Different levels of integration between LC and other frameworks, tools, and methodologies, like, e.g., total quality management (Oakland and Marosszeky 2006), location-based planning (Kenley and Seppänen 2010), virtual design and construction (VDC) (J. Kunz and M. Fischer, "Virtual design and construction: Themes, case studies and implementation suggestions," CIFE working paper, Stanford University), visual management (Tjell 2016), six sigma (Plenert and Plenert 2018), sustainability (Carvajal-Arango et al. 2019), integrated project delivery (Alves and Lichtig 2020), and building information modeling (BIM) (Dave and Sacks 2020). ...
