Get some SSD's do you have high IOPS, keep the build media files local, next is to upgrade the RAM and CPU.
The SSD and CPU will defo help a lot, you need a high CPU spec to do the compression work.
Though if you can schedule it for overnight build, you can use command line options for installshield.

Decreasing the speed of building an MSI was on of the main goals in the previous release of your Application Packaging tool PACE Suite. With it, you can now build 5GB packages in 1 hour. We claim PACE Suite is the fastest MSI packaging tool out there - you can read more about out internal speed tests here: https://goo.gl/mr9QHt but better try it yourself and build a really large MSI package (the trial version is free and fully-functional).
