||This paper presents the ISSP system for activity scheduling and site layout planningunder spatial constraints. The importance of tying schedule and layout data has beenestablished and dealt with extensively in the literature. Many decision-support toolswere developed to assist planners in space scheduling but these were limited to providingthe user with a platform that ties spatial and temporal data in the project and left it up tothe user to decide on positions of resources and schedule adjustments to solve spatialconflicts that may arise in the process of constructing site layouts over time. The ISSPsystem, presented here, provides a graphical user-interactive interface with underlyinglayout and scheduling algorithms that construct feasible layout and schedule solutionsunder 2-dimensional spatial constraints between resources. The underlying algorithmsoptimize positions of resources by minimizing handling and rehandling costs of these onsite. ISSP can also be integrated with existing scheduling and layout planning decisionsupporttools to enable users to override the system's decisions to reach "usersatisfycing"solutions.
