Mission Critical infrastructure delivery is threatened by the increasing constraints in the supply chain, including labor, commodities, materials, and equipment availability. Offsite manufacturing, prefabrication, co-fabrication, and modular are all viable concepts attempting to solve for the challenges, but is it enough?
Using a panel format, we will discuss utilizing the supply chain data behind these concepts to make better informed decisions, thinking of your projects as products, and possible resulting alternative delivery models. We will explore these concepts from the traditional partners' perspectives including GCs, trade contractors, Owner procurement/supply chain management, AE teams, etc., to demonstrate how all parties work together to overcome the challenges while expanding on tried-and-true construction methods.
After attending the session, audience members will be able to answer some key questions in addition exploring the flexibility and predictability work packaging offers:
• Am I looking at my supply chain data at the right depth?
• Do I have productization opportunities in my infrastructure delivery program that could move the needle?
• Is my team capable of participating in a supply chain centric delivery model?
• Exposure to productization and work packaging concepts
