Abstract: The Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry is increasingly aware of the need to improve efficiency and effectiveness to thrive in an increasingly competitive marketplace. A key discovery in their search for improvements is the benefits of repeatability in both processes and products. However, although the latter has seen significant advances, such as the adoption of pre-assembly and standardised components and systems, the industry has experienced far greater difficulties identifying ways of capturing, understanding, and replicating work processes. The identification and removal of waste can only be achieved once the process has been captured. Their repeated use and development, combined with analysis by ADePT, enable the improvement of work practices and culture in terms of integration, decision-making and reductions in re-work.
