Abstract [en]

Construction companies traditionally try to optimize their resource efficiency to minimize costs. Today's demand for value stream optimization along the whole supply chain cannot be resolved by that approach. To be able to strengthen the performance of the fragmented construction, supply chain measuring flow efficiency is essential to meet the customer's demand of shorter lead times. A literature study and an exploratory case study on a construction company and its supplier have been done to map existing key performance indicators (KPIs) for measuring both resource and flow efficiency. The outcomes from the literature study show possible KPIs and the connections between them. Results from the case study indicate that basic data for flow efficiency measurements exist in companies but these are underutilized. Balancing resource and flow efficiency is a challenge for all companies. Decisions made on how to manage production and construction affect this balance, thus creating a dynamic situation where the balance is different between building projects.
