Abstract

A productivity model for manufacturing tool installation has been developed under the auspices of the Construction Research and Education for Advanced Technology Environments at Arizona State University (CREATE). The model evaluates the man-hours required to install manufacturing tools. The prediction of the man-hours is based on variables such as type of design (2D CAD or manual vs 3D-CAD), description of connections, size of the tool and ease of penetration and routing through the waffle floor. The model has been implemented through a computer program called Design and Installation Time Calculator (DITC) and real-life data has been used to validate it. This article provides an analysis of the influence of the size of the manufacturing tools and the size of penetrations (pop-ups) on the productivity of tool installation design using DITC. The results are shown separately for three different trades: electrical, mechanical and piping. The analysis shows how each trade is influenced by changes in the size of the production tools and by how much.
