The prefabricated metal buildings

A strategy for the adoption of advanced Information Technologies

introduction
Introduction
  • Existing processes and business environment
  • Available and suitable information technologies
  • A framework target plan, including assessment of potential benefits
  • Assess the expected costs of achieving the plan
  • Analysis of the readiness for implementation of the framework plan
  • A detailed plan for the next incremental step
business environment
Business Environment
  • What is the prefabricated metal buildings industry?
    • Composed of firms fabricating the components of complete low-rise nonresidential building systems
    • Categorized in the manufacturing industry section according to the Economic Census
business environment cont
Business environment (Cont.)
  • An economic review
    • Popular as nonresidential structures
      • 65 percents share of nonresidential market compared with about 50 % in 1990 and 35 % in the early 1970s. (U.S. industry and trade outlook 2000)
    • Affordability, faster completion and occupation times, and high quality
business environment cont5
Business environment (Cont.)
  • The total number of companies is 603.
  • Added value is $1, 767, 827, 000.
  • Companies with less 20 employees are over a half among total
  • The majority of the output are the larger companies
  • Source: The 1997 Economic Census
processes environment
Processes environment
  • How are companies involved?
    • Companies can serve the consumers directly as a design-build team
    • Companies can be involved in the design process only
    • Companies can be involved in the manufacturing and erection process only
    • Companies can be the subcontractors and materials suppliers
processes environment cont
Processes environment (Cont.)
  • What activities exist?
    • Win contract to acquire project
    • Planning and scheduling
    • Design
    • Manufacturing and assembling
    • Storage and delivery
    • Erection
available information technologies
Available Information Technologies
  • A list of technologies being used
    • 2-D drawing
    • 3-D modeling: e.g. PresentationPlus 3D
    • Fabrication and assembly: CNC, CAM, Robotics
    • Interactive online system (Design, pricing, detailing, bill of materials, erection and fabrication drawing): e.g. QUESTmb
available information technologies cont
Available Information Technologies (Cont.)
  • PresentationPlus 3D by Loseke Technologies, Inc.
    • Show the clients the building in color and in three dimensions
    • Can modify the building from size to location of openings then show the clients the results instantly.
available information technologies cont11
Available Information Technologies (Cont.)
  • Integrated online system by steelbuilding.com
    • Customers can choose the building dimensions and roof pitch, and accessories
    • The computerized design and pricing system
    • Produce a color image of the building and an itemized price including delivery charges
    • Automatically calculate shipping charges
