Abstract:Many companies are struggling with the question of whether to insource or outsource the production or services, with the aim to maximize profitability. This paper is performed within Twence B.V. Twence B.V. is operating in the waste industry, and its main source of revenue is from waste handling and energy production. The question that is answered during this paper is; “What model can be used for a make or buy analysis for building-related installations?“. The methods that are used to answer this question are a literature study and a case study. Several models are evaluated, thereof one final (6 steps) model is created. This model is tested within the company. Out of the literature, it can be concluded that cost savings and core competence are the main reasons to perform a make or buy analysis. The outcome of the created model is that Twence B.V. can better outsource building related maintenance to maximize its profitability.
