||Metagame analysis for determining construction methods
||Kaneta T, Furusaka S
||This paper deals with the use of metagame analysis to help resolveconflicting factors affecting the choice of a reinforced concrete structuralsystem. The most suitable construction method in a project varies inaccordance with several factors, but may be limited to: overall constructioncost, construction duration, quality of construction and effect ofenvironmental issues. A computer program was developed as a tool toanalyse the decision making process using an Analytical Hierarchy Processand is used to decipher different preferences based on prioritised objectives.The specific focus in this paper is resolving to choose pre-cast concrete incomparison to cast-in-place technology in a project operated by a firmincluding an owner, an architect and a construction manager. The resultsderived from the metagame analysis shows that the priority afforded to thevarious factors affecting a particular choice of building system is dependentupon the preference given to these factors and this necessarily will have aneffect the manner in which the conflicting objectives are resolved.
