AbstractThe objective of this paper is to introduce the concepts of Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and explain how these concepts could be applied to the Lean Project Delivery Process. Lean Project Delivery Process has been developed by the Lean Construction Institute and is based on the principles of applying the theory of Lean Production to construction projects. VDC has been developed by CIFE, Stanford University and is the use of multi-disciplinary performance models to the design and construction of capital facilities. This paper presents a guide to the practitioners on how to use the tools and principles of Virtual Design and Construction in the Lean Project Delivery Process. A short background of both the principles of VDC and Lean Project Delivery Process is presented. This is followed by a discussion about the benefits and challenges of applying VDC during the Lean Project Delivery process.
