TNO Bouw Publication year 2007 Abstract This chapter focuses on the manner in which examples for the ManuBuild Building Systems have been evaluated. The development of ManuBuild Building Systems does not start in a tabula rasa situation. Open Building is an area where quite some attempts have been made in the past and where there are several building systems currently being used in the market that can provide ManuBuild with some valuable lessons. Furthermore, these examples can also guide industrial partners developing their own industrialised concept. A comparison was made of building concepts currently available on the market. The parameters chosen for the comparison were based on the requirements necessary for the inventory of requirements for the ManuBuild System framework. In order to be able to score the different examples, not only on performance of the building system, but also as a complete entity on its overall performance, an evaluation method that included manufacturing process, business concept and related services was necessary. By analyzing where these current systems score high or low, it can be easily determined whether or not and where they can potentially be used as inspiring examples. As a result, an evaluation tool was developed in order to evaluate current best practices. This tool can be used to set the aims and wishes for a ManuBuild System that an industrial partner is planning to develop Subject Buildings and InfrastructureArchitectureBuilt Environment To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:44741dbe-300f-4cab-8e9a-2c3aba42e8ac TNO identifier 331322 Source Open Building Manufacturing: Core concepts and industrial requirements, 15-33 Document type bookPart Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
