Model for planning and controlling the delivery and assembly of engineer-to-order prefabricated building systems: exploring synergies between Lean and BIM
This research proposes a model for planning and controlling the delivery and assembly of engineer-to-order prefabricated building systems, emphasizing the integration between site installation and logistics operations. The main theoretical contribution is a set of approaches to implement the “pull production” and “reduce variability” principles...
Application of BIM for supporting decision-making related to logistics in prefabricated building systems
Managing industrialised construction requires an accurate synchronisation of design, manufacturing and assembly processes. Considering the high uncertainty and the interdependences between different processes on site, it is important to consider the status of the construction site in the planning and control process. Understanding the demands...
