Abstract

This paper aims to provide a visual model with design parameters that are specific tomanufacturing to reduce waste in the design stage of a construction project. Moreconstruction companies are interested in reducing waste and increasing efficiency.However, one of the main barriers that prevent the construction industry from adoptingmore technological solutions for its projects is not being clear about the direct benefitsthat would be obtained. This paper proposes using design parameters applied in a user-friendly visual model to choose the benefit to obtain for designing a construction project.These benefits are displayed as key performance indicator (KPI) options for theconstruction project. An analysis was carried out in a matrix to obtain the most relevantdesign parameters for a robotic cell in offsite construction from a manufacturing (notarchitectural or visual/aesthetic) point of view. Additionally, the visual model is designedusing a data visualization structure. The limit of the investigation involves not having thevisual tool validated in a case of a real construction company. Additionally, the visualtool is only a guide that is not quantified.
