MDM as a Process Mapping Tool in Lean Construction
This paper discusses the topic of mapping processes in lean construction and illustrates the application of the Multi-Domain Matrix (MDM) as a process mapping tool using the example of a plumbing installation process design. The objective of the MDM application is to facilitate process mapping through deduction of dependencies and to provide conclusions for future state map generation based on analysis of the process’ underlying structure.
