Abstract

Modern Information and Communication Technology (ICT) make it possible to re-organize the information flow and enhance the physical flow of the Construction Supply Chain (CSC). Considering the resource status and potential risks that exist in the CSC, this paper first explores the current CSC re-organization caused by the application of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and related beneficial conditions created by ICT. It then tackles the problem of controlling risk effectively by off-site guarding the upstream of the CSC. Based on the selected approach, the concept and basic mode of a look-ahead supply schedule is proposed. Finally, results to a use case demonstrate the applica
