Performance measurement for production systems in construction
2014 (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
This research focuses on performance measurement in construction and on defining quantitative metrics for typical manufacturing outputs (e.g. cost, delivery, quality and flexibility performance) within a production strategy framework. The metrics can be used to evaluate how different production systems perform in different areas of competition. A literature review is used to define both what manufacturing outputs that are relevant to measure and also how to measure those manufacturing outputs. The manufacturing outputs quality, cost (level and dependability), delivery (speed and dependability) and flexibility (volume, mix and expansion) are identified as important to measure when evaluating different production systems for production of multifamily residences, and key performance indicators (KPIs) are defined for each manufacturing output. The defined KPIs are derived from the literature review but also validated empirically through case studies. The main result of this research is a performance measurement system that can be used when evaluating different production systems in the construction industry.
