Great article from our Founder and CEO at Modularize, Matthew Egan, as his recent article on business productivity and productization is picked up by PBC Today and the Offsite Alliance.
As industry thought leaders Modularize are quite often ahead of the curve but this last year  has really seen some big pieces of work coming together from government and industry which will really invoke a new wave of business productivity in construction.
The creation of the Product Platform Rulebook supports the implementation of the policies outlined in the Construction Playbook to increase product platforms in construction to help procure more MMC and deliver better social outcomes from our buildings.
Productization which Matthew describes as having standardisation within our business processes really fits in well with the product platform thinking as the UK construction industry still designs and constructs with a project mentality. So even though manufacturers have their own systems, they still change in every project and therefore drive inefficiencies such as procurement decisions been made late or the project objectives becoming diluted.
IN THE FULL ARTICLE MATTHEW EXPLAINS WHAT KEY CHANGES NEED TO BE CONSIDERED TO BRING ABOUT THIS “NEW WAVE OF BUSINESS PRODUCTIVITY IN THE CONSTRUCTION SECTOR” BY MOVING TO A PRODUCTISED OR PLATFORM APPROACH INCLUDING:-
New Product Development
Product Lifecycle Management
Product Data Management
Enterprise Resource Planning
Productization therefore optimises the whole process so efficiencies and cost savings can be made for both clients and manufacturers alike creating a Win-Win.
