Start: July 15, 2000
Manufactured homes are built within an assembly plant under a controlled environment that provides safe and productive construction. "Manufactured Housing" has played a critical role in meeting the rapidly growing housing demand over the last 20-25 years. In spite of the growing market and need for efficient production, manufactured housing industry is faced with the lack of streamlined assembly process and the flow and utilization of materials in the production process.
The proposed research consists of five objectives:
This research will have direct influence on two of the four path goals related to affordability and durability/quality, and indirect influence on the other two goals related to energy efficiency and safety.
