Abstract

The purpose of this paper is comparing five Maturity Models (MM) developed to measure the company’s adherence to Lean Construction (LC) principles. Methods were applied to the same project and results show that project classification was equivalent in the five systems for LC principles adherence. This MM have differences between origins, scope, application and results presentation, showing the diversity existent in LC philosophy. For this case study, all five methods showed adherence to lean principles and the results are graphically presented to easily compare the obtained results from the application of them.
