A concept of an integrated construction planning system involving location-based scheduling technique

Anna Krawczyńska-Piechna


This paper concerns an integrated construction planning method which combines both BIM and location-based management and scheduling techniques. The methodology of 5D planning and LB(M)S is explained using appropriate examples. Location-based scheduling and management is an entirely new production system for construction. It uses locations as the container of project data as well as flow-line scheduling. The author believes it can be a powerful tool for schedule optimization, but still needs investigation regarding the scope of quantity takeoff methods and further improvements of a self-learning labor-demand data base.
