Integration-ready modules will transform the roles of general contractors, specialty contractors and the entire construction value chain.
The construction industry is facing extreme demands for speed, sustainability and customisation. The only way to meet these demands is to break free of the constraints of today’s trade-based prefabrication and subcontractor co-ordination mentalities. Productisation drives more value, offers more scalability and bypasses the financial sinkholes rampant in trade-based industrialised processes.
As productisation becomes more widespread, construction value-chain players will reorganise and collaborate more closely through virtual twins. General contractors will serve as prime integrators of multi-trade modules. Specialty contractors will morph into virtual makers. Microfactories will become more prevalent.
Forward-thinking business leaders are already adjusting their business models around virtualised processes, digital deliverables and off-cycle product management. Construction teams will ultimately maximise value with integration-ready construction modules, which include multi-trade assemblies, generative variants and standardised interfaces. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers the functionality necessary to support construction virtual twins, productisation and integration-ready modules.
