||Examples of product model transformations in construction
||Akbas R, Fischer M
||This paper discusses the results of a case study of product modeltransformations and geometric reasoning techniques for a challengingproject. The complex geometry in the Experience Music Project offersunique challenges in construction processes. Manual transformation of thedesign-centric product model prepared by the architect into a productionmodel for construction is time-consuming. We discuss ways to transform adesign view of a product model into a construction view emphasizing thevalue of product models supporting multiple views. Geometric reasoningaids in the planning, scheduling, coordination of the project, and modelingof temporary structures. We are developing methods to support theseproduct model transformations using the geometric model.
