Abstract: Construction managers are interested in the efficiency of a certain material flow control mechanism applied at construction processes. Realistic strategic planning can only be achieved if the decision makers know the exact value of process efficiency. Therefore the measurement of relevant features and the setup of adequate data collection and representation system are needed. This paper deals with the applicable performance analysis tools and data collection methods regarding different production and material flow control mechanisms operating on construction sites. It is demonstrated, how the activity based costing procedures should be adjusted to the project management system. The effect of the PMFC method choice on different logistic cost factors is described.
