Main Theme: Quality Growth Beyond Excellence through INNOVATION
Highlight of Symposium
ISSC AQM Symposium is the flagship ISSC event in 2018. The theme of the symposium is "Quality Growth Beyond Excellence through Innovation". The symposium spans from application of QFD, LEAN, TRIZ and Extenics (可拓法) to the exploration of enormous growth opportunities through innovation. In this symposium, we strongly believe that audiences can gain new insights and inspiration on how to survive in this fast changing century, like a butterfly. We are honorable to invite the pioneers from different disciplines to speak in this symposium.
Highlight of Keynote Speech
The 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.
In this keynote speech, the speaker will explain 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.
