Examples of product model transformations in construction

Abstract: This paper discusses the results of a case study of product model transformations and geometric reasoning techniques for a challenging project. The complex geometry in the Experience Music Project offers unique challenges in construction processes. Manual transformation of the design-centric product model prepared by the architect into a production model for construction is time-consuming. We discuss ways to transform a design view of a product model into a construction view emphasizing the value of product models supporting multiple views. Geometric reasoning aids in the planning, scheduling, coordination of the project, and modeling of temporary structures. We are developing methods to support these product model transformations using the geometric model.
