The Lean Construction Institute, (LCI), founded in August 1997, is currently doing research to develop knowledge regarding the design and implementation of project based production systems in the design, engineering, and construction of capital facilities. Lean Project Delivery System (LPDS) model consists of 13 modules, 9 of which are organized in 4 interconnecting triads or phases extending from project definition to design to supply and assembly, plus 2 production control modules and the work structuring module, both conceived to extend through all project phases, and the post-occupancy evaluation module, which links the end of one project to the beginning of the next.
