Abstract [en]

The Swedish building contractor JM

Region Öst would like to to investigate

the possibilities of developing and

streamlining the production of singlefamily

houses. JM are producing singlefamily

houses with prefabricated frames

at a rate of about two houses per week.

During construction, the different tasks

are performed by JM’s own production

staff but also by various


When examining the schedules of recently

produced projects, it appears that all

the houses are more or less completed

eight weeks before the customer moves in

to the house. During those eight weeks

several operations are conducted such as

inspections, installation of appliances

and cleaning procedures. The inspection

period constitutes between 25 and 35% of

the complete construction period.

By conducting interviews, it has been

discovered that this final phase is an

essential security buffer for delays and

errors that often occur. Reducing the

time needed for inspection requires that

all activities are properly conducted

with the right quality from start.

After analyzing the results of the

interviews and the comparison of project

schedules, the following conclusions

have been made:

• The time required for

inspections at the end of each project

can be reduced if at the same time

quality inspections and management of

subcontractors are improved during the

whole of the construction period.

• The construction rate is

difficult to increase as it is depending

on the supply capacity from the house


• The experience feedback at JM

can be improved, mainly through feedback

to the production staff at the beginning

of new projects
