Industrialized building system (IBS) has been introduced in construction industry as early as 1960’s. The challenges facing our construction industry are due to shortage of skill labour and high cost of construction. Therefore, the concept of construction using IBS is proposed to reduce our dependency on intensive labor works and to reduce the cost of construction. However, the process of changing the traditional construction method to IBS has been delayed due to the reluctant to accept the changes and even resistant to changes. Therefore this paper presents the concept of Industrialized Building System, the scope of IBS, challenges and way forward to inculcate the use of IBS construction in Indonesia.
