You have been appointed as an advisor to a major public sector client organisation, involved in Project and Production Management Assessment Information/Brief nation-wide infrastructure delivery. It operates within a wide range of sectors including building, transportation (e.g. highways, railways) and civil infrastructure.
The client organisation is planning to deliver a significant amount of infrastructure to the highest quality in the years ahead. Their vision is to develop high performing infrastructure assets using international benchmarks on quality, low carbon and optimised whole life performance. However, the organisation is conscious of the historical challenges faced due to low productivity, labor intensity, poor safety and inefficiency, leading to cost, time and budget delays and suboptimal optimisation of infrastructure life-cycle and energy performance. This impacts a large part of the economy, which is reliant on services and outputs produced by the construction sector. With significant planned spending for housing and infrastructure, there is a considered need to improve productivity. At the same time, the client organisation is facing increasing pressure to improve efficiency and productivity, due to societal expectations on climate change, resource scarcity and disruptive innovation.
To address the above mentioned challenges, the clients’ vision is to adopt a two pronged strategy including: a) Improving production by developing a new ecosystem to enable digital design and manufacturing using BIM, with manufacturing supply chains built around components and systems and standardisation of construction manufacturing process; and b) Integrating construction, manufacturing, digital design and energy sectors to improve how infrastructure is designed, constructed and operated. Aim is to achieve stated vision by bridging the gap between construction and manufacturing sectors, through standardisation of construction manufacturing processes and supporting the development of supply chains
In this context, the client is seeking expert advice on how to use modern methods of construction and manufacturing approaches (including off-site and on-site assembly), leading to accelerated project delivery and highly controlled, construction assembly sites, using pre-assemble modules and standard components fabricated in factory environments.
Within the above-mentioned context, you are required to document and analyse a single case study or multiple case studies to provide an example of how client could achieve its vision of accelerated delivery using modern methods of construction and manufacturing approaches. Case study can be selected from any type of project or industry sector. Key objective is to provide insights to your client about selected industry best practice and steps required to implement innovation within client’s projects.
Part A. The Project Description
Topics covered may include case study project description, project motivation, location, scope of work, team, site environment, nature of work, key project constraints and risks, issues and challenges faced and other project specific details.
You can chose case study from this website they have useful information.
Part B. Project Innovation
Clearly explain the innovative aspects within proposed project (e.g. novel construction methods, use of manufacturing approaches within construction sector, use of production management principles) and discuss why innovation is relevant for the construction sector and your client (e.g. application of an existing technology in a new area, significant step change in existing processes). Make use of illustrations and visuals to explain the project innovation. Topics covered may include: a) The role BIM technologies and process played in digital design or manufacturing; b) Key issues in technology deployment, use of data exchange standards and summary of benefits; c) Project visualisation; d) Impact on Project Production or e) project management approach.
Part C. Lessons Learned and Recommendations
Topics covered may include: a) Description of benefits realised and key lessons learned;
Recommendation approach DFMA, OSM AND VCD
b) Key conclusions and recommendations for clients;
c) Key skills and capabilities that need to be developed;
d) Necessary steps required to use innovations in future (e.g. policies, R&D, investments, development of supply chain) and how it could help client achieve its vision of adopting modern methods of construction and manufacturing approaches;
e) Outline roadmap;
f) Visual storyboard illustrating futuristic project vision.
