  4. 4. A process model for work-flow management in construction

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Rogier Jongeling; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggproduktion; Construction Engineering and Management;

    Abstract : This thesis describes a novel approach for management of work-flow in construction, based on the combination of location-based scheduling and modelling with 4D CAD. Construction planners need to carefully design a process that ensures a continuous and reliable flow of resources through different locations in a project. READ MORE

  5. 5. On-site production synchronisation improving the resource-flow in construction projects

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Håkan Norberg; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a process model to support the synchronisation of work flow and resource flows in construction projects. The process model is based on a combination of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and construction management methods. Work-flow is defined as the flow of work on-site, i.e. READ MORE
