Abstract

This article is the first of a series of papers which discuss the usefulness of production engineering tools for general civil engineering. Applications of selected production engineering tools in civil engineering are presented in these papers. The diverse nature of the tools is considered while outlining detailed areas of their application in civil engineering. The features of the tools make them representative of production engineering methodology. Thus, information about the civil engineering applications of the tools also makes it possible to draw practical conclusions about the general usefulness of production engineering methodology in civil engineering. The applications of failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA) are utilised in this regard in the article.
