Abstract [en]

In recent years, attention has been placed on the logistics activities in constructionprojects in order to reduce total costs. The construction industry is experiencing poorproductivity, resulting from an inability of contractors, subcontractors, and suppliersto cooperate efficiently. Research on logistics in construction lacks a holisticperspective and tends to focus on one activity at a time. This research presents theBuilder’s SCOR model (BSCOR) to be used for logistics improvements inconstruction. The model is based on the Supply Chain Operations Reference Model(SCOR model) covering the total supply chain. The BSCOR model is empiricallyderived through five case studies at different construction sites over a period of fiveyears. This has resulted in a model covering the activities Source, Build, and Plan,that describes the flow of materials to and on the site and how ownership passes to theclient. With the BSCOR model, contractors can map the material and informationflows between supply chain members with standardized process definitions. It is alsopossible to precisely measure the supply chain performance and to know where to putimprovements efforts. The main intention with the BSCOR model is to help theindustry reduce costs and increase productivity.
