Stroboscope is a programming language for construction process simulation. The programming language provides access to the state of the simulation and to the properties of resources. It allows the creation of realistic models that can make utilization, consumption, and production of resources stochastic; perform dynamic resource allocations; characterize resources created at runtime by combining other resources; and make dynamic decisions regarding the sequence of operations.
