||The ability to manage a lean supply chain that contains no non-value addingelements is the ultimate challenge. The research behind the paper's findingsis based on the production of functional process models adopting IDEFØmethodology to portray information flows, participants, organisations andIT use. Key participants in 11 projects contributed to the research andsubsequently verified the models. Analysis was then performed on themodels, including checks for consistency and process integrity. A genericmodel was developed from the best practice elements of all 11 projects,alongside changes in construction procurement and out of sector bestpractice industrial design and production. The result is a new project genericprocess model that could form a blueprint for subsequent constructionprojects. The research continues through modelling and costing differentproject scenarios so that non-value adding activities can be isolated andeliminated from the supply chain.
