SSUD71-012: Productivity and Off-site Fabrication (Maximising Value)


This subject addresses the importance of using modern BIM/Lean/IPD manufacturing and construction principles to minimise waste from all aspects of project productivity. The subject involves a critical review of standard approaches to onsite progress and productivity as compared with the potential advantages of using BIM principles and processes integrated with Lean/IPD based practices, in the integration with off-site fabrication where appropriate and viable. The underlying focus of the subject ties all concepts back to information management delivering minimum waste to the contractor and client.

The subject is taught in a highly interactive environment. The lectures cover a range of topics relating to the opportunities and methods employed by contractors to leverage BIM during construction. This series of lectures introduces students to applying BIM/Lean/IPD principles to aspects of utilising BIM technology in determining work to be ‘manufactured’ on site and work to be ‘manufactured’ in pre-fabrication factories to ensure project processes minimise waste in all aspects of design and project delivery.

Learning outcomes

1. Evaluate BIM/Lean/IPD technology outputs to make decisions regarding manufacturing aspects of the delivery process that could contribute to maximisation of project value.
2. Assess potential construction delivery intentions using BIM platforms with a Lean construction focus within an IPD approach to determine the best combination and integration of on-site production and off site fabrication to optimize project value.
