    Abstract

    Following the example of the manufacturing industry, the construction industry has utilized supply chain management to improve its performance and competitiveness. However, although performance measurement has attracted particular attention in the sector since the 1990s, supply chain performance measurement has been largely overlooked. Therefore, given that buildings are outputs of supply chain systems, there is a need to develop a better understanding of performance measurement pertaining to the interactions and interdependencies between the constituent parts of these systems.
