Effectively and efficiently delivering Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) to construction sites is an important issue to the RMC batch plant manager. The RMC batch plant manager has to consider both timeliness and flexibility to develop an efficient schedule of dispatching RMC trucks, which balances the...
In recent years, many new technological solutions have been introduced, aiming to improve the ability of buildings to satisfy a variety of needs of human beings and the environment. As a consequence, designing an optimal building has become more challenging than it has been before. In this...
Many human schedulers create schedules by reusing past similar schedules. The retrieval and reuse of similar schedules are subjective and experience-based. This paper explores different notions of similarity required when performing different scheduling tasks. It describes the CasePlan system...
Ground surface settlement is an important field measurement in deep excavation. The monitoring data are adopted to evaluate construction performance and to avoid large surface settlements incurred to adjacent structures. Due to the complicated geotechnical and construction factors affecting...
This article presents a novel autonomous system concept for automated construction of houses and other buildings via deposition of concrete and similar materials. The overall system consists of a novel cable-suspended mobility subsystem (a self-contained extension of the RoboCrane), a deposition...
The iterative and information-intensive nature of the design process makes it hard to plan and schedule work using tools for conventional project management. The success of design projects depends on the quality of the available information. This paper proposes DePlan as a method for integrated...
An optimization methodology that integrates discrete-event simulation (DES) with a heuristic algorithm is developed to optimize dynamic resource allocation for construction scheduling. This heuristic algorithm is based on the objective of minimizing project duration and would consider activating...
This paper describes the development of a Web-based construction Project Performance Monitoring System (PPMS) that aims to assist project managers in exercising construction project control. With the aid of a panel of project management specialists, the following project performance measure...
