The Australian mining industry has introduced a new set of requirements on the construction industry in the fabrication and assembly of temporary dwellings for employees in rural areas. However, requirements such as rapid multi-site development, late customization, transportation and finalassembly within very strict deadlines have resulted in many project failures and lost revenue. This paper outlines some proposals for the mining and construction industries that are seeking to develop new modes of operation which promote; multisite development, track and trace visibility of manufacturingoperations and their supply-chain.
