Construction Scheduling, Cost Optimization and Management: A New Model Based on Neurocomputing and Object Technologies

Construction Scheduling, Cost Optimization and Management: A New Model Based on Neurocomputing and Object Technologies Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 modeled. It provides a practical methodology which will be of great benefit to all those involved in construction scheduling and cost optimization.

Book News Annotation:

Develops an object-oriented information model for construction scheduling, cost optimization, and change order management. The authors, who are affiliated with Ohio State University, present a specific implementation of the model in a prototype software system called CONSCOM written in Visual C++ using the foundation class library. They also describe a neural dynamics model for nonlinear design optimization, and a radial-based function neural network for estimating the cost of construction projects. Distributed by Taylor and Francis.
