Lean is not something we do. It’s something we live by.

Linbeck’s Lean Operating System (Lean) is an enterprise-­wide, integrated operating system based on eliminating waste on the jobsite, streamlining processes, and constantly finding ways to improve our construction operations. As a founding member of the Lean Construction Institute, we are passionate about implementing Lean principles so we can boost productivity, promote jobsite safety, improve schedule reliability, and build cost-effectively.

The core elements of Linbeck’s Lean Operating System include proactive problem solving, collaboration, and continuous improvement. Each of these is advanced through our implementation of the following tools and technologies:

  • Target Costing
  • Five S (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain)
  • Value Streams
  • Work Structuring
  • A3 Planning Template
  • Set-­Based Design
  • Real­-Time Metrics
  • Visual Systems through use of Lean Boards
  • Last Planner System
  • WOW Videos to eliminate waste
