Abstract

Mass customization, while common in other industries, has yet to find widespread adoption in the housing industry. Current methods of mass customization are either labour-intensive or allow only a limited degree of freedom. In this paper, we look at a method of mass customization that allows buyers to make modifications to the design of their house, after which the new design is automatically checked against building regulations and the architect’s requirements.
