Improving Productivity in Building Construction - by Repetitions in Products, Process, and Organisationsdownload phd thesis
Productivity in construction is a trend topic both in the academia and in the industry. The aim of this research is to enhance the conditions for improving productivity in the fragmented building industry, by exploring the repetitions occurring within and across projects. The thesis by Baris Bekdik advocates that modular thinking of products, processes and organisations can be reapplied on new building construction projects. The application of a range of analysis tools, such as QCA, DSM and VSM, are presented to the question of modularisation opportunities and success factors in the construction industry.
