CEE 243 – Query 6 Intel Group Saurabh Samdani, Jack Cheng, John Brooks, Richard Jones 1 Overview Intel Fab11x renovation John Brooks, Jack Cheng, Richard Jones, Saurabh Samdani
The purpose of this project is to use Virtual Design and Construction tools to analyze the implementation of a more efficient way to transport chips around Fabrication Plant 11x in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We will evaluate two alternatives: an Automated Material Handling System and a Conveyor Belt System. We will use a 3D model of the current building to create a walkthrough of the proposed path of these two systems in order to predict their serviceability. Furthermore, we shall use SimVision and other scheduling tools to predict various parameters such as: organizational cost, actor backlog, project risk, hidden work, and project end date. A 4D model will be implemented to predict constructability. We shall provide Intel with a new method of planning, and a fresh set of tools to consider using on future construction projects.
