With the future bringing more of the same challenges of schedule compression, pricing pressure and manpower shortages, the industry will be forced to innovate. Most contractors are trying to solve these massive industry issues with tactical solutions. This session will discuss how contractors are able to do this through value stream mapping, product standardization, design for assembly, manufacturing and installation principles, supply chain management and other tools broadly used outside of construction.
