This is a rare opportunity for a firsthand look at Designing the Future. The Toyota Production System (Lean) is a philosophy and comprehensive array of tools that has transformed many major industries. For the Design and Construction industry, Lean offers a way to build high performance teams that are consistently able to: deliver good design; practice profitably; create loyal clients; and satisfy the aspirations of design professionals. Lean is arguably the most reliable method of achieving integration and collaboration in a team and has produced some extraordinary project outcomes. 

This tour will provide an overview of Lean principles followed by a walk of the production line to see these principles in action. We will conclude with a Q&A discussion focused on understanding what we observed and how it can be applied to Design and Construction. The AIA is hosting this tour in partnership with the Lean Construction Institute.
