Building on the results: of a far-reaching action research project we discuss an attempt to introduce target resting in the UK construction industry, After examining some of the issues facing the UK construction industry we examine the case for using target costing as a way of supporting supply-chain integration in view of an improvement of the level of profitability and quality of the industry, After presenting evidence from two pilot projects we propose some considerations on target costing and its applicability to the UK construction sector and derive directions for future research.
