||This study addresses a two-step approach to model-based scheduling using the Advanced Line of Balance (ALoB) technique. In the first step, a master schedule is developed by using a product model, a resource and cost model, and public databases such as Ratu files. In the second step, this model-based master schedule is refined by a project manager who injects additional project specific information into it. The objective of this paper is a methodology that can be used to set up a model-based master schedule of a residential building project and then to refine this master schedule to satisfy the conditions in a particular project. The paper introduces building construction information modeling, advanced line of balance before describing the process and structure of model-based master schedule. After a discussion about extending a master schedule into a usable schedule, the findings of a case study are presented. It is concluded that a two-step methodology to create an extended master schedule is feasible.
