Conceptual foundations for a new lean BIM-based production system in construction

To prove whether productivity deficiencies in construction can be improved, a new lean BIM-based production system is designed to assess the hypothesis that a true integration of BIM functionalities with the Last Planner System will contribute to a more efficient project delivery. This paper discusses...

Synchronization of the manufacturing process and on-site installation in ETO companies

Traditional Engineer-to-Order (ETO) companies are typically engaged in the production of capital goods or building projects in the construction industry. While parts or assemblies are manufactured and pre-assembled in the factory, the completion and final assembly will be concluded on-site. In usual construction supply chains...
