Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide a discussion on improvement in construction supply chain management. The study is based on a literature review regarding the evolution of supply chain management theory within the construction environment and a review of the current findings of supply chain management in industrial engineering. The paper presents five managerial practices to be studied and implemented in construction supply chain management. Such managerial practices are traditionally adopted by manufacturing companies and they reflect best practices for improvement in a multi-organizational environment. Even though this paper has a theoretical approach, it also aims to bring a contribution to practitioners by providing directions for improving construction supply chain management.
