Abstract: The heightened risk exposure of construction supply chains (SCs) calls for greater resilience. Focussing on industrialized construction (IC), this study examines how supply chain resilience (SCR) can be boosted through clear identification of the relevant and appropriate supply chain capabilities (SCC) that construction firms would then need to nurture and/or develop further. This study conducted a systematic review of SCC related literature, followed by an in-depth analysis and consolidation of the findings which enabled the development of a proposed action framework for achieving SCR in IC. The results revealed 58 SCC related to IC and mapped the yearly publication trend, publications by country and methodological approaches followed in previous research. Thematic analysis was conducted to categorize the identified SCC into 12 newly formulated constructs. Further, the findings help to identify a suite of capabilities (SCC) to develop value-enhanced resilient SCs in IC and provide a foundation for further research in SCR in the construction industry.
