Abstract:   (1344 Views)
Resource planning in large-scale construction projects has been a complicated management issue requiring mechanisms to facilitate decision making for managers. In the present study, a computer-aided simulation model is developed based on concurrent control of resources and revenue/expenditure. The proposed method responds to the demand of resource management and scheduling in shell material embankment activities regarding large-scale dam projects of Iran. The model develops a methodology for concurrent management of resources and revenue/expenditure estimation of dam's projects. This real-time control allows managers to simulate several scenarios and adopt the capability of complicated working policies. Results validation shows that the proposed model will assist project managers as a decision support tool in cost-efficient executive policymaking on resource configuration.
