tags Development sector in India is 1 sector which is comparatively the most unorganized sector. Knowing of the past as properly as present practices, have attain to a specific degree of conclusion that development sector practices in India are inadequate and its efficiency will carry on to decline as tasks grow to be far more uncertain, complex and pressed for velocity. Also building market has an unfortunate record on innovation when in contrast to other industries this kind of as manufacturing.

The troubles of building sector are effectively identified. Organizations in India fairly concentrate on the scheduling and arranging of the building projects but in actuality lead to cost and time more than runs. To steer clear of such over runs, high quality is disregarded and subsequently gets deteriorated. Occupational security is notoriously worse than in other industries. Often due to inferior operating conditions, there are also work force shortages in building sector. All these variables results into lower returns and reduction of massive projects to global firms indicating real issues of competitiveness in construction firms in India.

Construction projects involve many groups this kind of as owners, designers, standard contractor, sub-contractors and suppliers their coordination is essential to the achievement. There is a pressing need to have to produce and boost present construction procedure.

Output of the construction tasks has two key considerations:

Productivity (In terms of price, time and material utilised)

High quality (Materials used and of the final solution)

Manufacturing has often been the reference point on innovations for other industries. Another growth trend in manufacturing which is getting a great influence is Lean Management, Lean notion originates from manufacturing industry imagined of by Eiiji Toyoda and Taiichi Ohno who studied the manufacturing technique of Ford Motors.

Lean Management by means of its Complete Flow Management (TFM) views that the organizations need to be analyzed through its various flows like from buy to income, from raw supplies to delivery etc. and not by means of departments. This will buttress the present CPM/PERT methods utilised in the sector there by minimizing the Via Put Time (TPT).

Inventory is managed on the basis of the schedules planned but discovered final results exhibits that it both end up above stocking or stock out circumstances, which are the two key factors of the stock devil. Each are equally harmful which impact the bottom line earnings of the organization. Lean Management principles, by means of its Complete Service Management (TSM) model helps organizations create individual Stock Versions for Raw components, Function In Progress and so forth. foremost to JIT across the supply chain. Inventory is no a lot more in the warehouse but unloaded right in the supermarkets created to point of use.

Total High quality management (TQM) would maintain a track on the variance between expected good quality requirements and the resulting requirements in the continual basis. All the tools integrated well inside the organizations will lead to more practical options to let alone cost and time over runs in building tasks.

Prior observations on web sites and also of organizations have indicated that wastages in development business in India are quite substantial and procedure improvement may help it turn out to be much more effective and aggressive in India as properly as globally.

Deciding on the rules and Lean tools most suited to the Indian building market are of utmost significance.

The formulation of theoretical basis (Model) for lean construction by abstracting the core ideas of Lean Management by using it as supply of innovation also integrating it with resources of current project management and applying them to the management of development processes is important to profitability in the construction sector.

  2. can you be a property developer with a construction management degree?
    And if i was to be a construction/project manager would it be enjoyable if you really were interested in building things or is it a waste of time and depressing ???

  3. should a construction project manager have engineering background (bachelors degree in engineering)?

    I didn’t go to college so I had to learn this junk on the fly. just my opinion but if your not a quality multi Tasker and r one of those people who need to directly focus on a task without any distraction don’t even bother getting into this field. if you from new York you better quickly learn the importance of dominating and staying ahead of all submittals and RFIs. be all over making sure everyone that needs latest drawings has them. so Many changes. fall behind in the submittal process can bury you quickly

  9. SexyBuilder1888

    @xxhasudin i graduate in 2012, dont worry its all good

    less competition since theres very few going into construction

  10. I have worked in consulting business as a mechanical eng. for almost 5 years I had enough fun but there was always something missing: interaction with different people. Thats why, I want to go in to construction management. I understand it is very challenging but at the end rewarding and energizing career as well.
    I have a question to those who have been in this business for awhile, do you think it would be a problem for a construction manager with not having a Structural Eng. or Architectural background? I know you dont have to be but it seems like unwritten rule. What are your thoughts?? Thanks!

  11. Just wondering why u need good grades ? Does it really help you in your every day life ? I believe the only thing the matter is the person "passion" for the job or duty.

  12. hazardousmango

    @lameengo its expected to increase by 25 percent in the coming years, because of the economies flip around. I’m going to college for it now and all my fathers siblings own a successful business in L.A. and make more than 80,000 a year depending on what they do.

  13. There are a ton of schools offering this curriculum. Just type in Construction Management Programs when searching the web. In Michigan Ferris, Eastern Michigan & Michigan State University offer accredited bachelor programs. I know some community colleges offer construction management classes, and Oakland University. Some out of state programs I know of are: Purdue, M.S.O.E., Ball State etc…

  14. Alex Veillon

    Anyone know the courses needed for this major? I can’t find any curriculum’s anywhere

  15. Ive been in the trades my whole life from framing to concrete. I was considering going to school for construction management, do you think it would be worth the time and money? should i just work up the ranks? what are my options with the degree and experience?

  16. I majored in Construction Management at Northern Iowa and I feel like I made a bad choice because of this economy the construction industry has been hit the hardest. I graduate in 2012 hopefully the job outlook will be better then.

  17. I remember watching this video when I started college. I kept hearing from everyone "you wont get a job after college" and i won’t lie it kind of scared me. however after transferring to CSUS my passion grew bigger. I am now part of the commercial team for the ASC student competitions. My program at Sacramento State has had a 100% job placement for the past 4 years. The key to this is… INTERNSHIPS, INTERNSHIPS, INTERNSHIPS… make your-self marketable!

  18. Kiyoko Kamiyama

    I would like to take Construction engineering and management as my program. Can i take a PE?

  19. I have my own commercial construction company. I do NOT recommend construction career to anyone. Construction is a pain.

  20. tawana chaitezwi

    @xxhasudin i aslo graduate 2012 cum to australia if u cant find anythin the economy has actually been strong cos of construction………….and thez more goin on every 2 seconds andnew towns being built…..

  21. Most CMGT programs have a pretty solid level of technical mathematics, engineering, and physics in the coursework. In addition to real estate law, business law, international business law, accounting, and of course management and leadership training, haha.

  22. guyz whats your opinion about construction management major ? does it a good choice?

  23. Laura Cataldo

    There are a few options – Construction Engineering and Management and Civil Engineering programs are the most common. What state are you located in?

  24. This has been an excellent video. but i’m looking forward on becoming a civil engineer. Do you guys have a day in the life video like this for civil engineer?

  25. i graduated in 2010 from Clemson university with a Construction Science and Management Degree. i went into highway construction for 3.5 years as a project engineer. Now i am a Project Manager with a Local company mostly working at government facilities. its a challenging job but rewarding when you see it all completed.

  26. One more thing i want to open my own business company where can i start and how can i start ?

  27. Caramon Majere

    Whatever you do, don’t fill your curriculum with communications classes!

    As a CM with 13yrs exp, you MUST know the trades! I don’t care how well you communicate. If you don’t know HOW to build something, you’re gonna be the laughingstock of the project.

    I benefited from growing up in this industry. Most of you will have to hire on somewhere to get your experience. However you do it, it will pay off immediately.

    I can only assume that this guy can fill out RFIs, POs and daily logs with the best of them, but how will he handle the carpenters questions about header size or the excavator’s question about the manhole inverts? Will he simply pass off those questions to the engineers? Constantly doing that brings your value in question.

    Also, don’t show up on site wearing a suit and tie…..the men don’t want to talk to a suit. They want to talk to another contractor. Lace up your boots, cupcake. You may just have to get dirty.

  28. Thank you very much for this video! I am a trained Architect and Engineer and have always been drawn towards the organization of projects. The idea of becoming a project manager has always been in the back of my mind, but difficult to confirm as it is hard to clearly see all aspects of the position. You’ve successfully accomplished a nice, quick overview which will allow me to better research this profession. Thank you!
