Indian Lean Construction Conference (ILCE 2017)
July 27 - July 29
Adopting Lean concepts has enabled several construction projects around the world to experience significant improvements in productivity and profitability. Internationally, Lean Construction is becoming more and more popular to solve the many ailments of conventional project delivery. Today these concepts are also being implemented in the Indian Construction arena and many leading players have come forward to implement Lean Concepts in some form or other. To popularize the concepts of Lean Construction in India we had made a beginning with ILCC 2015 (Indian Lean Construction Conference) held in Mumbai in Feb, 2015 (http://web.iitm.ac.in/ilcc2015 ). It featured a one day Workshop and a two-day Technical Conference, which were both well attended. ILCC 2017 is being organized to continue the Lean journey in India.
The main objective of ILCC 2017 Conference is to provide a platform where Lean construction practitioners – owners, contractors, consultants, coaches, academics, can share their experiences and go further on the path of successfully applying Lean concepts to construction. In addition, the conference will also provide an opportunity for academics to present their ongoing research findings in the construction field and interact with industry practitioners to enable industry-academic collaboration in this field. The conference will comprise International and Indian keynote and invited presentations, academic paper presentations and industrial case-studies on Lean principles across Planning, Engineering, Procurement and Construction. The conference is organized along the lines of IGLC (International Group for Lean Construction) and LCI (Lean Construction Institute) conferences which have been key events in the international arena and which have enabled wider adoption of Lean concepts in construction. A Pre-conference Workshop will focus on practical implementation aspects with sessions from leading Lean coaches and practitioners.
