Project T4-1 – Enhanced Factory-based Construction for Wood Buildings
PI: Nadia Lehoux
The deployment of Lean and JIT principles in off-site factories has shown promising improvements in construction projects (Bamana et al. 2019, Staub-French et al. 2021), but there are challenges applying these principles to wood construction projects (Lyu et al. 2020, Mohammadi et al. 2021). This sub-project aims to develop decision-making tools to better assist off-site construction of wood buildings when production and logistics operations follow a JIT philosophy. The final outcome will be a general management framework to guide the implementation of advanced planning tools.
