    DfMA (design for manufacture and assembly) doesn't have to be an exclusive club of certain project types. We will walk through the story of identifying levels of DfMA, working with a large contractor to develop design modules, through design, fabrication, and installation. Building on the concepts of modular construction, DfMA is the next evolution for an automated architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. This class will make the concept more accessible to different project types. The BIM (Building Information Modeling) process and virtual design and construction (VDC) process need to fit with the design process. The final output also needs to meet hard-coded engineering standards. Systems design and sequencing challenges were overcome with modularization and automation. We'll show you how.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover applications of different levels of DfMA approaches
    • Learn how to apply DfMA concepts to generative design and BIM automation for building systems
    • Learn how to validate the design optimization
    • Learn how to create a quality review process integrated into the design process
