The extremely short delivery time forced us to prepare with parametric 3d drawings (Fusion360) and integrated BOM. This was necessary, because the walls and other construction tasks, like electric and water etc. only was finished less than 1 week before we should have finished our installation. Therefore we needed 2 times measurement ahead to start the drawings, till we could do the final measurements and adjust the production shortly. Integrated BOM (Bill of materials) also was very helpful to speed up the production process. Another effect of the very much detailled 3d drawings was, that errors in production were almost eliminated. The installation could be done with overtime in less than 2 weeks.
A new milestone has just been reached on the Yangpu campus with the delivery and assembly of furniture in classrooms, offices and common areas.
