Abstract [en]

The construction industry depends on functioning logistics; if the logistics isn’tworking the construction site will risk to be interrupted due to material shortages orproblems with deliveries. Despite this, the construction industry is battling logisticproblems daily. This problem is very time consuming and costly for the companies.These theses are written for Peab Bostadsproduktion and investigate if it is possibleto focus on logistics earlier in the building planning process to reduce the problemsthat occur. Peab has partnerships with three companies that could be helpful for themin the work of reducing logistic problems. These three companies are Vico, BEAst andBIMobject.The thesis first section gives a general review of logistics, as well as the conceptsrelated to it. A general review of the above named partners is also given. In the firstsection the meaning of BIM is also explained. The core of the thesis consists of asurvey with craftsman from one of Peabs construction sites. The other main part isinterviews with officials from both the production side and from Peabs headquarters.The survey and the interviews have then been collected and analyzed. Based on theresult that was gathered, suggestions and solutions are presented and discussed.The work shows that many of the logistical problems that occur can be reduced orcompletely prevented by implementing these three in all Peabs own managementbuilds.
