Abstract [en]

Building a house or a road is a coordination of different suboperations. Each suboperation requires a skilled worker, material, machines and different tools. The purpose of this essay is to investigate what kind of support the supervisors areable to use when it comes to hiring the machines and tools. The most common support when planning the need is called a machine plan. The companies that provide machines and tools by hire will also be investigated to see what they have to offer for their customers.

The gathered information comes from the websites of the companies but also through interview with three different supervisors. Literature about construction management have been used to define what a machine plan is. All three of the interviewed supervisors do the planning of machines and tools when planning the rest of a suboperation. This is usually done a couple of weeks in advance. None of the interviewed supervisors use machine plans and the reason might be that it’s more useful to use it when planning the need of excavators and other big machines that needs a driver.

The result from this essay is that there are two areas where there’s room for improvement. The first one is about the problems when ordering online. According to the interviewees it doesn’t work optimally. They would like to use this function when they know exactly what they need. The second area is the how the current holding is presented to the customer. They would like to be able to do sorting in the list and have it be more interactive.
