Construction as Production - Award Student (DAB19008)


<p>There are increasing calls for construction processes to mimic the efficiency of production technologies but uptake in global terms, is still relatively slow.</p> <p>The purpose of this subject is to more effectively adopt industrialised production principles in construction practices, to make it more efficient and cost effective. It deals not only with offsite prefabrication processes, but how onsite processes and planning, must change as well. It includes attention to client led needs, mass customisation, modularisation, design for manufacture and assembly principles, supply chain strategies, logistics, identifying opportunities for production orientated methods and the use of digital technologies to link end-to-end delivery processes.<p><br></p> <h2 id="program-topics">Program Topics</h2> <p>The subject provides a shared understanding about construction projects and how/where/when there is opportunity to apply production principles. It includes self-paced online learning and an intensive 1.5 day workshop.</p> <p>The online learning uses structured reading materials, videos, podcasts and interviews. The 1.5 day workshop builds on the above principles by applying them to real world construction contexts. This is via guest speakers, worked case studies and activities that help participants to apply key concepts in practice.</p> <ul> <li><p><b>Module 1 </b>(self paced/online): sets the construction business context by identifying where tensions exist between production idealism and project realities. It helps identify constraints and a pathway forward.</p> </li> <li><p><b>Module 2 </b>(self paced/online): deals with finding opportunities within Projects for production orientated methods at a strategic level and includes decisions around cost, the need for speed, balancing where the work takes place and the importance of having a supply chain strategy.</p> </li> <li><p><b>Module 3</b> (self paced/online): deals with planning, detailing the design and offsite production principles.</p> </li> <li><p><b>Module 4</b> (Interactive, 1.5 day Workshop): focuses upon translating principles into practice; it includes application of mass customisation and design for manufacture and assembly principles, cost estimating and workflow programming and, dealing with NCC compliance issues.</p> </li> </ul> <p>The subject is based on a diverse evidence-base spanning the state of the art from not only Australia, but countries such as Canada, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Scotland, England, the United States and New Zealand.</p> <p>The emphasis is upon understanding how and where the business case for production orientated methods are most potent, how this converts to a systematic and process driven approach, and where to focus efforts in order to achieve improvement.</p> <p>The subject aims to engage students and reflective practitioners who want “beyond superficial” understanding concerning both the technical and commercial issues involved.</p> <h2 id="course-outcomes">Course Outcomes</h2> <ul> <li><p>Identify and analyse the business proposition in changing from traditional labour-based approaches to onsite construction, to a more production orientated approaches that include offsite and onsite techniques.</p> </li> <li><p>Analyse and model changes to onsite work flows when changing to production orientated approaches</p> </li> <li><p>Articulate the importance of digital technology in facilitating information flows for design-to-production-to-construction processes.</p> </li> <li><p>Identify the main principles associated with Design for Manufacture and Assembly, mass customisation, modularisation and product platforms</p> </li> <li><p>Demonstrate a practical understanding of how to apply the above in practice</p> </li> </ul> <p><br> <h2 id="why-you-should-do-this-course">Why You Should Do This Course</h2> <p>This course is particularly useful for:</p> <ul> <li><p>Construction project managers</p> </li> <li><p>Design managers</p> </li> <li><p>Building development managers</p> </li> <li><p>Architects interested in industrialisation of construction processes</p> </li> <li><p>Clients who want to get more involved in delivery processes</p> </li> <li><p>Cost estimators</p> </li> <li><p>Fabricators</p> </li> <li><p>Material suppliers.</p> </li> </ul> <h2 id="about-the-presenter">About the Presenter</h2> <p><b>Professor Perry Forsythe</b> has over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry. He has real world industry experience having begun as a Carpenter and foreman, followed by a range of senior managerial and consultancy roles.</p> <p>His long term academic role as the Professor of Construction Management at UTS, has focused upon construction innovation, modern methods of construction and improved productivity. He has worked closely with industry in providing applied outcomes in these areas. He will be joined by a range of industry speakers.</p> <h2 id="other-information">Other Information</h2> <p>1.5 day Face-to-face workshop conducted 21-22 October 2019 (Note: workshop finishes at lunch time 22 October)</p> <p>5-6 hour online learning content (Note: this content will become available after 4 October until 15 November; it is recommended that this be undertaken prior to the workshop for best effect)</p> <p>This not a beginners course for people who are new to construction. It targets those with:</p> <ul> <li><p>At least 3 years experience with construction management and onsite processes.</p> </li> <li><p>A Bachelor’s degree in a subject area related to construction, building design, production, process management, project management, supply chain management (Note: other qualifications may be acceptable on application).</p> </li> </ul> <p>Contact (<a href="mailto:short.courses@uts.edu.au?subject= Construction as Production">perry.forsythe@uts.edu.au</a>) if you are unsure or believe you have matching experience from other sources.</p> <p><b>Recognition from attending (including award and non-award students)</B></p> <ul> <li><p>Non-award students: includes those participants seeking a Certificate of attendance i.e. for their employer or the ability to use the certificate to seek CPD points from professional bodies such as AIB, AIA, API, PMI, and RICS (each publishes its own formal and informal CPD requirements).</p> </li> <li><p>Award students: relates to those seeking formal recognition of learning from UTS, that may be used as a part of pursuing a specific degree program at UTS. In this context, the subject can be used as &quot;Recognised Prior Learning&quot; which can be undertaken instead of elective subjects in designated degree Program within the School of the Built Environment. This includes the Graduate Diploma of Construction Management, Master of Property Development, Master of Project Management or Bachelor of Construction Management. Issues of importance:</p> </li> </ul> <ul><ul><LI>Enrolment is separate to the normal subjects in your degree program <br><p><li>Timing is not based on semesters, but rather, when the subject is offered externally. <br><p><li>You need to apply for RPL in advance of taking the subject to confirm suitability. This is done via an RPL Application Form that can be provided by the subject coordinator (<a href="mailto:short.courses@uts.edu.au?subject= Construction as Production">perry.forsythe@uts.edu.au</a>). Once submitted, the subject coordinator will liaise with your program director (of the degree program that you are aligned with), about confirming RPL. <br><p><li>Assessment for award students is more comprehensive than non-award students. </ul></ul> <h2 id="date-and-time">Date and Time</h2> <ul> <li>Monday 21 October</li> </ul> <p><ul><ul><li> 8:30 am to 5:15 pm</ul></ul> <ul> <li>Tuesday 22 October</li> </ul> <p><ul><ul><li> 8:30 am to 12:30 pm</ul></ul> <p><br><h2>Fees and Payment</h3></p> <ul> <li>$2,727</li> </ul> <p><h3>Payment Options:</h4></p> <ul><li>Pay by <b>Credit Card</b> – Please proceed to the 'BOOK NOW' button and follow the prompts <p><li>To request an <b>Invoice</b> - Please email it to <a href="mailto:short.courses@uts.edu.au?subject=Invoice Request"> UTS:Short Courses</a><br> <p><ul><li>Invoice payment needs to be paid prior to attending the course</b> <p><li> If you wish to enrol into the course <b>7 days prior to course commencement</b> then payment will have to made by <b>Credit Card </b>only.
