The technical, architectural goals and realisation of industrialised building changed most during the 1980s and 1990s. The current technology is flexible for individual architectural designs also allowing easy alterations during use, future changes, and modernisation. For this aim, systematic modular design and products are applied, including dimensional modularity, tolerance system, compatible joints and use of modular products. As technical tools, highly mechanised and automated methods are increasingly applied to the manufacture of components in factories, as well as in assembly and some phases of on site manufacturing. Computerisation is increasingly applied in the entire building process: in analysis, design, manufacturing, production and operation.
