Abstract: At the last decade of the 20th century, Womack et. Al introduced Lean concept to the industrial world. Since 1990 up to now, existed studies mostly have focused on lean production in the step of manufacturing, but in this research leanness concept has developed in the plant life cycle. In this paper leanness concept will be described as elimination of wastes in the phases of investment, plant design & construction(hardware), organization & systems design (software) and these three steps will be added to, elimination of previously described seven wastes in production step. For this purpose at first, the types of wastes in the above mentioned phases are defined by using Axiomatic Design methodology. After defining the types of wastes, a model for assessment of leanness is submitted. In this quantitative model, amount of leanness in each phase will be determined and combined to make a unique measure for total leanness. Dimensions of leanness are shown for quick understanding, by using a spider diagram. In the last section of the paper, the results of an example of the application of this model in fan industry are brought. This example shows the simplicity and powerfully of the model to determine the leanness in before production phases. © 2008 Authors all rights reserved.

The concept of "complexity" is familiar to most of project's managers, but it is not comprehended in the same way. although the complexity highlights negative points, but it may bring positive advantages which support the project. Researches conducted on this field show that the understanding of "complexity" between the researchers is different and it is mainly depends on their points of view. In fact, many identified aspects of the complexity in the literature are related to the aims of the research. In this paper, an attempt was made to describe the positive / negative features of the complexity of project using three approaches research literature (manufacturing and project complexity), interviews (deep interview with 20 experts) and questionnaire. The research was conducted on the Complex product and system (CoPS) projects. in addition, WH question technique was used. In conclusion, a 5p model (Purpose, Product, Process, People, Peripheral) has been introduced as the outcome of the study.
