If new houses cannot be debugged as a group on a mass-production assembly-line at a single factory location, like other products, then the only other option left is to debug each new single-family house and each new tract housing project individually one at a time.
This requires an applicable database of information consisting of illustrations and descriptions of past problems…universally generic to housing construction overall plus company-specific issues…to use before and during the construction…to replace the initial trial-runs that typically take place on mass-production assembly-lines.
This approach also aims to reduce the negative impact of isolated housing construction projects regarding the communication of debugging information within the industry.
This impact fosters the jealously guarded competitive advantage of expertise that belongs to builders, architects, interior designers, building trade subcontractors, tradespersons, and field superintendents…that comprises their hard-earned good reputation for producing high-quality work through mistake-avoidance.
But a new direction requires the recognition that debugging and quality go together to produce high-quality outcomes.
