Abstract
The need for specialized software, particularly for repetitive construction is growing. Although simulation has been accepted in the research world, the industry has been slow to follow. The goal of this research is the development of a special purpose template for linear scheduling that is simple to use and requires little to know knowledge of simulation. In order to develop this template, a thorough review of the development of the linear scheduling method and existing linear scheduling software is conducted. The major disadvantage of almost all of the existing programs is their inability to incorporate uncertainty. The special purpose template developed not only incorporates uncertainty but also models time and space dependency, material deliveries, milestones, continuous and discrete activities and varying production rates. The template is verified using a fictional case study and the applications of the template are shown through both a fictional and real world case study.
