Advanced construction technologies have been rarely applied to practical construction operations on jobsites due to a lack of quantified evaluation data of the performance of such technologies. The basic objective of this study is to suggest a feasible way for the evaluation of the performance of new technologies based on construction simulation techniques, which have been frequently used in academic research for productivity estimation. Steel staircase systems were selected as the new

The simulation results provided in this study suggest that planners are able to make a fundamental decision on the use of targeted new technology with the estimated performance data (productivity and unit costs). These findings also indicate that a simulation technique could be one of the methods appropriate for use as a planner's decision-making tool.
