[INFOGRAPHIC] Deconstructing Lean Construction

By Akio

The adoption of Lean construction by the AEC industry, and Lean drivers, benefits, and challenges are illustrated in this Dassault Systèmes infographic.

Given the biggest challenge to implementing Lean construction is a lack of awareness, please share this infographic with your network:

The 3 Building Parts Best Suited for Prefabrication

By Patrick

During a house building. Civil Engineering in GermanyPrefabrication is an important tool for those practicing industrialized construction.

But not everything on a project is delivered more efficiently with prefabrication. Some components or elements of a building are more suited for prefab than others.

Best Suited for #Prefab in #AEC”

Standardized building systems, complex assemblies, and repetitive subcomponents of a building are three examples of applications likely to be successful with prefab.

1. “Unnoticed” Building Systems

Commodity assemblies – parts mostly required by code – often go unnoticed.

These building systems don’t make or break the finished project, and so they are more price-sensitive than other systems.

Fire stairs, elevators, plumbing, heating and cooling, and ADA-compliant spaces are examples of building systems that could easily be prefabricated, ordered directly by the owner, and delivered to the worksite ready to be installed.

2. Complex Systems

High-end, intricate elements of a building, for example a unique façade system or other stand-alone component, may be more successfully installed if panelized and prefabricated off the job site.

3. Components of a Building

Repetitive subcomponents can make up 75% of a project in some types of buildings.

For example, patient rooms in hospitals, guest bathrooms and kitchenettes in hotels, classrooms in schools, and labs in research facilities are subcomponents that are replicated over and over again within the building.

Components that make up certain building types can be built offsite more efficiently at scale, and installed on site more quickly.

When planning a project, don’t assume that prefab is an all or nothing proposition. Some parts of a building are much better suited to off-site fabrication than others.

These prefab components will end up being delivered in less time, and at much higher quality, with as much as 30% savings.

3DEXPERIENCE FORUM: AEC Industry Track Recap

By Akio

AEC leaders gathered in Las Vegas this week to take part in the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM, a unique event that explores innovation across a number of industries.

It was valuable to listen to real practices.”
– 3DXForum AEC track attendee 11/11/14

Collaborative Design and Industrialized Construction

The AEC track on the afternoon of November 11, 2014 inspired participants to take on industry challenges such as providing a high quality experience for tenants while completing under budgets, maintaining sustainability, improving project productivity and efficiency, and ensuring construction worker safety.

Attendees were also encouraged to envision the future of their firms by understanding how Owners, Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Product Manufacturers, and Fabricators can collaborate using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in a cloud environment to achieve efficient, industrialized construction practices and BIM Level 3 adoptions.

In the opening session, speaker Marty Doscher (Vice President, Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Dassault Systèmes) discussed how 3D adoption has spread through the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry and that now is the time to evolve to BIM Level 3.

This session explained how 3DEXPERIENCE Business Solutions provides the new and innovative scheme of design and construction processes delivering Building Life Cycle Management.

Industrializing Construction: Industry Solutions Based on Best Practices from Manufacturing

Peter Terwilliger (Solution Experience Director, Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Dassault Systèmes) demonstrated Dassault Systèmes Industrialized Construction solutions, featuring project modeling applications built on the cloud-based, collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform interface is beautiful and looks like easy to use”
