A STRUCTURED LITERATURE REVIEW: VALUE STREAM MAPPING (VSM) IN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
MetadataShow full item record
For the past few years, almost every sector of the manufacturing and service industries have applied some form of lean methodology. Likewise, lean-based tools have been applied to simple and complex construction projects. Value stream mapping (VSM), as a lean tool for manufacturing, is used as a basic graphical tool that aims to describe production processes and to identify and reduce types of waste. In its current state, VSM is not being implemented as successfully in construction as it is in manufacturing due to fundamental differences between manufacturing and construction. This paper’s methodology uses a structured literature review to summarize the current state of VSM application in construction industry. By finding the connection among the current research will enable the adaptation of VSM for use in the construction industry and provide a theoretical framework of the applications of VSM in construction for further research.
