AbstractThe pursuit of modern product sophistication and production efficiency has bolstered design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) around the world. Being both a design philosophy and a methodology, DfMA has existed in manufacturing for decades. It is coming into vogue in construction as a potential solution to the industry’s lackluster productivity amid enduring exhortation of cross-sectoral learning. However, many studies of DfMA in construction are still simply following the DfMA guidelines developed from manufacturing without adequately considering important differences between the two sectors of construction and manufacturing. This study aims to develop a series of construction-oriented DfMA guidelines by adopting a mixed-method approach. It critiques existing DfMA guidelines in relation to the characteristics of construction and further argues that construction-oriented DfMA should consider five fundamental aspects: contextual basis, technology rationalization, logistics optimization, component integration, and material-lightening, either individually or collectively. A case study is then conducted to substantiate and verify the feasibility of these guidelines. This research sheds new light on the cross-sectoral learning of DfMA from manufacturing to construction. The guidelines can be used as the benchmark for the evaluation of manufacturability and assemblability in practice. It also opens up a new avenue for further DfMA studies in construction.
