Abstract

The Industrialized Building System (IBS) is a building technique where the construction date can be shortened because IBS components and framework are made from the factory. Nevertheless, the problem lies in implementing IBS by moving materials and structure to the construction site. The IBS ' concerns focus on issues like size and weight restrictions, trajectory constraints as well as lifting equipment and the availability. In addition, the transport process also has its limits, such as the difficulty of getting to the site and transporting large components from the factory to the construction site. The aim of this study is to identify the actual issue and how excellent logistic management can improve the reliability of IBS implementation. The objectives of this research are divided into three different objectives, which are to define the level of acceptance of IBS among respondents, to differentiate any differences in terms of logistical challenges in IBS and to provide support for the implementation of IBS by local government authorities. Few sets of surveys have been distributed to a number of roles in construction companies to identify issues. Later, an analysis will be carried out using the SPSS program to rectify the data and to produce a characteristic pattern between different data variables. The actual scenario and challenges for the implementation of the Industrialized Buildings System (IBS) are still at an inappropriate level for most construction organizations because most of them are still in their comfort zone by using late conventional methods. Common construction company, especially private businesses, are not persuaded that IBS can result in significant cost savings, especially with the small building volume. Nevertheless, IBS is regarded as an effective way to achieve productivity gains and make new entrants more involved in the production and distribution of building materials on-site, just as it is possible to improve overall construction performance with regard to quality, cost efficiency, occupational safety, waste reduction, identification and security.
