Supplier and contractor perspectives on supply chain planning problems in construction: A multiple case study
2015 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Construction supply chain planning (SCP) is often associated with problems. An earlier study categorized the problems into material flow, communication, and complexity. The purpose of this study is to identify different construction supply chain actors’ perspectives on these SCP problems. Results show that all actors identify the problems but there are diverse opinions on their origin and cause. Links between the executional problems the site managers see and the SCP development problems seen by others are identified. One contribution is the importance of SCP in an early phase of the project including also actors outside the contractor.
