Factors influence construction time performance for IBS in Malaysia Construction Industry

Salahuddin, Siti Nur Hafizeanie (2010) Factors influence construction time performance for IBS in Malaysia Construction Industry. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Civil Engineering.



The demand of building construction in Malaysia has increased rapidly from year to year together with the establishment of Industrialized Building System (IBS). IBS have been introduced to speed up the construction time and built affordable and quality houses. However, the traditional construction method still widely accepted as a convention and safe option incurring lower cost even slow in production rate. The implementation of guideline and practice within this industry are inconsistent among the players involved and it required more exertion or research to improve the construction time performance (CTP). The objective of study is to identify the main factors that influence CTP. For the second objective, the identification factors that influence CTP for IBS and conventional method of construction has been made. The last objective in this study is to established factors which can help to improve CTP. The survey research methodology is through the literature review, questionnaires and personnel interview with construction players. About thirty seven respondents out of fifty respondents had contributed their opinion and ideas and the data collection was analysed using an ‘Average Index’. From the study, six main factors that influence the CTP which are management, financial, materials, workers, machineries and weather was discovered. Based on the factors highlighted, four of the factors which are financial, materials, workers and machineries mostly affecting the CTP for IBS as compared to conventional construction method. The factors to be improved CTP also was highlighted in this study.
