Construction Projects are always unique, and risks rise from several different sources. These situations bring new opportunities to improve critical areas in a project. As a Project Management approach, certain phases require documentation processes for the client, in which if the documents are filled wrong it will take more time to resubmit and this will cause more delay in the process. LEAN principles were applied to improve the submit process. A need of document standardization was identified to improve the submittal process, the Fillable PDF’s tool was used to create the documents in an easy fill up PDF, also a series of Standard Operation Sheets were created for an easier comprehension of how to fill up the documents. After the standardization process, and the creation of the Standard Operation Sheets, the process was improved by 20% compared with the actual process.
