An analytical framework for integrating design and construction

Abstract: A major contributory factor to poor performance in the construction industry is known to be the lack of integration and coordination between the different disciplines involved in various stages of the procurement process. However, attempts by researchers to address this problem have met with limited success so far, because they have focused mainly on adapting integration techniques originally developed for use in the manufacturing industry. There is therefore a need to develop a detailed understanding of the fundamental sciences that underpin the problem of integrating the procurement process across the construction project life-cycle. This paper discusses a framework for addressing major methodological issues in analysing design/construction relationships
