An industrial construction enterprise operating in the City of Edmonton wants to improve its bidding strategies that are currently plagued with uncertainty, lack of information and historical price variability. The present research studies a compilation of documents obtained from company archives...
The allocation of resources over time, referred to as resource scheduling, in large-scale construction environments is a challenging problem. Although traditional network scheduling techniques are the most popular scheduling techniques in the construction industry, they are ineffective in...
Enhancing space modeling and mobile resources planning in construction operations through a simulation driven visualization frameworkDownload
Simulation modeling is a strong tool that has not been utilized to its expected potential in day to day construction industry activities. One of the reasons contributing to that is the inability of simulation models to depict changes in site space in an intuitive way. This research tries to...
Oil and gas are known for their huge-size and complex projects that consist of multiple trades’ subprojects such as concrete, steel, and piping. These subprojects are executed within a confined area during a limited time frame. This requires careful planning and coordination between these...
Oil and gas projects are known for their size and complexity and incorporate multiple disciplines such as concrete, steel, and piping. Each discipline is executed within a confined area during a limited timeframe. The execution of each discipline requires careful planning and coordination between...
Industrial fabrication for modular installations has its own set of challenges that combine the environments of industrial manufacturing and off-site construction. This hybrid execution strategy means that fabricators need to look at both fields and adopt the best tools and techniques. This...
Equipment cost represents a large expenditure for construction companies. Making economic decisions such as when to replace or rebuild is a complicated and difficult task that often relies on the experience of an equipment manager. This research analyzed the historical maintenance cost of heavy...
There are many road construction companies in Canada that possess numerous fleets of heavy equipment. A big portion of the operating cost of these fleets is consumed by maintenance operations. This thesis focused on the cost of maintenance operation for a road construction company. The objective...
This thesis focuses on conducting productivity analysis for sewer mainline CCTV inspection through two phases: 1) developing the standard time for CCTV inspection and analyzing the effect of the weather condition and ambient temperature on its productivity, and 2) reviewing the CCTV process...
The Development of Random Generators of Weather and Industrial Pipelines Data using Parametric and Non-Parametric ApproachesDownload
Construction projects are unique and complex in nature. They are associated with many challenges regarding the randomness, complexity, and interdependency related to the operation/process, the environment hosting the operation, and the product being constructed. These challenges are also common...
