New Venture Brings The Speed And Precision Of Car Manufacturing To Deliver More Housing
New Venture Brings The Speed And Precision Of Car Manufacturing To Deliver More Housing System P4 launches to set up modular construction factories across the globe, driving a more ... [ ] efficient, affordable way to deliver housing. While there have been many attempts to manufacture housing as well, there haven't been attempts that incorporate the experience, knowledge and machinery of car manufacturing. Today the launch of System P4, the first of its kind, predesigned housing factory system is here to demonstrate that it also can be done with housing. The four outfits that represent the P4 include everything a factory owner needs to get an off-the-shelf, automated modular housing operation up and running- people, products, preconstruction, and plants - designed by Waypaver, powered by KUKA technology, and backed by the P4 Housing Collective that includes Modular Maven, Effektiv House, Prefab Logic, and Waypaver. "A car has a couple thousand components, and the configuration mode is nearly endless," said Timo Heil, an expert in car manufacturing and CEO at KUKA. "There is a lot more complexity in the technology and options, along with a tougher scale on tolerances. Housing is a great and complex business because you are selling a family dwelling. Now, we can use mass customization with the modern technology and software we have so that family dreams can be customized, high quality and delivered on time." The Human Equation Automotive and modular construction industries team up. Recognizing the labor issues facing the country, the group believes that manufacturing housing will take the heavy lifting off of people and put it on machines, giving people a break to focus on more value-added responsibilities. Back to People Globally housing is at a tipping point where innovation is desperately needed to drive more supply at a more affordable price.
