2016 (English)In: Proceedings from the 23rd EurOMA conference 2016, 19-21st ofJune 2013, Trondheim Norway, 2016Conference paper (Other academic)
Supply chain planning (SCP) can be a facilitator for involving supply chain members in improving operations. Lack of integrating supply chain members has been argued to cause a lack of communication and low productivity. The purpose is to develop an organisation and process for SCP in construction, which is done via a focus group study with participants from key supply chain members. The contributions include a suggestion of how to organise SCP in construction, containing inputs, outcomes, process descriptions, meetings, etc. The main outcome of the SCP process is a balanced material delivery schedule, updated regularly, integrating supply chain members.
