Productizing Your Company 

Available Dates & Times

Every construction project is considered an individual prototype. Though every project is unique, most of the features in a building are repeatable, so they are built as prototypes each time. This session will explain how companies take simplification and apply it to their design and fabrication processes using VDC and manufacturer partners. One success includes a generic product catalog of typical items, including carrier units, stub outs, shower valves, and laundry basins for advanced production and flexibility.
