ABSTRACT: The project is composed of different phases such as design, planning, execution, control, monitoring and management. Focusing on the execution phase, there are still some issues regarding to materials management that must be faced such as transportation, inadequate storage on site, delay in material that undoubtedly leads to higher cost and delayed time schedules.
Therefore, the aim of this Master Dissertation is to find the most adequate technologies, methods or principles in order to improve the material logistics on the construction site, following the Lean Construction principles, using technologies coming from the Industry 4.0 and using an open source platform which will be supported by using BIM to exchange information.
This Master Dissertation is divided in six (6) chapters, the first chapter is a brief introduction of the problem to be solved, the second chapter is a literature review, the third chapter are case studies, the fourth chapter is the new method proposed by the author, the fifth chapter is the respective conclusion and recommendations, and the sixth chapter contains the references used in this Master Dissertation.
After presenting all the literature review and the case studies, it was possible to find out that none of the cases studies were a part of a process, it is therefore, that a new method for supply chain management in construction called ‘’LOCATER’’ was defined.
The new method for the supply chain management in construction, helps anyone involved in a construction project by using emerging technological tools through an open source information platform in order to improve the different areas of the supply chain, helping the human labor improve the process.
In the future, the method can be improved by using a system that can track the material in real-time from the supplier to the construction site, as well as using
the technology to track the material in real-time on the construction site.
