Virtual construction for automated schedule generation

Abstract: Ongoing research in automated schedule generation does not allow for interactive user input sessions to translate design information required for sequencing project activities. Rather, current research has focused on capturing, among other things, design knowledge through interpreting 2D drawings and/or 3D CAD models to develop intelligent schedule generation tools. Further, many of these tools do not address the importance of schedule development during the design phase. In this paper the authors introduce "virtual construction" sessions for re-assembling of 3D CAD models in a virtual environment. This will allow for capturing and recording user input for automatic generation of project schedules.

An automated model for generating a short-interval schedule

Abstract: Many problems occur on the construction site during the execution of the project. Some of these problems are due to a lack of detailed planning and scheduling. Although Short-Interval Scheduling (SIS) has proven to be a useful technique in managing the day-to-day work at the construction site, this technique is not extensively used. One of the reasons for this is the time consumed in the development of these schedules. This paper discusses the benefits of Short-Interval Schedules. Current manual SIS formats are presented. The paper introduces an automated model that will allow for the generation of Short-Interval Schedules.
