KurzbeschreibungThis course offers an introduction and overview to Industrialized Construction, a rapidly-emerging concept in the construction industry. The course will present the driving forces, concepts, technologies, and managerial aspects of Industrialized Construction, with an emphasis on current industry applications and future entrepreneurial opportunities in the field.
LernzielBy the end of the course, students should be able to:
1. Describe the characteristics of the nine integrated areas of industrialized construction: planning and control of processes; developed technical systems; prefabrication; long-term relations; logistics; use of ICT; re-use of experience and measurements; customer and market focus; continuous improvement.
2. Assess case studies on successful or failed industry implementations of industrialized construction in Europe, Japan and North America.
3. Propose a framework for a new industrialized construction company for a segment of the industrialized construction market (e.g. housing, commercial, schools) including the company’s business model, technical platform, and supply chain strategy.
4. Identify future trends in industrialized construction including the use of design automation, digital fabrication, and Industry 4.0.
InhaltThe application of Industrialized Construction - also referred to as prefabrication, offsite building, or modular construction – is rapidly increasing in the industry. Although the promise of industrialized construction has long gone unrealized, several market indicators show that this method of construction is quickly growing around the world. Industrialized Construction offers potential for increased productivity, efficiency, innovation, and safety on the construction site. The course will present the driving forces, concepts, technologies, and managerial aspects of Industrialized Construction. The course unpacks project-orientated vs. product-oriented approaches while showcasing process and technology platforms used by companies in Europe, the UK, Japan, and North America. The course highlights future business models and entrepreneurial opportunities for new industrialized construction ventures.

The course is organized around a group project carried out in teams of 3-4. Each specific class will include some theory about industrialized construction from a strategic and/or technological perspective. There will be several external guest lectures as well. During the last hour of the course, students will work in project teams to propose a framework for a new industrialized construction venture. The teams will need to determine their new company’s product offering, business model, technical platform, technology solutions, and supply chain strategy.

It is intended to hold a group excursion to a factory for a 1/2 day visit. However in 2021, this will be determined pending the status of COVID-19 restrictions. planned course activities include a 1/2 day factory visit Students who are unable to attend the visit can make up participation through independent research and the writing of a short paper.

101-0526-00LIntroduction to Visual Machine Perception for Architecture, Construction and Facility Management Information W3 KP2GI. Armeni
KurzbeschreibungThe course is an introduction to Visual Machine Perception technology, and specifically Computer Vision and Machine Learning, for Architecture, Construction, and Facility Management (ACFM). It will explore fundamentals in these Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in a tight reference to three applications in ACFM, namely architectural design, construction renovation, and facility management.
LernzielBy the end of the course students will develop computational thinking related to visual machine perception applications for the ACFM domain. Specifically, they will:

-Gain a fundamental understanding of how this technology works and the impact it can have in the ACFM industry by being exposed to example applications.
-Be able to identify limitations, pitfalls, and bottlenecks in these applications.
-Critically think on solutions for the above issues.
-Acquire hands-on experience in creatively thinking and designing an application given a base system.
-Use this course as a “stepping-stone” or entry-point to Machine Learning-intensive courses offered in D-BAUG and D-ARCH.
InhaltThe past few years a lot of discussion has been sparked on AI in the Architecture, Construction, and Facility Management (ACFM) industry. Despite advancements in this interdisciplinary field, we still have not answered fundamental questions about adopting and adapting AI technology for ACFM. In order to achieve this, we need to be equipped with rudimentary knowledge of how this technology works and what are essential points to consider when applying AI to this specific domain.

In addition, the availability of sensors that collect visual data in commodity hardware (e.g., mobile phone and tablet), is creating an even bigger pressure in identifying ways that new technology can be leveraged to increase efficiency and decrease risk in this trillion-dollar industry. However, cautious and well-thought steps need to be taken in the right direction, in order for such technologies to thrive in an industry that showcases inertia in technological adoption.

The course will unfold as two parallel storylines that intersect in multiple places:
1) The first storyline will introduce fundamentals in computer vision and machine learning technology, as building blocks that one should consider when developing related applications. These blocks will be discussed with respect to latest developments (e.g., deep neural networks), pointing out their impact in the final solution.

2) The second storyline consists of 3 ACFM processes, namely architectural design, construction renovation, and facility management. These processes will serve as application examples of the technological storyline.
In the points of connection students will see the importance of taking into account the application requirements when designing an AI system, as well as their impact on the building blocks. Guest speakers from both the AI and ACFM domains will complement the lectures.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThe course does not require any background in AI, Computer Science, coding, or the ACFM domain. It is designed for students of any background and knowledge on these topics. Despite being an introductory class, it will still engage advanced students in the aforementioned topics.
