Poor staircase architectural design could contribute to increasing the risk of falling for older adults. This research provides an integrated evidence-based assessment of staircase architectural design to support independent living for older adults (65 years and older). The staircase assessment...
Customized Manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning System for Offsite Modular Light Gauge Steel ConstructionDownload
The research presented in this thesis describes the implementation of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that works in parallel to an offsite modular construction production line. The framework, which integrates lean manufacturing construction and time study, is used to diagnose...
Modular construction manufacturing (MCM) is superior to the current on-site construction system which is hampered by inefficiency and material and process waste. Modular buildings are potentially built through a more efficient and cost-effective method, but in the current manufacturing-based...
Automation of the code compliance checking process has been explored extensively, particularly in recent years with the emergence of building information modelling. Still, automated code compliance checking has not yet been fully realized, as there is no standardized method for rule...
Improving the Efficiency, Productivity, and Cost-Effectiveness of Modular Design and Construction ProcessesDownload
This thesis provides a methodology to incorporate building information modeling (BIM), lean construction, and simulation modelling into a cohesive package in the context of modular manufacturing. BIM was used to construct a three dimensional model from which the wall and object properties were...
This thesis describes a methodology for process improvement of panelized home building production lines through increasing productivity and reducing production cycle time based on lean production and simulation tools. In panelized home building, panels are produced in a factory and then moved to...
Classroom Occupancy-based Human Resource Optimization using Sensor- and WiFi-based Location TrackingDownload
This thesis presents a framework for dynamic allocation of human resources in operations and maintenance based on occupancy of university classrooms using sensor- and WiFi-based location tracking. It includes case studies where 125 classrooms at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, are...
Construction project costs are exchanged in the form of large numbers of purchase orders, which translates into many thousands of invoices. In typical contractual relationships, these invoices are exchanged between all parties involved in a construction project, including owners, engineers,...
The occupational indoor air quality (IAQ) during construction plays a major role in workers' health and safety as construction activities frequently generate airborne pollutants. Exposure to dusts, fumes, fibres and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can cause health issues such as lung cancer,...
Construction sites are the place where personnel and equipment work closely. In such workplaces, human movement dynamically adapts to the surrounding circumstances which are congested and continually changing. Acquisition of worker trajectories and measurement of physical value of workplaces,...
