Journal of Construction Engineering, Management & Innovation (Online), vol.7, no.2, pp.112-126, 2024 (Peer-Reviewed Journal) identifier


In the dynamic landscape of the construction industry, the demand for efficient and precise project design methodologies has become paramount. Traditional approaches often struggle to cope with the complexities of contemporary projects, leading to delays, errors, and inefficiencies. This paper explores the evolution of parametric design methodologies, specifically focusing on the revolutionary TemesistCAD software developed to automate and optimize the modeling processes for warehouse and rack systems. Parametric design, characterized by dynamic adaptability through interconnected parameters, is showcased as a paradigm shift from labor-intensive conventional methods. The paper details the methodology of parametric design and its application in diverse industrial contexts, including Back-to-Back Racking, Mezzanine Racking, Radio Pallet Shuttle, Drive-In Racking, and Rack Clad Building Systems. It introduces the innovative TemesistCAD software, rooted in parametric principles, designed to streamline project workflows, reduce errors, and enhance precision in warehouse system designs. The software's application in various industrial scenarios is illustrated, emphasizing its versatility and effectiveness. When compared to other software in the warehouse and racking systems design field, TemesistCAD distinguish with its excellence in project design, manufacturing drawing preparation, and automated material takeoff generation. Its emphasis on parametric modeling not only addresses intricate design needs but also enhances accuracy in cost estimation and materials planning, ultimately optimizing workflow efficiency and minimizing project completion time.
