Tekla-NTU Precast BIM Productivity Seminar Series

Applying BIM to Precast Production and Management to Improve Efficiency 

The strong growth of construction activities in Singapore and the region against the shrinking resource, skilled labour and tight timeline has turned the spotlight on Precast again to achieve higher productivity and sustainability.

Use of BIM in Precast industry has already gained traction, with some fabricators already reaping benefits from higher efficiency and effectiveness in their Engineering and bidding processes. With these processes typically contributing only 5% of the overall business cost, there is large opportunity for productivity improvement in the management, production and post production processes of Precast fabrication.

This Seminar aims to provide participants with an introduction to the resource management systems and machinery automation commonly used in Precast Fabrication and how they can be integrated to BIM and other processes to bring about higher productivity, efficiency and level of service. Precast Fabricators with interest in deploying, enhancing or integrating their resource planning solution and production automation will benefit from this seminar the most.
