Abstract
Manufacturing equipment ranges from manual, semi-automated to fully automated. Software developers have developed suites of applications for structural design, computer aided design/drafting (CAD), computer aided manufacturing (CAM), building information modeling (BIM), and communication protocols to link production machineries. To further improve production process and material handling, it is essential to rationalize the sectors, review the current status, and identify technology gaps.

Abstract
Les usines de construction modulaire fabriquent des composantes structurales comme des fermes de toit ou des panneaux de mur ou de plancher qu’elles assemblent en modules soumis à une finition avant d’être expédiés à un chantier. Les usines de construction par panneaux produisent de grandes quantités de panneaux de mur ou de plancher qui sont assemblés sur place.

Abstract
In fiscal year 2019-2020, FPInnovations developed an Industrialized Construction Research Roadmap to explore, test and deploy innovative products, technologies, tools, processes and practices that have the potential to enable the transformation of the Canadian wood building industry towards higher levels of industrialized construction. One of the activities currently in progress focuses on the identification of manufacturing equipment and software suppliers.

Abstract
Au cours de l’exercice 2019-2020, FPInnovations a élaboré une feuille de route pour la recherche sur la construction industrialisée afin d'étudier ses sous-aspects, de mettre à l’essai et de déployer des produits, des technologies, des outils, des pratiques et des processus novateurs susceptibles d’épauler la transformation de l'industrie canadienne de la construction en bois vers des niveaux plus élevés d’industrialisation (construction préfabriquée hors site), et ce, en étroite collaboration avec ses partenaires. Cette feuille de route s'appuie sur une série d'études techniques fondamentales réalisées précédemment.
