Construction industries are seeking to save cost and time in construction projects. Therefore they need a framework to adjust all activities and resources optimally, optimal utilization of resources is capable based on the EEE (Effectiveness, Efficiency, and Economy) of resources. Additionally, the virtual possibility of EEE is linked to the waste management of construction's resources. It means the reduction and elimination of wastages in Material, Equipment, labors, time and money. Wastages in construction are breaking down in these types: D.O.W.N.T.I.M.E or defects, overproduction, waiting, none utilized talent/resources, transportation, Inventory excess, Motion excess, and extra processing. The main aim of this study is the optimal utilization of construction's resources on the basis of methods which have been used in manufacture industries and utilization of Internet of Things (IOT) for closed monitoring and controlling of these resources to avoid wastages in execution process and gain the planned productivity, for this purpose we have used specific method for each resource individually and integrated them with IOT. The methods are: Just-In-Time (JIT-IOT) model for material management, 2-Total Productive Maintenance (TPM-IOT) model for equipment's optimization.3- (KaizenIOT) model for labor-management. Finally, the utilization of lean methods and technology in construction projects provided an optimal planning, implementation and monitoring & controlling of resources, which giving us better productivity, safety, quality and also give the time for site management team to focus on other tasks of project to gain the optimal result.
