Abstract

Walt Disney Imagineering is adopting Multi-Disciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) to enhance the delivery of highly complex and creatively-driven construction projects. This novel application of MDO has been piloted on structural steel scope that is tightly coupled with creative design iteration, and is projected to reduce hard cost by 25-30% and design cycle time by 99%. This talk will discuss the motivations, technical and organizational challenges, and benefits of setting up an optimization process within an Integrated Project Delivery environment.
