Abstract

Population growth and following by that, increasing the demands, lead the industries such as construction, to the manufacturing production. Prefabricating technology or Industrialized Building System (IBS) is the most effective process among manufacturing processes. This manufacturing process also can be employed for floating urbanization as a new approach of flood adaptation method. There is a high potential for applying IBS technology in floating urbanization. Thus, this study identified a strategic plan to look at IBS as an answer to a housing shortage problem and flood protection. The SWOT analysis has been employed to identify and evaluate the internal and external environments influencing on the IBS implementation for floating urbanization in Malaysia. The strategic plan is demonstrated on educational sector, R and D and manufacturing sector.
