#10 Product Platform for Volumetric Building (Scoping Study)

Product platforms seek to standardise products, processes, company knowledge, and supply chain to drive efficiency, unlock design variability, and enable continual improvement in response to market conditions.

This project sought to define a framework and roadmap for the future development of a product platform specific to the context and the needs of our industry partner: a large Australian volumetric construction company.

The research involved: the investigation of best practice case studies; value stream mapping of our industry partners existing design, manufacture, and assembly systems; and identification of pain points‚ in the value stream and opportunities for commonality of parts and processes.

Researchers on the project included: Dr Duncan Maxwell & Dr Ivana Kuzmanovska
