Planning plays an important role in precast production management. In practice, however, this work is primarily carried out on a rule-of-thumb basis. A specialized planning model based on simulation technique and genetic algorithm (GA) is presented in this paper for make-to-order precast production. A novel priority rule, the critical precast component (CP)(More)
Planning plays an important role in precast production management. In practice, however, this work is primarily carried out on a rule-of-thumb basis. A specialized planning model based on simulation technique and genetic algorithm (GA) is presented in this paper for precast production with two critical resources. A novel priority rule, the critical precast(More)
Use of simulation technique is becoming more popular in managing design process. However, developing a simulation model can be very tedious and knowledge demanding, and a simulation model developed for one project cannot readily be used for others due to the unique nature of design project. This paper develops a generalized simulation model for the design(More)
