Abstract [en]

The construction industry is often criticized to be an industry of narrowness and slow of change. The traditional construction process is considered to create gasps of inferior quality, delays and increase of disputes. Meanwhile, productivity is lower compared to other industries and the prices are increasing. In this debate, it has been assumed that the reported figures are monitoring a reflection of reality, but there might be an error in the statistics which suggests that the focus is at the wrong place. A study of the monitoring and the measurements of the results are to consider, instead of spending time and resources on issues and actions The Last Planner System is an executive planning tool which creates a predictable workflow and creating value throughout all the different stages. Percent Plan Complete (PPC) is a part of the monitoring work of the planning process, which purpose is to describe the percentage proportion of the number of activities that have been completed in relation to the number of resources that have been in possession. By measuring and monitoring of each activity, analyzes can be made and the causes of success and failure can be determined. However, the difficulties lie within the frames of finding the reason of failure and thus the improvement measures.The purpose of this study is to investigate the method of PPC which is today applied by NCC, and examine whether it is possible to develop and improve the method so it better suits the demands and needs of NCC. The subject has been studied through observations and interviews and suggestions how to use and apply PPC has been investigated and discussed. Using these, improvements and recommendations have been made and presented.
