Abstract

Due to the declining productivity in the construction industry, the Malaysian government has embarked on a serious program to promote the use of Industrialized Building Systems (IBS) to improve the performance of its construction industry. One aspect to improve is in the planning of IBS projects. Efficient planning of IBS works requires, among others, reliable data on production rates. Currently, there is hardly a database of production rates for use by construction planners in the country. This study aims to develop a database of production rates for IBS works. Production rate of IBS components in this research is focused mainly on the installation rate of these components. To obtain a significant number of reliable data, quantitative measurements have been done using work sampling approach. The result of this study may be used as a tool to estimate the installation rate of IBS construction projects.
