Course Aim

The aim of the course is to give the students a basic understanding of concepts and methods in construction supply chain management.

Intended Learning Outcomes

After a passed course the student shall be able to:

- define and apply basic concepts, models, tools and methods to observe, describe and analyze site and construction supply chain management

- define and apply the concepts of construction supply chain planning, supply chain coordination, supply chain integration and supply chain management given basic conditions.

- independently plan, develop and suggest implementation of construction supply chain design in a construction setting including services, subcontracting, deliveries of materials and other resources within given conditions

- reflect on the strategic meaning of supply chain management activities within construction and on its effect on sustainability, social responsibility, health and safety and risk management

- define, describe and reflect on future challenges and trends related to the construction supply chain management  


Contents

The course consists of theories in construction supply chain management related to methods, processes, production systems, concepts and flows of trades, information, material, and cash. Areas that are covered are supply chain design and supply chain planning, supply chain coordination, supply chain integration and management of the supply chain within the construction context. 


Realization

Students obtain the theoretical material from the course literature with the support of lectures. The application of theory is practiced, tested and reflected upon in assignments where students work both in groups and individually. The groups present their findings and discuss their choices for the assignment at seminars. 


Examination

Basic understanding of the theoretical content is assessed through individual assignments. Deeper knowledge and practical skills are assessed collectively through a written and an oral presentation of assignments.
