Abstract

The IKEA organisation is well known for its efficient management and manufacturing approach for home furnishings. With suitable technological adaptation, the approach offers a new way for the management and construction of construction projects. In the following sections, the IKEA approach is briefly introduced and the adaptations necessary for use on construction projects are described. Finally, a case study is described to illustrate its use in practice.
