Similar to Henry Ford's revolutionary assembly line processes; BIM processes are reshaping the MEP design and construction (manufacturing) processes for facility projects.
Ford's automated automobile assembly-line process; reduced labor time & costs, while reducing material waste with modular, standardized parts.
Sheer production of the Model T dramatically increased. The production time for a single car dropped from over twelve hours to just 93 minutes due to the introduction of the assembly line.
Building Blocks: Offsite Prefabrication Saves Time and Money -- Compressed Work Schedules, Worker Safety, and Access to Constrained Sites Top Benefits
Several maturing, project delivery processes are integrated to produce more efficient, 'manufacturing-oriented' design and construction processes.
