Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to develop methods in the design of roundabouts that can be used in early conceptual phases of infrastructural projects to avoid erroneous solutions propagating downstream the value chain. Adapting theory and principals from mass customization and design configuration, a configurator for roundabouts to be used in early phases was developed and validated in a live project. The configurator is built in SolidWorks and parametrically coupled to the use of Tacton Studio. The configurator generates a drawing and a protocol that informs the user of the chosen configuration and where it doesn’t conform to the Swedish standards.In conclusion, it is possible to use theories from mass customization to develop configurators that can simplify the design process and thus evaluating the design according to norms and standards in early phases of the project. In the search for increased efficiency within infrastructural projects, parametric modeling configurators can be used to speed up the design process and expand the range of alternatives that can be generated. In that sense, this article contributes to the understanding of how mass customization principles in general can be used in construction and how it can be implemented in the design of specific projects.
