Abstract

How practical is it to carry out a construction project without a pre-defined methodology? It is quite possible to start and end a project. The only difference is that there won’t be any discipline w.r.t time, cost and quality of the project, which is unacceptable. At the same time, there is also a genuine need of crafted methodology for the Indian construction industry. This study aims to propose a standard methodology for the Indian construction, which have been formulated considering the efficiency and optimization of all major methodologies and, bring the comfort to educate and train the employees and workforce. Integrating the management tools such as Last planner system, Kanban, poka yoke, value stream mapping etc into our construction methodology would help to eliminate miscalculations and deviations from what was planned. To identify the present industry awareness on the tools and methodology options, a survey were conducted, where the knowledge of around 30+ construction professionals were considered and recorded. This survey helped with the questionnaire for the one-on-one interview with the industry professionals. The results help us understand the way in which we can propose a single methodology, which is a combination of number of work packages divided according to the project phases. These work packages include the tools and techniques, which have been consolidated from various methodologies. This paper briefly talks about how we can achieve a custom-made framework for the Indian construction industry by doing a comparative study of all major project methodologies.
