Construction Management & Engineering

  • focuses on the need to acquire better insights into the mechanisms governing innovation in the building processand its environment.

  • research program concentrates on the management and governance mechanisms of construction processes, the interfaces between planning and design, and design and realisation.

  • the program integrates various insights from different disciplines: technology, public and business management, and design (management), and the development of innovative construction processes and materials.

Research perspectives







Demand perspective
Demand perspective

  • Design management/demand

    • User participation and collaborative design

    • Role and selection of designers

    • Design communication

  • Briefing

    • Design quality

    • Key performance indicators and value management

Supply perspective
Supply perspective

  • Mass customisation: Possibilities and limitations of platform driven design and development of products

    Engineering to order: value engineering / management

  • Design management/supply

    • Design reflection and design expertise development of designers

    • Composition and management of design teams

    • Design coordination, design integration

      Constructability: interface between design and realisation

Management perspective
Management perspective

  • Supply chain management and logistics

    • use of ICT

      Design management/organisation

  • Innovation management, risk management, planning and control

    • Managing innovation

    • Design tools for risk management

      (project, corporate and branch level)

Central theoretical focus
Central theoretical focus

Systems engineering

  • a requirements driven way of controlling the design process

  • a goal-directed structured and multi-disciplinary design process and a coherent set of design and management principles, techniques and tool especially for a customer order driven engineering


Reinforce our focusesStrengthen our research

  • Collaborate with other groups (research / education)

    • Demand perspective: architectural design and management (TUDelft, ADMS?)

    • Supply perspective: mass customisation (TUDelft, TU/e?)

    • Management perspective: (BBT UTwente, TM TU/e?)

      Industrial design departments

      Tool development (user participation, design collaboration, decision support, design management)
