- Current research interests
- Dr. Alwisy’s research interests lie in developing and assessing sustainable practices that capture the future of intelligent design and manufacturing systems by establishing the scientific and technological foundations for uncertain, human-centric processes in industrialized construction. His research will take advantage of recent advances in Robotics, Sensing Technologies, Machine Learning (ML), Augmented/Virtual/Mixed reality (AR/VR/MR), Simulation, and Lean Manufacturing to promote the shift towards industrialized construction by reducing the expense of the design, manufacturing process, and system control. Dr. Alwisy has largely contributed to construction automation by the development of the first-in-the-nation Robotic Station for the framing and installation of industrialized construction that utilizes patented robotic systems and methods. Additionally, Dr. Alwisy developed innovative BIM technologies, such as BIM- and knowledge-based drafting and design for manufacturing, performance-based target cost modeling system, and computational energy-based generative design framework.

- Smart Industrialized Design and Construction (IDC) Lab
- The main research interests of this lab lie in the Digitization of the Multidisciplinary Design & Construction Processes of Industrialized Projects (Modular & Panelized Construction) in order to develop and assess sustainable practices in the construction industry that dynamically and interactively improve the performance metrics of buildings while seeking to reduce the overall lifecycle cost.
To achieve a true shift towards the industrialization of construction projects, we plan to develop innovative frameworks and paradigms that bridge the gap between the state-of-art and state-of-practice with regard to leading construction management techniques, specifically Industry 4.0 technologies. As such, the pursuit of the digitization of the design & construction processes is expected to continually promote the adaptation of new concepts by introducing automated and semi-automated tools that simplify the implementation process for construction practitioners.
