					International workshop at Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. The
workshop is an activity in the Norwegian “Involvement in planning”
research project

May 2nd to 5th, 2011

Conceptualizing waste and work flow in lean
construction
Aim: How to conceptualise waste and work flow? To formulate a thorough
understanding of waste and work flow in construction related to production theory.
We aim to start the process of writing a white paper on the issue.




                                                                                     1
PROGRAM version. 01.05.2011
The preliminary program is built such that only the main introduction for each session is
detailed. The sessions will include short presentations to introduce each relevant topic for
all participants, leaving the majority of the time for open discussion. Moreover, the
program might be adjusted according to need during the workshop itself.
