How the DfMA design process is different.
Traditional onsite construction design starts on the outside of the building and works its way to the inside. This design process is generally linear with set phases of design such as, concept, preliminary design, developed design and finally detailed design. These design phases have distinct aims which overlap to but often lack a full system approach. This does not encourage high-level collaboration that includes all stake holders and tends to increase risk and cost with one off or improvised problem solving happening during construction.
The design process for DfMA allows a great deal more integration and is more system focused with a strong emphasis on balancing performance versus cost. This means multiple but related variables can be considered at the same point in time. This vastly reduces post design changes and therefore reduces costs and time consuming delays.
Accordingly, the decision-making process for all products and components is front loaded into the design process (i.e. bathroom layouts, specs, electrical layouts, joinery colour etc) rather than left to a later stage of design.
The overall outcome of DfMA design is to produce a repeatable house design that is better quality at a more accurate cost, faster.
