Abstract

This research focuses on identifying waiting time in design process. This comprised the application of value stream mapping to identify existing flows and design waiting times. From this diagnosis, it was possible to propose recommendations reducing identified waste of time. This study demonstrates the viability of using the value stream mapping and to improve architectural designs process.ed technologies can be implemented in an integrated way in practice.

Keywords
