Construction Enterprise Supply Chain Design Research


Article Preview

The introduction of the thought of supply chain management into the construction industry can improve the competitiveness of enterprises. Based on the integration of both the effect of the supply chain as well as supply chain management and the actual situation, this paper analyzed the necessity of the construction and implementation of supply chain management of the construction enterprise. Compared with the supply chain of manufacturing industry, we found it feasible to implement supply chain management in the construction industry and analyzed the obstacles in it. Finally, it pointed out that the clustering of construction materials, information technology, business process reengineering, outsourcing of projects logistics and so on were the basis of constructing supply chain management of the construction enterprise, and accordingly the joint-design supply chain model of the project cost-oriented and the responsiveness-oriented was established.
