Abstract in another language

Utilising the invaluable knowledge of subcontractors and incorporating it to improve performance of construction supply chains is an important topic. Despite this, such integration in continuous performance programs largely fails. To overcome this weak subcontractor involvement a case study has been conducted. Its purpose was to investigate key challenges for weak subcontractor involvement within continuous improvement and to propose measures which could contribute to overcome the weaknesses identified. The findings show that traditional structures and practises within the industry as well as a mismatch of interests and expectations of participants leads to difficulties. Measures to overcome those challenges and enable a better involvement of subcontractors are proposed. Finally, real-life data served for the assessment of the developed measures. This investigation may help practitioners and scientists to better understand challenges arising for CI implementation and may help to find solutions for improving the performance of the entire IHB supply chain.
