Summary
"This text preaches a practical approach that considers ways to improve construction processes in both traditional and lean environments. For non-lean environments, the authors explain how industrial engineering techniques can improve cost effectiveness and quality by optimizing at the task level. For lean environments, he provides a framework for integrating various techniques that will optimize performance to an even greater extent at the project level. These techniques enhance the use of resources to improve the quality of the built environment and with it, profitability"--Provided by publisher
