dc.description.abstract Dimensional coordination is shown to be a tool which can help to organize different building components manufactured independently into an integrated whole, and to improve flexibility in the use of these products. Modular coordination is defined as the ultimate goal of dimensional coordination. A review of existing coordination methods shows that the freedom of architectural design would be limited if dimensional coordination problems are approached solely from mathematical points of view. To avoid this, a coordination process is developed to systematically and comprehensively handle the dimensional coordination problem for industrialized buildings. This coordination process is applied to the metal building industry in Houston to establish a new dimensional system for the industry. This new dimensional system can improve the flexibility and compatibility of the existing metal building products.
