During the period January 12th to June 11th 2010 an examination work with the aim to improve the logistic situation at a construction site in Motala Sweden, owned by Peab was in progress. The background is the lack of general logistic thinking and knowledge in the construction field. By observing purveyances, as many as possible, data will be gathered and processed according to the SCOR reference manual. With the knowledge of Perfect Order Fulfilment, Source Cycle Time, Plan Cycle Time, Cost to Source, and Cost to Plan best practice suggestions of how to improve the logistic situation could be presented to Peab. Perfect Order Fulfilment will be presented as a whole for the construction site but also for each supplier and transporter individually.
Perfect Order Fulfilment, Source Cycle Time, Plan Cycle Time, Cost to Source, and Cost to Plan are metrics that Peab is interested of getting values of. But those metrics are primarily developed for the industrial field (so as SCOR in total) and not adapted for the construction field. This examination work also tries to make an analysis of how well SCOR can be applied in the construction field. Some processes and metrics must beredefined and added to SCOR to be able to apply SCOR in the construction field. Two new metrics to apply are % of Notify in Time and % of On-Time Delivery. A Return Resource process shall also be added in a future construction-SCOR. Lastly the % of Orders Delivered in Full metric and Plan, Source, Make, and Deliver must be object of a future study.
Another project at the construction site, going on simultaneously with this examination work, aims to use a third-part-transporter with a cross docking system for transportation of goods in to the construction site. The goods come from the supplier into the third-part-transporter where it is repacked as the construction site wants it. Using a third-part-transporter can reduce the number of deliveries to the site. Extra costs are added to the goods (inventory costs at third-part-transporter, repacking costs, and transport costs). The examination work will also try to analyze how well the thirdpart-transport system works and if it is cost-effective. One way to compare the use of a third-part-transporter and not having a third-part-transporter is to analyze how often goods are moved at the site. With a frequency study the number of movements was analyzed and costs associated with these movements were calculated. If the number of movements for goods that arrives with a third-part-transporter is lower they have an advantage compared to normal transporters.
