Evolving global challenges are driving construction teams to embrace new methods of approaching design and construction. The major forces at work include a shortage of skilled labor, high demand, and liability for safety and quality. Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), within the AEC industry, opens possibilities for addressing the skilled labor shortage, delivering data-driven designs informed by manufacturing and process intelligence, and rapidly bringing new projects online.
Even for contractors that are not ready to embrace full-scale automation, incremental steps are possible. A model-based design delivers the fabrication-ready data at the right time, right place, and the right level of detail to support off-site manufacturing.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides the digital infrastructure and tools necessary to implement a DfMA approach and start benefiting now from the inevitable transformation within the Construction industry. This webinar will be rich with customer image examples, along with the insightful means and methods to spark operational initiative for DfMA.
• Describe the need to address today’s design and construction challenges
• Express the degree of difference between off-site construction to automated manufacturing
• Illustrate the shift of trade-based installations to modularized assemblies
• Recognize the shift from static design data to continuous integration throughout design and construction
