BIM & Lean Courses

BIM & Lean Education Courses will be available following BIMForum. When registering for courses, please note the times to avoid signing up for multiple classes occurring simultaneously. Since the BIM Education program classes are 8 hours each, only two classes can be taken during the training days. Lean Units 1-4 are four hours each so an individual can sign up for Unit 1-4.

Courses To Be Held After the Fall BIMForum
Participants will receive the Participant’s Manual for the respective unit, and all course materials. Lunch will be provided for classes. Individuals interested in these classes are encouraged to register as soon as possible, space is limited and it is anticipated that these programs will sell out.

BIM Unit 1: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling, 3rd Edition

An Introduction to Building Information Modeling (3rd Edition) Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the industry’s best practice and generates groundbreaking innovations, driving the industry to a model-based process that encourages collaboration from owners, designers, general contractors and all specialty trades. AGC’s Unit 1: An Introduction to Building Information Modeling is a full-day course that provides a comprehensive overview of BIM practices and terminology while introducing important concepts necessary to understand how BIM is changing the construction process.

BIM Unit 2: BIM Technology, 3rd Edition

BIM Technology (3rd Edition) Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the most exciting developments in the construction industry, driving the industry to a model-based process that encourages collaboration from owners, designers, general contractors and all specialty trades. Unit 2: BIM Technology is a full-day course designed to provide a neutral introduction to BIM tools. Throughout the course, tools are introduced as they relate to the functions they perform, as well as particular phases in a project where they have the strongest capabilities. By understanding these differences, it is possible for each attendee to determine what questions need to be asked prior to making an investment in technology.

BIM Unit 3: BIM Project Execution Planning, 3rd Edition

BIM Project Execution Planning (3rd Edition) Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the most exciting developments in the construction industry and it is rapidly gaining acceptance. Unit 3: BIM Project Execution Planning is a full-day course that examines BIM and contract terminology to determine best practices for integrating BIM use into project execution planning. Core project execution planning activities are discussed and practiced to help participants become BIM champions within their organizations.

BIM Unit 4: BIM Adoption, Implementation and ROI, 3rd Edition

BIM Adoption, Implementation, and ROI (3rd Edition) Building Information Modeling (BIM) is transforming the construction industry and it is rapidly gaining acceptance. Unit 4: BIM Adoption, Implementation, and ROI is a full-day course that provides a foundation for participants to establish and execute the BIM process, facilitate its adoption, and achieve integration on a single project and at a company level to execute multiple BIM projects simultaneously. These tools will help establish participants as BIM champions within their organizations.

 

Lean Unit 1: Variation in Production Systems

Unit 1: Variation in Production Systems is an introductory course in the Lean Construction Education Program. This half-day, instructor-led course teaches the concept of variation. Following this course, you will be able to:
• Define the different types of variation
• Explain the concept of throughput
• Distinguish the concepts of throughput and work in progress
• Describe the role of variation in production operations
• List sources of variation in construction settings
• Explain variation mitigation techniques
• Contrast variation mitigation techniques

Lean Unit 2: Pull in Production

Unit 2: Pull in Production is a half-day, instructor-led course that explains the concept of pull as a means to reliable production workflow. Following this course, you will be able to:
• Compare batch-and-queue and continuous-flow production systems
• Distinguish push systems from pull systems
• Describe the impact of pull on production systems
• Explain pull strategies in construction operations

Lean Unit 3: Lean Workstructuring

Unit 3: Lean Workstructuring is the first of two units that introduces the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half-day, instructor-led course describes the process of Lean Workstructuring. Following this course, you will be able to:
• Apply the methods and tools utilized in pull planning
• Describe the concept of Lean Workstructuring
• Outline the desired outcomes of Lean Workstructuring
• Describe the characteristics and application of the Last Planner® System

Lean Unit 4: The Last Planner® System

Unit 4: The Last Planner® System is the second of two units introducing the Last Planner® System (LPS). This system was developed by the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) to plan projects in a way that produces predictable workflow and rapid learning. This half-day, facilitator-led course shows how to conduct make-ready and weekly work planning sessions. Following this course, you will be able to:
• Apply the Last Planner System on a project;
• Hold make-ready and weekly work planning sessions; and
• Calculate, track and analyze percent plan complete for a project

 

Cancellation Policy: A full refund will be given to cancellations made 14 calendar days prior to each class. After such time, no refunds will be given. Replacements are acceptable.

AGC reserves the right to cancel programs up to 10 days prior to start date if a minimum number of attendees is not met.
