Abstract

Lean Construction is a recently developed construction project delivery approach that was adopted from Toyota. Its primary tenets are to streamline the production process and eliminate waste. Students in an undergraduate construction management program learn about and participate in Lean Construction exercises through classroom lectures, active learning, and an industry-led workshop. This paper continues the research that began in the in the winter quarter of 2013 and presents additional findings acquired during the winter 2014 quarter. The same three classroom games that students played to learn some basic Lean Construction fundamentals are continued in this paper to a new group of students. Learning outcome assessments were performed and the results are presented and compared with the previous results from the winter 2013 quarter.
