Smart reconfigurability approach in manufacture of steel and façade constructions
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years the principles of industrialisation and prefabrication of factory-finished elements have gained more and more acceptance in the construction sector. Due to the limited duration of projects in this sector, manufacturing cells and assembly line configurations show a very short life time and they have to be highly flexible and adaptable to changing circumstances. This paper gives an overview about the state of the art in prefabrication and reconfigurability in the building industry. Based on the experiences from an industrial case study the paper shows an approach to increase a company’s ability for smart reconfiguration of pre-assembly.
