Abstract [en]

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.

Abstract [en]

Supply chain management (SCM) has been stressed as a remedy to many of the underlying issues in the construction industry. However, the positive examples where SCM has been successfully utilised and diminished the lingering issues in construction is scarce. The question is why. Previous studies have stressed the importance of planning both the construction project as such but also the supply chain and the logistics. As an important part of SCM, supply chain planning (SCP) focuses on planning different aspects of the supply chain through involving different members of the supply chain in the planning process. SCP in construction is scarce as the planning of the logistics in general. Failing to plan the supply chain, involving supply chain members in the planning, and integrating the processes of planning the supply chains and the construction project can be one reason for the low numbers of successful SCM adoption in construction. In improving the SCP in construction, this thesis develops a SCP framework for construction that involves the main contractor, subcontractors, and suppliers. The aim is to improve SCP, collaboration, and eliminate many of the common problems in construction through a SCM and SCP perspective.

The developed framework is based on an existing planning framework for sales and operations planning. This framework is generic and synthesises planning in general. It consists of identifying/developing: outcomes, input, organisation, process, key performance measurements, and IT-tools. It is thus necessary to investigate what these aspects means in a construction context. Four research objects will be fulfilled:

Objective 1. Identify common logistical problems and linkages between them

Objective 2. Develop a SCP process

Objective 3. Develop a SCP organisation

Objective 4. Identify performance measurements
