    Capable-To-Promise for Segmented Customers in a CapacityConstrained Manufacturing EnvironmentManuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Companies operating in environments where demand supersedes production capacity often use some kind of customer segmentation to choose between orders. This calls for the need of methods for creating the best possible allocation of the capacity to different segments or customers, in order to maximize the company´s profit. In their need to fulfil this request, several companies have chosen to utilise the decision support offered by several advanced planning systems vendors, which aims at creating a more profitable utilisation of the resources with regard to the customer segments. The purpose of this study is to analyse the capable-to-promise functionality in a demand fulfilment process concerning segmented customers. A literature study is conducted and a process industry company, with finish to order production, is described and analysed. The company has experienced good results from using an APS’s demand fulfilment functionality. The main findings are the verifications of some theoretically expected benefits, such as customer service level and product mix composition.

    Third-party logistics in construction: Perspectives from suppliers and transport providers2015In: Proceedings of the 22nd EurOMA Conference: Operations Management for Sustainable Comeptitivness, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suppliers and transport providers are key parties in the construction supply chain, and their respective roles when employing third-party logistics (3PL) is investigated. The purpose is to analyze how they are affected by the 3PL solution in terms of their attitudes towards the use of 3PL, the experienced defects from the 3PL solution, and their level of supply chain management (SCM) maturity. This is done by a literature review and an explorative case study at a large construction project employing a 3PL solution. Results show a positive attitude and that they actively address SCM issues, whereas actual effects are inconclusive.

    Third-party logistics in construction: the case of a large hospital project2016In: Construction Management and Economics, ISSN 0144-6193, E-ISSN 1466-433X, Vol. 34, no 3, p. 174-191Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The construction supply chain is of temporary nature and complex, with many interactions between multiple actors in different construction projects. This challenging context typically leads to relatively higher costs and lower productivity, compared to other industries. Supply chain management (SCM) has been put forward as a mean to better handle this challenging context. As a part of SCM initiatives some construction industry stakeholders have turned to third-party logistics (TPL) providers, especially in large construction projects. The use of TPL providers is a new, and under-investigated, phenomenon in the construction industry. The main purpose of this study is thus to explore the use of a TPL provider in a large construction project and to analyse its resulting effects. Driving forces and possible concerns for implementing TPL are identified and the possibility for TPL to be a facilitator for implementing SCM in construction is investigated. The research is based on a literature review and an explorative case study of a large hospital project in Sweden, where the client and the main contractor have initiated the use of a TPL provider to coordinate sourcing and materials handling activities on site. The results show positive effects on establishing an effective interface between the construction site and the supply chain. The results also show that a TPL solution facilitates an increase in productive work at the construction site itself, a reduction of costs and an increased utilisation of site assets. On the downside, the study also shows a lack of SCM knowledge amongst the involved actors in the project, hindering them to reap the full potential of TPL.

    Third-party logistics in large construction projects: A SCM perspective2014In: Proceedings of the 21st EurOMA Conference: Operations Management in an innovative economy, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate the use of 3PL providers in large construction projects, and to identify main drivers and barriers, as well as the resulting effects, when implementing SCM by the use of 3PL providers. This is done by the means of a literature review and an explorative case study, the latter being a large hospital construction project. The results show positive performance effects in terms of increased productivity, resources utilization, and delivery performance, but also that there are challenges when it comes to organizational setting, policy adherence and supply chain coordination.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper seeks to extend existing manufacturing system concepts and develop new structured knowledge about international manufacturing networks by analysing the networks, classifying the configurations and identifying the capabilities. The design and operation of international manufacturing networks is an increasingly important issue for transnational corporations faced with rapid changes in global market opportunity, competition and new managerial mechanisms. Four international manufacturing networks in mechanical and process industries are analysed and a number of conclusions drawn: first, a novel configuration map is proposed; second, key strategic capability parameters are identified; third, networking trends and their implications for configuration are discussed. Finally, the paper explores strengths and weaknesses of the particular methodology adopted in this research.

    SUPPLY CHAIN REDESIGN IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY2006In: EurOMA 2006,2006, Glasgow, UK: EurOMA , 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the construction industry and the manufacture of apartment buildings - an area that not yet has been treated thoroughly from a logistics/supply chain management perspective. The recent enlargement of the European Union (EU) has changed the competition, wherefore pursuing the best network of manufacturing, supply and distribution facilities relative the marketplace is therefore on top of many managers -most wanted- list in the construction industry. We provide a literature review and also case studies showing how one large Swedish construction company is redesigning its supply chain, and the corresponding processes, to stay competitive in an ever more price sensitive EU market. The results of our research emphasize that there is an upward shift of value-adding activities in the construction supply chain, combined with more standardised and modularised products, which drastically change the ways of providing products to the final customer.

    Costs and benefits of logistics solutions in construction2017Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Third-party logistics (TPL) solutions are becoming a regular occurrence in urban construction projects. The industry is, however, still apprehensive regarding the benefits and costs of TPL solutions. The purpose of this study is therefore to investigate TPL benefits, costs, and what is needed in terms of supply chain management (SCM) maturity to realize these effects. This is done through an explorative case study at a large building project employing an in-house TPL solution. Results show that benefits can be realized, but that they come at a cost and that the main challenge is to reach a higher level of SCM maturity.

    Maintenance management in process industries:mapping current practices2010In: Proceedings of the 17th EurOMA conference, 2010, 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall purpose of this research is to map the maintenance management in three companies in the process industry sector and to analyse whether these companies apply a holistic perspective on their maintenance management. We have mapped our cases using the framework developed by Crespo Márquez et al. (2009) and our results show that even though maintenance is of utmost importance in the process industry, few companies have a strategic and holistic perspective on maintenance management.

    A Production System Classification Matrix: Matching Product Standardization and Production System Design2015In: Journal of construction engineering and management, ISSN 0733-9364, E-ISSN 1943-7862, Vol. 141, no 6, article id 05015004Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The potential benefits of using off-site production in residential construction have been highlighted in many studies, but the full potential of off-site production approaches is not always realized. This shortfall can be explained by the mismatch between market requirements and the output offered by the production system, in other words, a mismatch between the degree of product standardization and the design of the production system. This mismatch could be resolved through a classification matrix that aids decision makers in matching market requirements and the degree of product standardization with the degree of off-site production and production system design. This paper describes the development of a classification matrix that guides the decision-making process during the designing of new or re-designing of existing production systems in residential construction. An important aspect of the development was balancing the trade-off between productivity and flexibility so that products can be produced competitively. The merits of the classification matrix are exemplified by five case companies with different approaches to industrialization and off-site production.

    Classification of production systems for industrialized building: a production strategy perspective2013In: Construction Management and Economics, ISSN 0144-6193, E-ISSN 1466-433X, Vol. 32, no 1-2, p. 53-69Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose is to develop a matrix for classifying production systems for construction with various degrees of industrialization. Previous attempts to classify industrialized production systems for construction focus on dimensions such as the design process, the product technology, or the supply chain structure, but none of them acknowledge the importance of how orders are actually won in the market and that different market segments have different requirements. Using production strategy theory as a base, a matrix is developed linking market requirements, via the product offering, to the design of the production system. The matrix positions typical production systems based on their respective degrees of product standardization and volumes relative to the degree of offsite production. Similar to production systems in manufacturing, production systems for construction also deliver manufacturing outputs at different levels, indicating that the choice of production system will affect the competitiveness of the company. The applicability of the matrix is exemplified through three case illustrations of concepts for industrialized building, and these show that the matrix can be used to analyse the production systems’ relative strengths and weaknesses. The matrix can also be used as a guide when developing new, or adjusting existing, production systems for industrialized building so that they will match market requirements and offer competitiveness.

    Classification of production systems in construction: A multiple case study2013In: Proceedings of the 20th EurOMA Conference: Operations Management at the Heart of the Recovery / [ed] Fynes, B. and Coughlan, P., 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose is to validate a conceptually developed classificationmatrix for production systems in construction through a multiple case study. Bymapping five different cases producing multifamily houses along the dimensions product standardisation and production volumes and degree of off-site assembly, and compare their relativestrengths and weaknesses, it is possible to determine how the position in thematrix affects their competitiveness. The case study indicates that theclassification matrix is a useful tool to characterize construction productionsystems. Differences in competitiveness are exposed, and this can be used whendeveloping an already existing, or designing a new, production system.

    KPIs for measuring performance of production systems for residential building: A production strategy perspective2017In: Construction Innovation, ISSN 1471-4175, E-ISSN 1477-0857, Vol. 17, no 3, p. 381-403Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    This paper aims to define key performance indicators (KPIs) for measuring performance of production systems for residential building from a production strategy perspective.

    Design/methodology/approach

    A literature review is done to identify suitable competitive priorities and to provide grounds for developing KPIs to measure them. The KPIs are evaluated and validated through interviews with industry experts from five case companies producing multifamily residences. Furthermore, two of the case companies are used to illustrate how the KPIs can be employed for analysing different production systems from a manufacturing strategy perspective.

    Findings

    Defined, and empirically validated, KPIs for measuring the competitive priorities quality, cost (level and dependability), delivery (speed and dependability) and flexibility (volume and mix) of different production systems.

    Research limitations/implications

    To further validate the KPIs, more empirical tests need to be done and further research also needs to address mix flexibility, which better needs to account for product range to provide a trustworthy KPI.

    Practical implications

    The defined KPIs can be used to evaluate and monitor the performance of different production systems’ ability to meet market demands, hence focusing on the link between the market and the firm’s production function. The KPIs can also be used to track a production systems’ ability to perform over time.

    Originality/value

    Most research that evaluate and compare production systems for residential building is based on qualitative estimations of manufacturing outputs. There is a lack of quantitative KPIs to measure performance at a strategic level. This research does this, identifying what to measure, but also how to measure four competitive priorities through 14 defined KPIs.

    Performance measurement for production systems in construction2014Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    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.

    Advanced planning & scheduling systems: Effects for supply chain planning2013In: Proceedings of the 25th Annual NOFOMA Conference / [ed] Per Olof Arnäs, Göteborg: NOFOMA , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Advanced Planning   and Scheduling (APS) systems are argued to provide a number of positive   effects when implemented in manufacturing firms, e.g. in terms of planning   performance, cost performance, supply chain visibility. The purpose of this   paper is to analyse the effects from implementing and using APS systems for   supply chain planning, in terms of both experienced benefits and problems,   and type of planning context.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Our research is   based on a multiple case study, where 5 manufacturing firms that recently   have implemented APS systems to support tactical planning processes (e.g.   sales and operations planning and multi-site master planning), have been   studied. Case data (interviews, meetings, performance data, etc.) have been   collected during four years. Pattern matching and logical models are used in   the cross-case analysis.

    Findings

    The results show   differences in APS effects depending on what type of implementation focus and   APS use that have been employed. Results also show that the supply chain   context (organisation, individuals, technology) affects the APS effects.

    Practical   implications

    These results can   be used on the one hand in further research to establish a typology of   different ways to implement and use APS systems, and on the other by managers   in choosing the right APS approach depending on what effects that they are   striving for.

    Original/value

    There are few   accounts in academic research on the practical use of APS systems and their   effects on the planning process and performance. This research provides such   results.

    Centralised supply chain planning at IKEA2013In: Supply chain management, ISSN 1359-8546, E-ISSN 1758-6852, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 337-350Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to analyse the prerequisites and effects of centralised supply chain planning at IKEA, and to explore how the planning process, planning system, and planning organization make up a centralised planning approach.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper is based on a longitudinal case study of IKEA's implementation of global supply chain planning. The literature review generated a framework which identifies prerequisites for, approaches to, and the effects of and obstacles to centralised supply chain planning. This framework was used to analyse IKEA's supply chain planning before and after the implementation. Finally, the authors reflected upon the learning from IKEA and refined the framework.

    Findings – A number of prerequisites for centralised supply chain planning were identified: functional products, vertical integration, a dominating organization possessing the power and competence to enforce the implementation, and the use of one planning domain possessing all critical planning information. The direct effects of centralised supply chain planning were related to supply chain integration, standardisation, specialisation, and learning effects. Implementing centralised supply chain planning in an appropriate planning context led to several operational performance improvements. Obstacles were mainly related to human and organizational, as well as to software and data issues.

    Research limitations/implications – This is a first approach towards development of a framework of how to design, use and benefit from centralised supply chain planning. The developed conceptual model, which is refined through the case study, offers some generalizability in researching centralised supply chain planning.

    Practical implications – The findings show that centralised supply chain planning is a necessity for a large and growing, global supply chain striving for low-cost production and efficiency.

    Originality/value – IKEA is a unique case with its supply chain characteristics and recently implemented planning concept.

    Adapting Zaras Pronto Moda to a value brand retailer2015In: Production planning & control (Print), ISSN 0953-7287, E-ISSN 1366-5871, Vol. 26, no 9, p. 723-737Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The clothing sector is currently characterised by frequent assortment rotation in stores, a quick response product development and a focus on minimising end-of-campaign stock levels. This paper is based on a case study carried out at a value brand retailer, with a purpose to show how the company increased competitiveness in a market requiring more responsiveness. The case presented shows that the establishment of an adequate supply strategy for differentiated product segments, the introduction of mini-collections, the redesign of business processes (especially the new product development and the order fulfilment processes) and the redesign of the supply chain, lead to a sales increase and purchasing savings. Moreover, the study treats how a value brand retailer, facing different supply chain challenges compared with the leading brands, balance global and local production, lean and agile manufacturing and how it is possible to abandon the traditional two-campaign paradigm in favour of more rapid replenishment.

    Long-term capacity management: Linking the perspectives from manufacturing strategy and sales and operations planning2001In: International Journal of Production Economics, ISSN 0925-5273, E-ISSN 1873-7579, Vol. 69, no 2, p. 215-225Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Efficient long-term capacity management is vital to any manufacturing firm. It has implications on competitive performance in terms of cost, delivery speed, dependability and flexibility. In a manufacturing strategy, capacity is a structural decision category, dealing with dynamic capacity expansion and reduction relative to the long-term changes in demand levels. Sales and operations planning (S&OP) is the long-term planning of production levels relative to sales within the framework of a manufacturing planning and control system. Within the S&OP, resource planning is used for determining the appropriate capacity levels in order to support the production plan. Manufacturing strategy and sales and operations planning provide two perspectives on long-term capacity management, raising and treating different issues. In this paper, we compare and link them in a framework for long-term capacity management.

    APS for Tactical Planning in a Steel Processing Company2011In: Industrial management + data systems, ISSN 0263-5577, E-ISSN 1758-5783, Vol. 111, no 3-4, p. 608-628Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The main purpose is to describe and analyse the impact that  the implementation of an advanced planning system (APS) has on the tactical planning level at a steel processing company. This is done in terms of analysing changes in the tactical planning processes, effects on company performance, and how APS is used in a practical planning context.

    Design/methodology/approach: This research is based on a longitudinal case study in the process industry. The case company, a highend steel producer, has been studied during several years using a combination of data sources: literature reviews, interviews, archival records, attending meetings, workshops and seminars, etc.

    Findings: This case study points to the fact that implementing an APS and reorganizing the planning department and the planning processes are mutually dependent. The positive effects at the tactical planning level (in terms of service levels, fast and reliable order promises, more accurate forecasts) could not have been realized without the APS. On the other hand, APS could not have been effectively utilized without the organizational change.

    Research limitations/implication: The results presented in this paper are based on a single-case study, but in the context of our literature review and other case studies the findings are still valid and an important step towards better understanding of the practical use of APS.

    Practical implications: The process descriptions, lessons learnt and issues encountered in case studies like this should be helpful to practitioners on their way to implement APS, and companies seeking new ways to improve their planning can use this research to investigate the use of an advanced planning system.

    Originality/value: Studies on the practical use of standard APS software are still scarce. As such this paper provides enhanced knowledge and understanding on the use of APS in an industry setting.

    Classification of Production Systems for Construction: An Operations Strategy Perspective2012In: Proceedings of the 4th P&OM World Conference/19th Annual International EurOMA Conference, 2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims to classify different productionsystems for construction, based on operations strategy principles. Fourdifferent production systems have been identified through a literature reviewand mapped in a framework describing the degree of product standardization andvolumes and the degree of off-site production. Similar to production systems inmanufacturing, also production systems for construction deliver manufacturingoutputs at different levels, indicating that the choice of production systemwill affect the competitiveness of the company. Finally three cases aredescribed to exemplify the identified production systems and the framework.

    Effects from implementing advanced planning & scheduling systems for supply chain planning2011In: Proceedidngs of the 18th EurOMA Conference, 2011: University of Cambridge, UK, 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose is to analyze the effects from Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) systems for supply chain planning, both in terms of experienced benefits and problems, and the impact of the planning context and implementation approach. The research is based on a multiple case study of five manufacturing firms. It is concluded that the APS implementation focus and APS use impact three effect types differently if applying a process or system focus and more positively if applying an APS lead, compared to lag, approach. It also shows that the organisation, individuals, technology impact the effects, no matter APS implementation focus.

    Collaborative supply chain planning using electronic marketplaces2002In: Integrated Manufacturing Systems, ISSN 0957-6061, Vol. 13, no 8, p. 596-610Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to show how the functionality of electronic marketplaces can facilitate collaborative supply chain planning. Supply chain planning processes are identified and analysed using a supply chain management focus. The paper also gives a brief introduction to a framework for supply chain management and to the typical structure of electronic marketplaces. Furthermore, three collaborative supply chain planning scenarios are defined, and it is shown how collaborative supply chain planning typically could be implemented on an electronic marketplace by the means of a Web-based demonstration. As such, the paper shows how electronic marketplaces can be used to enable supply chain integration.
