Updating an old industry

  1. 1. Updating an IndustryComposite Building Structures, Ltd. James P. Antonic – President & CEO
  2. 2. Update & Impact - Requirements • Holistic Approach – 1 - Materials • Composites – 2- System • Panel Jigs – 3 - Methods • Assembly lines • Integrated Assembly – Improved Quality & Resistance • Engineering – Faster Output • Logistics
  3. 3. Background • Introductions• Midwest Ethics – Materials – Metal Casting – Systems – Experimental Psychology – Methods – Chemical Manufacturing • Locations• Production Lines – Europe – Automotive – Mid-East – Farm Implement – East Asia – India• International – Market Developments • Hands-on – Manage to Profit• Work – Resins in Europe – New Technologies – Housing in Japan – Problem Solving – JIT with Toyoda
  4. 4. Market Values - Research 51,500 Cars Each
  5. 5. US Conditions - Research• Problems • Fixes – Hurricanes – What to use – Earthquakes – Best material – Floods – Best method – Tsunami – Best system – Mud Slides – Scalable supply – Termites – High production – Mold – Low skill levels – Rodents – Overcome needs – Fire – Penetrate rapidly – Energy Use – License & JV – Carbon Footprint – Search for – IAQ Optimum-Solutions – Sustainability – Planet Friendly
  6. 6. What’s Wrong - Research• Prone to Disasters • Inefficient Operations – Minimal automation – Failures – Use old traditions – Insurance rates – Raw material cost cycles• Materials are Minimized • Piecemeal Innovations – Collapse, Crush, & Maim – Band-Aids – Costly Recycle & Reuse – Cosmetic changes – Not Optimized for Use – Same trades & skills• Ruled by Lowest Cost • Suppliers & Users – Buy materials locally – Protect livelihood – Best is readily convenient – Protect know-how – Focus on cutting trade labor costs – Maintain Comfort – Fear Innovation Improve quality-Maintain costs / Build faster- Use same people
  7. 7. Best Fits - Research• Best Alternatives • Universal Mandates – Ideal Material – Tree-free – Ideal Method – China-proof – Ideal System – Sustainable materials – Most Profitable – Best cost/performance – No loss of – Better quality control professionals – More uniform quality or trades – More supervision – Better systems for – Train appropriate repetitive tasks to task Control Business Protect Markets
  8. 8. 1. Select - Optimum Material• Wood• Aluminum• Steel• Concrete Block• Cast Concrete• Foam Concrete• Composites – in ladders
  9. 9. Ideal Building Material 2/13/2013 9
  10. 10. How Wood, Steel, & Blocks Fit 2/13/2013 10
  11. 11. How Optimized Composites Fit 2/13/2013 11
  12. 12. How Properties are Optimized Performance through Chemistry Strength through Design
  13. 13. Selecting Manufacturing
  14. 14. Designing to Replace & Improve
  15. 15. Increasing Performance
  16. 16. Continuous ProcessingStop Cutting Trees
  17. 17. Running Fibers End-to-End
  18. 18. Fitting Materials to Applications Stronger – Safer Longer-Lasting Best life-cycle cost of any construction material Best cost-performance of any construction material Pultrusion Bridges Pultrusion I-Beam 18
  19. 19. 2. Find - Most Economical System • On-site systems – Wood, Steel, Clay, Straw, • Tip-ups on-site • Cast-in-place on-site • Tip-ups from plant • Panels from plant • SIP panels from plant • Modulars from plant
  20. 20. LoweringProductionCosts
  21. 21. Analyzing Current Efficiencies
  22. 22. Changing Architectural Drawings
  23. 23. Requiring Engineered Prints
  24. 24. PEs Approving Layouts
  25. 25. Cutting Material Consumption 1 ton of composites use 650 pounds (295 Kg) of resin = 3 tanks of gas for your car*2,000 ft2 (186 m2) disaster resistant home
  26. 26. Transporting in High DensityStuds for one 3,000 ft2 (280 m2) home8ft long x 42in wide x 28in high pallet Weight = 1,400 pounds (635 Kg) Approximately 20 pallets/container
  27. 27. Improving Profitability
  28. 28. 3. Find - Ideal Building Method• Building Goals • Build Custom or Tract – Without measuring Homes at High Output – Any size, style, or – Target architecture • Developers – At same production-line • Architects speed (Ft/Min) • Designers • Engineers – For all levels • Projects • high end homes • Governments • work force housing • Many Other Users • Social housing • Government squatter projects
  29. 29. Rethink Methods Horizontal to Vertical – High to Low Space & Energy
  30. 30. Rapidly Produce Using Universal Structural-Support Skeletons
  31. 31. Simplify Methods – Use Few Tools Saws for Panels
  32. 32. Adobe and Waddle&Daub WallsScrew Guns for All Assembly
  33. 33. Shear Wall Perimeters Manual Conveyors & Movers
  34. 34. Global Customers• What they build is not important• How they build it is important – When Henry Ford asked his customers "What do you want?" The answer was a faster horse. – When Steve Jobs was asked "What do your customers want?" The answer was, “They won’t know what they want until I show it to them.”
  35. 35. Requirements for Change• Continuous Improvement – Embrace future opportunities – Empower a common vision – Produce useful change• Thoughtful Management – Planning & Budgeting – Structuring & Staffing – Performance & Measurement – Goods & Services Production
  36. 36. Updating an Industry Summary1. No country can continue to build in the same old ways2. Progress requires holistic integration of materials-methods-systems3. Composites will become the universal framing material of choice – This is a disruptive technology! – The Game is Changing! – – Opportunities Abound!
  37. 37. Updating & Changing an Industry Is not for sissies or cowardsInvest in your Future with Holistic Building Improvements
