unit 6: Lean Design and Pre-construction is a half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concepts of valuebased management, lean in the design process and relational contracting. Following this course, participants will be able to: • Distinguish between the varying definitions for design • Define value & commonly used methods to maximize it • Discuss waste & commonly used methods to minimize it • Differentiate between traditional project methods and lean design • Explain the various lean tools used in design and how to deploy them Unit 7: Problem-solving Principles and Tools is a six-hour, instructor-led course that describes the Lean Problem Solving Process and illustrates how to use tools to solve problems in a lean manner. Following this course, participants will be able to: • Define the difference between traditional and lean problem solving • Describe how to create a team environment to solve problems • Explain how to create trust to avoid problems • Describe Observation Walks • Identify root causes of problems Individual Units Starting September 2015 Full Program in 1 Week November 2015 AGC Member: $175 AGC Journeyman: $0 Non Member: $225 Instructor: Bruce C.
