The construction industry has been notorious for relying on centuries-old processes to manage projects that are getting more complex and demanding faster execution. This class will discuss how Building Information Modeling (BIM) is making a shift by industrializing construction and setting up off-site assembly lines for manufacturing modules and subassemblies that can be assembled on-site by a lean team. In this session, we will discuss case studies from several iconic global project executions (airports, stadiums, and so on) where assembly line manufacturing construction processes were deployed for amazingly fast construction, reducing the on-site work, wastages, and costs. The main focus of this class is on building the network and involving all stakeholders in the use of BIM to support modular design and industrialized construction. Attendees will learn when and how to set up these assembly lines and discover the challenges associated with them.
- Learn about building the ecosystem and setting up the team, processes, and collaboration for successful industrialization
- Discover the workflow for assembly-line modularized production—when, why, and how
- Learn about the challenges and success factors based on several case studies from around the world
- Learn about the technology innovations enabling the industrialization and upcoming trends
