(0 votes)

Background

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.

Objectives

  • 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.
