Barker, Ralph and Naim, Mohamed Mohamed 2004. Housebuilding Supply Chains: Remove Waste - Improve Value. International Journal of Logistics Management 15 (2) , pp. 51-64. 10.1108/09574090410700301

There is little published work regarding value and waste in UK housebuilding supply chains. In this paper, we review the current status of research in supply chains generally and housebuilding supply chains specifically. The “wastes” and “values” within housebuilding supply chains are identified and categorized and some key potential improvement methodologies are proposed. Starting from the concepts of “value” and “waste”, relevant supply chain models are evaluated and a case study is used to suggest improvements towards a more efficient housebuilding supply chain. Finally, we present a template for waste detection in housebuilding supply chains.
