Abstract

Logistics solutions are crucial for efficiency, especially in renovation projects with tight schedule. Manufacturing industries use kitting of assembly parts to improve time efficiency in assembly. Even if it is a promising solution in renovation projects, there is no empirical research on its impacts in renovation. We examine whether apartment-based assembly kits improve renovation projects’ workflow. A multiple case-study design compares two projects: with and without the solution. Two cameras collected data for performance measurement in the selected apartments. The study generates insights on how kits prepared by a logistic provider in consolidation center can improve on-site performance.
