Article
Full-text available
A library of prefabricated parts and assemblies, i.e. module library, can help a firm in the construction industry transition to a more industrialized and product-oriented approach. However, existing approaches to manage such libraries are oriented around single-use projects. There is need for a more flexible data structure to support storage, anal...
Article
Full-text available
The current digital fabrication workflow requires many iterations between design and manufacturing. Automated manufacturability analysis can reduce the number of iterations at the design stage. However, existing approaches that leverage design for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA) do not consider detailed product features and production capabilitie...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cloud manufacturing is an emerging manufacturing paradigm to enable rapid production for mass customization. Industrialized construction shares a similar production environment with manufacturing products, so it has a great potential to utilize the paradigm. Previous studies never examined cloud manufacturing in the construction context. This work...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The use of prefabricated modules can benefit the construction industry with the economy of scales and production efficiency. However, the existing approach to develop module libraries is project-based, lacking the potential to reuse and manage in future projects. By taking the repeatability and manufacturability into account, this paper proposes a...
Article
Full-text available
One emerging strategy in industrialized construction is the use of mass customization to increase product efficiency without sacrificing design flexibility. Effective implementation of mass customization can be done through a product platform, i.e. a configurator. However, existing configurators often lack integration of knowledge from the downstre...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To support mass customization for industrialized construction, researchers and industry have adopted product configuration strategies. Based on the theory of modularization, pre-defined module libraries can be configured into feasible construction projects. However, the digital representation of configuration knowledge is understudied. Current Buil...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To improve productivity, the construction industry is increasingly adopting methods of industrialized construction. A key strategy to support industrialized construction is to leverage an adaptable product development platform, i.e. a configurator. Although many benefits of configurators (e.g. mass customization) have been witnessed in the manufact...
