Abstract

In improving Indonesia construction companies’ ability to compete, anticipative steps by determining various improvements and corrections in construction companies are needed to increase the company’s quality performance. Several factors that influence and determine the success of a construction company can be grouped into internal factors, external factors, and market forces. Internal factors in a company are important factors and have the effect of approximately 42% towards the company’s success. Management, equipment, human resources, corporate culture and finance dominate the internal factors’ influence towards the success of a construction company. The research objective discussed in this paper is to identify the causes of internal factor problems in construction companies and their corrective action recommendations. Corrective actions are needed to fix the problems and it depends upon the cause and the effect of the problems in construction companies. The methods used are literature studies and survey to identify the problems including their effects and causes, also their corrective actions. Analyses used in this research are Statistical Analysis, Monte Carlo simulation and Delphi Method. The results show that the corrective actions towards the problems in internal factors which are mostly corrective action during construction process and lesson-learned corrective action (preventive action).
