Construction-Oriented Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) Guidelines. Abstract The pursuit of modern product sophistication and production efficiency has bolstered Design 8 for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) around the world. Being both a design philosophy and 9 a methodology, DfMA has existed in manufacturing for decades. It is coming into vogue in 10 construction as a potential solution to the industry’s lackluster productivity amid enduring 11 exhortation of cross-sectoral learning…
