by David Y. Chang, Texas A&M Univ, College Station, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Preparing for Construction in the 21st Century


This paper presents an object-oriented simulation system designed to integrate specific construction knowledge into construction process planning. Using the object-oriented representation, this integrated system enhances as well as simplifies the simulation approach to planning construction processes. This paper reviews the modeling concepts of the system, demonstrates one modeling example, and discusses future system extensions.
