Abstract [en]

There is a current debate among construction researchers that resources and materials are not efficiently coordinated between projects, which in the long-run can negatively affect productivity and profitability. Other industries have improved resource utilisation with a hierarchical perspective on planning and tactical planning, the MPC perspective (Manufacturing Planning and Control). Adopting this way of planning among construction contractors would allow for improved coordination and resource utilisation as an overview of the project portfolio is taken. However, this perspective is new to construction contractors and learnings need to be gathered for understanding MPC in a construction context. The purpose of this paper is by taking a MPC perspective to increase the understanding of how resources and materials can be coordinated within a contractor’s project portfolio on a tactical level. The study is based on case studies within two Swedish contractors. The study presents a structure for how to include a tactical planning process within a contractor’s overall planning and what the main components are of this process.
