The demand in construction projects to improve their productivity is increasing. While meeting the traditional objectives in project management (time, cost and quality), the process of deliverable for construction projects need to be examined and improvised. Lean construction is a potential approach to be adopted in the production of Industrialised Building System (IBS) components. This paper is presented findings from case study conducted for three (3) manufacturers for precast concrete system in Peninsular Malaysia. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) was applied in this study to document the process involved in the productions of IBS structural components. VSM documentation is helping the authors to scrutinize the flow and map the value stream for the production process of IBS components. Results shows that there are some room for improvement by adopting lean management in order to the increase value for IBS components. Further research need to be conducted to develop a structural framework for integrating lean management in the manufacturing of IBS components.
