Automation technologies are widespread within many manufacturing sectors today. It is widely accepted that some of these technologies can be implemented in the industrialized housing industry. The efficiency and productivity of this industry can be improved by employing existing as well as emerging automation technologies available on the market today. This paper presents current technologies already being used in other areas of construction as well as those under research and development. Finally, a concept for the 21st century industrialized housing manufacturing facility is presented, depicting advanced automation and information technologies including computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), material requirements planning (MRP), automated material handling and control systems. In addition, a conceptual layout of this facility is presented.
