Japan-DK Seminar 13/9 2019
Improvements by Construction Gemba Kaizen and i-Construction
This Japan-DK Seminar on ‘Construction Gemba Kaizen and i-Construction’ was held on September 13, 2019, in Copenhagen and was arranged by Build, AAU Cph. The findings from a Build project on ‘Construction Supply Chain Management’ and a seminar on February 26, 2019, in the Consulate-General of Japan in New York on ‘i-Construction as a new stage of construction in Japan’ were the inspirations for this seminar.
A discussion between four themes forms the framework for the seminar:
1) Challenges and visions for construction.
2) Construction Kaizen and improvements.
3) Building project ‘Postgrunden’ in Cph.
4) i-Construction, ICT, VDC, and robots.
The four themes are presented in a flow matrix of ‘Top - The paper world’ to ‘Bottom - The real world’ and from ‘Visions’ to ‘Construction projects’. The method of forwards and backwards analysis provides the conclusion.
The report summarises the 13 presentations and refers to presentations that are open on the AAU web.
In conclusion, today, it is difficult for the bottom-up approach to compete with the top-down approach. However, we miss the supplement from quick development and documented results with a direct influence on practice from the bottom-up approach, but today it has a low priority. It is important to focus more on the implementation of construction.
