This article presents a methodological approach which helped the software development of an architectural modeler that aims to support the life cycle of buildings with a modular construction system. The modeler assists the building composition processes, the production of useful documents like drawing plans, quantities and specifications, and the evaluation of the thermal performance of the building at any phase of its design. Conducted within a multidisciplinary team of architects engineers, computer engineers and ergonomists, this methodology is based on a constant interaction between the various skills, so that the different perspectives are systematically integrated into the decision process. The methodology is based on the analysis of three fields of functions (composition - production and evaluation) which are considered simultaneously through a theoretical framework stemming from ergonomics: Activity Theory [Engeström 1987]. At first, the software development context is presented. Then, the choice of the Activity Theory as a framework for the analysis will be motivated. The next section relates the multiple concepts of the methodology to each others, in order to identify the principles as well as the inputs and the outputs. Each step in its implementation is then described, followed by the results in terms of the software interface. Finally, the discussion that will follow will consider the contributions and limitations of this methodological approach in the understanding of a system, in order to offer an efficient IT support.

In this article, we present a Building Information Modeler essential for creating, viewing and evaluating the performance of a modular building project, based on a digital model. First, we explain our approach, called "by components" and its central notion of "catalog", capable of supporting the virtualization of the construction system in the modeler. Secondly, we describe the software architecture established for this original modeller, based on a dual-purpose data model: representing the catalogs of components and allowing the encoding of a specific project within the software. Then, our article will introduce the products obtained, in terms of operating geometric and semantic information from the catalog components. In particular, it will show how, depending on the driving activity types, these productions can be generated under different operating formats. Finally, the article will introduce the limits of this Building Information Modeler and the future opportunities provided by its extensibility. [less ▲]

CIMEDE is a wooden industrialized building system focused on modularity, sustainability and cost effectiveness. This paper presents an applied research project focused on the implementation of software able to efficiently assist the various stakeholders involved in the design and the construction of CIMEDE housings (architects, clients, process managers, builders, factory workers...). The main objective is to develop an easy to use and bespoke 3D CAD modeler addressing the multiple stakeholder’s needs, and able to integrate the whole complex process of industrialization. [less ▲]

The main scope of this applied research project was to implement a software platform able to efficiently assist the various stakeholders (architects, clients, process managers, builders, factory workers, etc.) involved in the life-cycle of CIMEDE housings. CIMEDE is an industrialized building system focused on modularity, sustainability and cost effectiveness. Our contribution consisted mostly in analyzing (ergonomics, UI, interactions) and implementing a bespoke 3D CAD modeler tailored to the CIMEDE industrialized building system and the specific needs of future users.
