Repetitive Project Scheduling Theory and Methods

Repetitive Project Scheduling: Theory and Methods is the first book to comprehensively, and systematically, review new methods for scheduling repetitive projects that have been developed in response to the weaknesses of the most popular method for project scheduling, the Critical Path Method (CPM). As projects with significant levels of repetitive scheduling are common in construction and engineering, especially construction of buildings with multiple stories, highways, tunnels, pipelines, power distribution networks, and so on, the book fills a much needed gap, introducing the main repetitive project scheduling methods, both comprehensively and systematically. Users will find valuable information on core methodologies, including how to identify the controlling path and controlling segment, how to convert RSM to a network model, and examples based on practical scheduling problems. Introduces the repetitive scheduling method with analysis of the pros and cons, as well as the latest developments Discusses the two basic theoretical topics, identifying the controlling path and transferring the RSM to a network model Focuses on practical problems and algorithms Provides an essential resource for researchers, managers, and engineers in the field of engineering project and construction management

Construction Scheduling, Cost Optimization and Management presents a general mathematical formula for the scheduling of construction projects. Using this formula, repetitive and non-repetitive tasks, work continuity considerations, multiple-crew strategies, and the effects of varying job conditions on the performance of a crew can be modelled.L This book presents an entirely new approach to the construction scheduling problem. It provides a practical methodology which will be of great benefit to all those involved in construction scheduling and cost optimization, including

The topic of this book is known as dynamic scheduling, and is used to refer to three dimensions of project management and scheduling: the construction of a baseline schedule and the analysis of a project schedule’s risk as preparation of the project control phase during project progress. This dynamic scheduling point of view implicitly assumes that the usability of a project’s baseline schedule is rather limited and only acts as a point of reference in the project life

With extensive case studies for illustration, this is a practitioner's guide to an entirely new production system for construction management using flowline scheduling. Covering the entire process of presenting a comprehensive management system – from design, through measurement, scheduling, and visualization and control – its emphasis is on reducing cost and increasing quality. Drawing its components together into a management system, the authors not only include theory and explanations of how and why it works, but also examine and present a suite

A general mathematical formulation has been developed for scheduling of construction projects and applied to the problem of highway construction scheduling. Repetitive and non-repetitive tasks, work continuity considerations, multiple-crew strategies, and the effects of varying job conditions on the performance of a crew can be modeled. An optimization formulation is presented for the construction project scheduling problem with the goal of minimizing the direct construction cost. The nonlinear optimization problem is then solved by the recently patented neural dynamics model

Repetitiveness in project's activities has gained an important role in the construction industry. Multiple linear scheduling methods have been proposed in order to fully take advantage of the spatial and temporal information these type of project can provide to practitioners. Rate of executions, activity fragmentation, multiple execution crews working simultaneously and relationships between activities in the sub-activity level, are some of the key schedule characteristics that are now tangible and perceptible. Besides the advances in the optimization models in these
