This thesis describes the implementation of a production line assessment framework to help shift off-site modular construction manufacturing (MCM) from a conventional construction approach toward true manufacturing. The framework, which integrates Lean manufacturing construction and value stream...
The recent success of design-driven companies has generated much inquiry into the question of what is design thinking because many companies have begun to realize how design thinking affects their competitiveness. However, these companies do not understand the so-called design-driven process, and...
Industrial fabrication for modular installations has its own set of challenges that combine the environments of industrial manufacturing and off-site construction. This hybrid execution strategy means that fabricators need to look at both fields and adopt the best tools and techniques. This...
A 2 cm thick American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) 1018 steel sample was flame sprayed with Alumina (Al2O3) then a metal matrix composite consisting of Nickel-Chromium-Aluminum-Yttrium (NiCrAlY) and Alumina split 50 % by weight. A first order transfer function was derived from a lumped...
