Great article from EOS Facades MD Steve Thompson on how joining up Design for Manufacture and Assembly with BIM can significantly reduce issues along the building products journey.
It points to decreased wastage of raw materials, along with a reduction of people needed onsite to install the product. He does, however, highlight that key people internally need to be fully on-board for the approach to work.
Steve Thompson, Managing Director of EOS Facades – a leading innovator in light gauge steel frame construction – discusses the benefits of DfMA for the construction industry. Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) is an approach that focuses on ease of manufacture and efﬁcient assembly. It is well-established in sectors such as the automotive and consumer-products industries that are driven by the need to produce large numbers of consistently high-quality products very efﬁciently.
