The supplying of engineer-to-order joinery products to the construction industry is considered a novel research area in the wood-related literature as well as in the construction-related literature. The process of supplying the construction industry with highly refined one-of-a-kind wood products is examined in this thesis, and more specifically, an organization using a mixture of concept-to-order and design- to-order production strategies to produce Engineer-to-order Joinery Products. The focus in this work is on the possibilities for innovation in the industry of supplying engineer-to-order joinery products and on improved integration with the construction industry.
The construction industry has been criticized for not keeping up with other production industries in terms of quality, cost efficiency, innovation, and production methods. The development of Lean production principles and supply chain management are innovations commonly suggested as improvements in increasing the degree of industrialization to the construction industry, and this is also reflected in this work where waste in the process has been identified.
The work is weighted towards a qualitative research approach, and real-world case studies have been used for the empirical data collection.
Results from the studied cases indicate that the process of supplying engineer-to- order joinery products to construction has the potential for improved efficiency. Violations of Lean principles are identified, and these have effects on the process of supplying joinery products to construction. Much of the identified waste can find its cause in these violations. Innovation in adopting Lean principles and managing information, supply chain, planning, and coordination is believed to be essential for improving total process performance in supplying engineer-to-order joinery products to construction.
The supplying of engineer-to-order joinery products faces opportunities and challenges similar to those in the industrialized housing industry. An increased level of prefabrication, decreased assembly time, and increased predictability of on-site work seem possible if confronting the root causes found in this work.
