Ph.D. Candidate in Construction Engineering
The steel construction industry is underperforming in terms of productivity. For many authors, the main reason is fragmentation, a consequence of a traditional way of doing projects. Fragmentation prevents builders from interacting with builders during projects to reduce waste in the construction process. The result is poorly designed projects that are unsuitable for the means of construction. In the manufacturing industry, designers and manufacturers communicate through design rules. These rules allow for better consideration of manufacturing constraints during design to reduce project cost and time. The result of this process offers up to 57% reduction in manufacturing time. This thesis aims to propose design rules in the structural steel industry to better account for manufacturing constraints during design. To achieve its objectives, this thesis proposes the identification of the knowledge of steel structure manufacturers. This knowledge will be the basis of the proposed design rules.
