Abstract in another language

Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is a well-known method in quality management (QM). Until now only less research is done in the application of quality and process improvement with FMEA in the construction industry. FMEA supports the involvement of experts’ information, allows engineers to get contextual information to problems and enables to assess possible failure regarding to their relevance. Reasons for that can be found in the common project based manner of building projects, which do not support application of FMEA for improvement projects. Industrialised housebuilding, where project based order fulfilment is combined with process views, starts changing the need for QM-methods in the construction industry. Also because of upcoming use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) concepts a need for appropriate QM-methods is generated, to support the development of usable design standards. In addition it is estimated positive because of the involvement of employees experiences which is a common source of improvement ideas in construction industry. An FMEA case study is applied during an improvement project in an industrialized housebuilding company to test how well it works for this application. The method is further assessed with a use case as well as by findings of interviewed employees.
