To ensure a project is completed on time and under budget, lean construction planning is the vastly superior approach. Lean construction projects are 70% more likely to come in under budget and 200% more likely to finish ahead of schedule. In order to maximize the efficiency in your lean construction projects, it’s important to streamline your pull planning process.
