The lack of affordable houses in Malaysia has been an acute problem for a very long time. Although the problem is being realised and projects on developing affordable houses for low-income group are being undertaken recently, the construction industry finds meeting the demand of affordable houses is still far-fetched. This workshop will focus on how to enhance the construction productivity by applying lean thinking principles to the construction environment, assisted by Building Information Modelling (BIM) for a better construction process and technique. The idea of digitizing all construction-related information such as BIM with Industrialised Building System (IBS) and Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) concept, has increased the productivity during installation, delivery and unloading process at construction site. These ideas are believed can keep pace with the ever-growing demand of affordable houses.



  • To identify current practice of lean concept, IBS, BIM and DfMA in housing construction in Malaysia.
  • To determine issues and challenges in implementing lean concept, IBS, BIM and DfMA for housing construction in Malaysia.
  • To provide form of incentives to be introduced to the industry through productivity.

CREAM and CIDB organised a workshop on Guidelines for House Manufacturing on the 27-29th of July 2018 at The Everly, Putrajaya. Expertise from the industry came to participate to share their knowledge and experience on Design for Manufacturing and Assembly.

Industrialised Building System (IBS) is the driver that brings the Malaysian construction industry towards modernisation which could contribute to the economy and productivity. This transformation can be achieved through the evolution of IBS process. IBS method has been practiced in Malaysia for quite some time and there are a lot of local IBS producers that have moved towards Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) manufacturing. This method is faster and more productive compared to conventional construction that uses component method. The construction evolution has been developed into modular and PPVC which are useful in transforming Malaysia construction industry.

Guidelines for House Manufacturing is a collaboration work between CIDB and CREAM that will be developed as a reference for house manufacturing process for developers, manufacturers, consultants, contractors and other industry players. It is a comprehensive source of information that can be used by the industry players and can act as a catalyst for quality and productivity in the construction industry. On 27th to 29th of July 2018, CIDB together with CREAM organised a workshop on Developing the Guidelines for House Manufacturing in The Everly, Putrajaya. The main objective of the workshop was to gather expertise from the industry – developer, manufacturer, contractor, consultant, MEP, architect – to gain their knowledge and experience on Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) as well as to get their input on using the DfMA concept in house manufacturing.
