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.
