Project Background

This project funded by ITC proposes to develop an RFID-enabled service-oriented BIM platform for enhancing prefabrication housing production in Hong Kong. The research project is collaborated by Prof. George Huang in Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Prof. Thomas Ng in Department of Civil Engineering, Dr. Wilson Lu in Department of Real Estate and Construction at the University of Hong Kong, Prof. Geoffrey Shen at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and Hong Kong Housing Authority.

The platform provides three sets of innovative technical deliverables. The first set includes core technologies that help creating smart construction infrastructure to capture real-time construction data. The second set includes service-oriented decision support systems for facilitating decisions and operations at three key stages of the house production (prefab manufacture, prefab logistics, and on-site assembly). The third set includes real-time information traceability, visibility and interoperability tools that integrate and interact the platform with existing information systems.

Main Objectives

Seamless communication and coordination

among multiple stakeholders through improved information interoperability between processes.

More efficient cross-border prefabrication

logistic and supply chain management (LSCM) through improved its real-time information visibility and traceability.
