Optimization of construction schedules with the assumed multi-tasking of working brigades

Michał Krzemiński


The paper presents a newly developed model aimed at minimizing the downtime in working brigades work. The developed method is dedicated to the construction planned using the stream method of work
organization. The model focuses on the assumption of multi-tasking of working brigades. It has been possible to model the performance depending on the type of brigade and the type of work being performed. The article also shows an example illustrating the results of the model’s operation.
