  1. 1. Understanding Applications of Project Planning and Scheduling in Construction Projects

    Author : Hammad Abdullah AlNasseri; Byggproduktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Project planning; project scheduling; front-end planning; construction projects; project stakeholder perspectives; Oman.;

    Abstract : Construction project life-cycle processes must be managed in a more effective and predictable way to meet project stakeholders’ needs. However, there is increasing concern about whether know-how effectively improves understanding of underlying theories of project management processes for construction organizations and their project managers.

  2. 2. Environmentally Friendly Construction Processes Under Uncertainty : Assessment, Optimisation and Robust Decision-Making

    Author : Kailun Feng; Weizhuo Lu; Thomas Olofsson; Geoffrey Qiping Shen; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction processes; environmental impacts; uncertain factors; decision-making; Byggproduktion och teknik; Construction Management and Building Technology;

    Abstract : The construction processes of building and civil infrastructure are broadly recognised as large contributors to the environmental degradation, which cause environmental impacts directly and indirectly by massive energy use, intensive greenhouse emissions, and significant resources consumption. The report from Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) and the Swedish Construction Federation (Byggföretagen) shows that the total carbon dioxide equivalents emitted per year from construction processes are the same size as emissions from all of the cars in Sweden, and more than that is generated by all lorries and busses.

  4. 4. Property-Oriented Information Systems for Design Prototypes for the BAS•CAAD system

    Author : Sverker Fridqvist; Byggproduktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Anläggningsteknik; Construction technology; product modelling; construction; information technology; design; Data- och systemvetenskap; computer technology; Systems engineering;

    Abstract : Property-oriented systems are a new kind of information systems that are based on concepts of properties instead of concepts of things or classes of things. By focusing on properties, the property-oriented systems become more flexible and more suited to the dynamic early stages of design than the traditional class-oriented systems can be. READ MORE
