The course presents the industrialisation of the building process in a historical and contemporary perspective with emphasis on house building. Industrialised Building with its directions like Systems building, Lean Construction and Supply Chain Management is discussed and assessed for different project categories. Differences between industrialised and traditional building is discussed. The relations between product development for a process and product platform and the building design process, as well as control of the processes are discussed. In a group work a case study is carried out with the objective to assess and characterise the degree of industrialisation in a current building project. The results are presented in exercises and an essay.
