The symposium is followed by Annual Dinner. The Annual Dinner started with keynote speech with focus on construction industry. Construction industry has long been critized for low productivity, poor quality and low levels of performance in relation to cost and time overruns. Lean construction has widely recognized as an effective approach to improve productivity and eliminate production wastes.
The keynote speech speaker, Dr. Sammy Wan, Past President of the Hong Kong Chapter of Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineer explained the application of lean in construction industry, how lean is applied in the construction project cycle, how lean tools can achieve a look ahead schedule and how to apply pull technique to convert the flow of resources from interrupted to uninterrupted with idle and waiting time consequently reduced.
There are over 80 participants in the dinner and we would like to express our sincere thanks to Dr. Wan for his inspiring speech
