Since 2009, Linköping University has been running the Builder’s SCOR project. The project is supported by the research collaboration Brains&Bricks where Linköping University, the construction company Peab, and the municipality of Katrineholm participates to enhance the efficiency of the construction industry. The Builder’s SCOR model (BSCOR) is based on the SCOR model (Supply Chain Operations Reference Model) developed and supported by Supply Chain Council (SCC, 2012, SCOR, 2010). The BSCOR project is divided into several sub-projects and is still on-going. This paper reports on the third phase in the project where the Make-process of SCOR is converted to BSCOR in terms of process definitions. The first phase, the pilot study, used the SCOR model in a construction setting and evaluated how useful the model was. This work is reported in Johansson and Persson (2011) and Persson et al. (2009), where the need for something very similar to the BSCOR model is argued. The second phase included a case study of a mid-range construction project (turnover of € 1 – 10 million) where the SCOR-processes Source and Deliver were studied. This resulted in new definitions of processes and metrics in order to take the unique conditions of the construction industry into consideration. The work is reported in Persson and Thunberg (2012) and Thunberg (2011). The third phase, in this paper, studies the Make-processes in construction through two case studies of midrange construction projects. This paper outlines the results of the case studies and defines the processes in Make at the three different levels of BSCOR. As the last phase, Deliver and Plan will be studied through interviews with personnel from construction companies as well as from companies that order and buy construction projects. A study on adapting the Return-process is not conducted as the results from Thunberg (2011) indicate that faulty construction materials are seldom returned. With the four phases outlined here, a complete BSCOR model will be defined and used in several construction projects. The aim is to broaden the scope of use to other construction companies outside the collaboration of Brains&Bricks.
