    An exploration of design systems for mass customization of factory-built timber frame homes
    (Network organization technology research center (CENTOR), 2006-01-01) Lapointe, Marc; Beauregard L., Robert; D'Amours, Sophie
    Demographic trends are forcing the homebuilding industry to speed up the industrialization process through mass customization (MC). Our survey of companies in the sector of factory-built timber frame homes shows that data processing for the prefabrication of houses and their structural components comprises many iterations which generate a bot- tleneck at the technical design function. Companies must develop considerable agility in their design function to deal with repeated change in orders and to coordinate multidiscipli- nary information and often from multiple sources, while controlling costs, delays and quality. In order to develop MC of factory-built timber houses, a design system framework is pro- posed, taking advantage of a product platform based solution. The framework aims at inte- grating functional requirements and constraints in house prefabrication. Such conceptual work is an initial step towards emulating an advanced planning and scheduling system capa- ble to provide efficient coordination through proper data exchange required for the processes of the homebuilding value creating network.
