Abstract

The construction industry in the UK and Ireland has long been accused of being low tech, averse to funding research and development, and reliant on other sectors allied to construction for innovative improvements. One area has been championed as bucking this trend especially post Latham and Egan, and that is construction procurement. The last few decades has witnessed a proliferation of procurement systems and sub-systems, work packaging, organisational relationships, payment systems, contract structures and project participant selection methods. This research proposes a technique to identify and discover if these changes are indeed innovative and provide a method of selecting appropriate procurement systems incorporating these innovations through adoption of a case-based reasoning approach
