Workspace Generation and Interference Optimization Algorithm by Work-type using 3D Model Object in a Construction Project
Journal of the Korean Society of Civil Engineers
The increase of input resources, such as labor and equipment, in a construction project causes workspace interference between activities and it influences on the productivity and quality of construction activities. To solve this problem, many studies related to the workspace interference have been performed, however they verified the workspace concerning with only the geometric location of activities or generated the shape of workspace by a whole object concept not separated units of detailed
... units of detailed operations. It is difficult for project manager to reasonably analyze the workspace conflict, because the size of workspace cannot reflect the characteristics of an activity and input time of a resource. This paper presents a methodology that can generate three-dimensional models in order to optimize the workspace shape and size by considering with the characteristics of each activity and input time of each resource. The suggested method can be used for the active BIM system that optimizes the workspace conflict without additional construction duration and for the searching algorithm of optimized moving path for construction equipment.
