Re-engineering of the project planning process

Abstract: This paper describes the current status of the projectplanning process in the Swedish construction company Skanska Syd AB.The purpose of the study is to identify and analyse important aspectsof potential improvements of project planning.The study shows that re-engineering of the project planning processinvolves five improvement areas of concern;distinct demands, adequate education and support, quality assuranceof the planning process, integrated project management systems,and experiential feed-back.

Design studio of the future

Abstract: New communication media enable new design technologies. To investigate the mutual influenceof a new medium like Virtual Reality (VR) and architectural design technologies, a laboratorycalled 'the design studio of the future' is established. In due time a design system will bedeveloped offering different design technologies in an integrated environment. Interfaces withinVR will support various approaches to the design problem. A large research program (VirtualReality - Distributed Interactive Systems) is carried out to provide state-of-the-art tools fordesigners to experiment and to give feed back on the results.

Cost estimation of high performance concrete (hpc) high-rise commercial buildings by neural networks

Abstract: Neural network approach is applied to establish relationships between the quantities/cost of the concrete/formwork, which is required for the structural elements of tall buildings using high performance concrete (HPC), and the design variables. Hybrid and hierarchical strategies are proposed for the cost estimation, where the feed-forward networks are adopted. After training, the neural networks are utilized to predict automatically the quantities/cost of HPC wall-frame structures in tall commercial buildings. Verifications are conducted with respect to various sets of the design parameters and a comprehensive discussion is given.
