Abstract in another language

The involvement of subcontractors with their specific knowledge to on-site processes in continuous improvement (CI) programs seems beneficial. Despite known advantages for developing corporate standards and processes, the collaboration between subcontractors and industrialised housebuilding (IHB) companies is low. The purpose of this research is to analyse the challenges faced when involving subcontractors in CI. To investigate the problem a two years case study has been conducted. The findings reveal that both conflicts of interest between main- and subcontractors and IHB practices combined with inherent structures, cause the challenges. A set of measures to overcome those is developed and proposed.
