Abstract: In cases of large-scaled structures it is very important to keep the criteria of construction accuracy and therefore to correct construction errors if any considerable errors are found during erection. Here the authors present a new methodology useful for control of construction accuracy in place of the conventional methods. It is based on identification of error factors which are the origins of construction errors arising during erection. In this paper the theoretical development of the method is mentioned and some practical investigations related with the case of cable-stayed bridges are discussed.
