Expert will work alongside the client’s design and architectural teams in order to accurately assess and influence the product at the design stage employing design for manufacture (DFM) and lean principles. This way, Expert are able to generate the most efficient factory-based manufacturing process for all elements of modular-built accommodation.
We will further work with the client to develop optimal processes for the on-site construction phase, with specific aims of productionising the on site erection of the modular units, bringing standard operating procedures and the requisite temporary reusable construction tooling into what has formerly been a skilled craftsman-reliant environment.
By engaging early with the design teams and assessing the design-for-assembly readiness of the product, Expert will be able to ensure that the factory-manufactured modules are erected and completed in a cost-effective, quality controlled manner.
Expert will develop an overall industrialisation roadmap that realises the client’s volume forecast proposal. This roadmap will form the basis of an industrialisation strategy, which will see the appropriate levels of process automation applied to the manufacturing facility in line with the volume growth plans of the project and will layer an overall manufacturing solution for each.
