THE APPLICATION OF SELECTED LOGISTICS TECHNOLOGIES IN CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES

The article discusses the possibility of the application of new technologies in the construction industry. When applying new logistics technologies in the construction
industry it is necessary that the specifications of this sector of the national economy are being taken into account as they are different from other sectors, especially the custom-oriented production for pre-existing clients; therefore it is not possible to
produce to stock. A building is immobile, usually carried out directly on the site of the customer, i.e. that the distribution is not possible as in the case of a product or goods. Similarly, the building production is individual and each has a unique character,
making a mass production impossible and hampering the implementation of all logistics technologies. Due to the technological sequence influenced by weather
conditions, parallel operations are not possible during the construction process, except for certain groups of activities. It is not possible to transfer proven and successful logistics technologies to another building, as each one is unique. Based on the analysis and observation of the construction process and the usage of the logistics chain, authors revealed the findings of its poor management. The results show a relatively
small proportion of the duration: the realization of the main construction operations represented only 30% of the total duration of the construction work. The analysis
shows the extent of unproductive time used. This paper presents a case study of the construction of a reinforced concrete skeleton. When dealing with the case study
authors cooperated with a construction company manager, who they consulted the technology of the construction of the reinforced concrete skeleton with. The authors analyzed the different stages of the construction of the reinforced concrete skeleton
with the respective activities that are divided into acquisition, production and distribution logistics. The „weak points“ in the construction of the reinforced concrete skeleton in the individual stages are being identified and applied logistics technologies for the company logistics of the construction companies are subsequently being recommended.
