Engineering work can account for 10% to 20% of capital project costs, and up to 50% of a project’s schedule. The construction industry rigorously implements control techniques to minimize cost and schedule overruns; however, the same cannot be said for controlling engineering work. Over the...
This research focuses on the accounts payable function in construction firms. The cash conversion cycle includes accounts payable and accounts receivable support functions. Research objectives focus on mapping the existing accounts payable processes in construction, building a model to represent...
Properly planning module installation on industrial sites is a critical factor in ensuring that projects are delivered safely, on time, and within budget. In industrial modular construction, pre-fabricated modules are installed on site, in specific patterns, based on design documents. Depending...
Implementation of Bayesian Updating and Markov Chains to Improve Simulation of Stochastic Processes in ConstructionDownload
This thesis was mainly concerned with improving model-based prediction and forecasting of state variables of processes or systems using new, periodically-generated data within the construction domain. Some of these data are generated from field tests performed during feasibility studies, while...
A plethora of information combined with the participation of diverse disciplines during the tunneling life cycle results in fragmented information components. To address this problem, integrated information systems provide a unique environment to store project information. In this regard,...
Construction projects are often faced with complex challenges; all of which lead to difficult decisions and possibly disputes regarding liability of the parties. This research investigates the risks associated with tunnelling construction and uses the information to create a simplified risk...
This thesis focuses on determining innovative computer vision algorithms suitable for progress tracking and forming them into automated visual progress tracking framework. The main concept of this approach is reconstruction of an as-built 3D point cloud model of the object of interest based on...
A Distributed Simulation Approach for Contractor Company Performance Management in the Construction IndustryDownload
Acquiring and sustaining an edge over competitors in an era that is characterized by more complex and massive projects, scarce resources, more stringent client requirements, and higher expectations from board members is quite challenging for construction companies. It is believed that...
Computer-based quality management systems have been widely implemented throughout the construction industry as per the requirement of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9000. Although these systems have facilitated the collection of vast amounts of quality management data,...
A Conceptual Cost Comparison Study between Alberta and Overseas Module Assembly Strategies for Industrial Construction ProjectsDownload
In recent years, the lower cost of construction resources in overseas countries (e.g. China and Korea) and advancements in transportation have increased the interest in offshore fabrication and assembly of industrial modules as an alternative to local assembly in Alberta, Canada. Many research...
