Abstract in another language

Industrialized housebuilding (IHB) companies prefabricate wall-, ceiling- and roof elements or modules from forest-based products in plants and assemble them on-site. To collect and analyze data from on-site processes is currently a challenge, as common methods do not provide accurate statements to interventions effects, are not reliable enough or are too cost- or time consuming for periodical performance management.
In order to develop an improved performance management for an IHB on-site context and to enable a continual improvement of construction processes and building systems this research aims (1) to investigate current IHB performance measurement and (2) to analyse the needs for improving performance assessment for various production strategies. In this context a pivotal role is given to improvement potentials through the usage of digitalisation concepts.
Qualitative interviews with IHB companies from Central Europe are conducted and specific cases are selected to collect insights from various IHB companies’ strategies. Further, prevailing concepts for improving IHB performance measurement are developed.
Research reveal the need for performance management systems (PMS) to better cope with present real on-site processes and for supporting their controlling. Improvement potentials are identified in the translation of a company’s business strategy to critical performance variables for on-site work. A further finding is the need for application scenarios for digital technologies collecting and analysing on-site data.
As a results of this work new PMS will be developed according to IHB companies’ needs. These may then better support decision in the construction processes and improve overall wood building systems’ competitiveness.
