Abstract
Material contributes to a large share of construction costs and as prices
are increasing companies must seek creative solutions and find new
approaches in order to find ways of saving money. As a part of a strategic
development Peab, one of Sweden’s leading construction- and contractor
companies, is making an effort to streamline their purchasing system
using the purchasing tool PIA, which digitalizes catalog’s, invoices and
call-off agreements. Integrating Peab’s suppliers also opens up the
opportunity to take advantage of EDI-, order value-, forward schedulingand
planning discounts.
Peab is now entering the second phase of introducing this tool where they

Material contributes to a large share of construction costs and as prices
are increasing companies must seek creative solutions and find new
approaches in order to find ways of saving money. As a part of a strategic
development Peab, one of Sweden’s leading construction- and contractor
companies, is making an effort to streamline their purchasing system
using the purchasing tool PIA, which digitalizes catalog’s, invoices and
call-off agreements. Integrating Peab’s suppliers also opens up the
opportunity to take advantage of EDI-, order value-, forward schedulingand
planning discounts.
Peab is now entering the second phase of introducing this tool where they
are transferring parts of the purchasing and planning responsibility from
the central PIA-organization to the local workplaces. The intention is to
send fewer but larger call-offs from construction sites, thereby increasing
the level of discount usage.
The purpose of this thesis is to find out how discounts are taken
advantage of today as well as establishing the actual cost-saving potential.
Discount savings are related to their possible change in the total cost,
coming from fewer and larger call-offs. The thesis is also aimed at laying a
foundation for future phases of implementing PIA locally.
The analysis has been limited to one of Peab’s current projects as a case
study. Call-off data, interviews with a PIA-purchaser as well as a
theoretical framework of references have all helped the authors come to
certain conclusions.
In general the level of discount-usage is high. Only the forward
scheduling-discounts, which are used at a level of 14.7 %, are below the
acceptable threshold and the cost-saving potential when it comes to
discount savings for the entire project is 16.6 %. Contributing to the high
level of discount usage are the PIA-purchaser’s good computer skills,
well-collected call-offs and straight directives from upper management.
Bad planning and communications are suspected to be the root cause of
the low usage-level of the forward scheduling discounts.
The total cost at current levels of discount usage and conditions in general
may experience a negative effect when implementing fewer but larger
call-offs. (Less)
