Building Production Management Techniques provides an innovative approach to dealing with the universal problems of time, cost and quality of construction projects. The book provides an introduction to a number of management techniques that can be applied to the problems of production presented by the diverse, heavy, large and geographically distributed products typical of construction everywhere. As well as recognised and tried and tested management techniques, the authors have introduced a number of techniques which may not have been considered by the construction industry to date.
Introduction to systems thinking; planning techniques for defining production systems; analysis techniques for optimising production systems; control techniques for implemented production systems; designing an appropriate organization structure for production.
