Recently, researchers have reported that by the amalgamation of concepts of design for manufacturing and assembly (DfMA), construction practices and technologies can be further improved. As DfMA is based on the principles of optimization of materials and coordination. The optimization and coordination achieved through DfMA at the early design stage can significantly contribute best practices, reduce time and delays and improve safety, and thereby enhance the overall productivity of the prefabricated construction project. However, the literature on DfMA is limited in prefabricated construction. This paper presents an updated and comprehensive review of DfMA approaches and their applications i..View full abstract
