Abstract
Panelized construction has been recognized as a promising approach to residential construction. However, its full potential in terms of productivity improvement has not yet been realized due to the absence of an automated production planning and control system. This research thus conceives an integrated production planning and control system for a prefabricated panelized home production facility. The proposed system consists of four primary modules: (1) a real-time data acquisition module, which is employed in this study to collect time and location information of building panels from the production floor in real time; (2) a scheduling module, which generates an optimized building panel production schedule with the objective of minimizing the production lead time and material waste on the basis of detailed job information from a 3D BIM model; (3) a discrete-event simulation (DES) module, which is developed based on the historical data from the data acquisition module in order to provide a performance benchmark; and (4) a financial module, which provides total labour cost for every job as well as unit labour cost for each workstation. These four modules are seamlessly integrated through a central database in order to generate the production schedule, real-time location tracking, simulation-based performance evaluation, and cost control. The proposed system is implemented and validated in a panelized wall production facility at ACQBUILT, Inc., a prefabricated home builder in Edmonton, Canada.
