The use of supply chain management to reduce delays as result of pre-construction deficiencies in Malaysian public sector construction projects

Mehdi Riazi, Salman Riazi (2014) The use of supply chain management to reduce delays as result of pre-construction deficiencies in Malaysian public sector construction projects. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis examined the delay causes of Malaysian public sector projects. Using a systematic approach, the researcher identified the main delay factors and categorised them into pathogens. The pathogens were matched with beneficial Supply Chain Management (SCM) tools and developed into a holistic SCM framework to facilitate improvements in Malaysian public sector projects. The researcher concluded that SCM is the potential saviour for the delay dilemma and that it is necessary for the Malaysian government to initiate the revolutionary practice.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
