Abstract [en]

Mobility, project orientation and the set-up of new organisation in every project are characteristics of the construction industry. The products are one of a kind and seldom develop beyond the prototype phase. This is often suggested as reasons for the low development of productivity in the construction industry, and continuous improvement and experience feedback becomes harder to accomplish from project to project. The production results are handed over from contractor to client through different inspections. The inspector creates a "punch list" with all detected defects, and the contractor then is to fix these before the construction work can be finally accepted. These often lengthy lists on documented faults are full of information that can be useful for the contractor company’s learning and experience feedback process. A previous study shows that contractors acknowledge this potential use, but they may need some sort of IT system to support the inter-project management of the inspection information collected. The aim of this study is to identify benefits for different project roles in a construction project from an inter-project inspection information system (IPIIS), e.g. what kind of information or data they would like to be able to extract, in order to enhance learning and feedback in their organisations. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with professionals representing different common project roles of construction projects, and regulatory demands for inspection as a part of project handover in Sweden has been studied. These results are analysed to form recommendations to the design of a future IPIIS. The requirements of a digital IPIIS are analysed, both from a regulatory point of view and from the perspective of making the inspection data useful for knowledge mining.
