Life Cycle Costing (LCC) techniques are being used across a wide range of projects across different industries and have attracted considerable attention. However, LCC techniques are not widely used within the construction industry because of problems associated with LCC related processes such as data capture, reliability and certainty. Recent technological(More)

The necessity of applying fuzzy set theory to life cycle costing (LCC) is highlighted. A computer algorithm for LCC-based decision-making is outlined. This algorithm is based on the fuzzy set theory (FST) and interval analysis. The algorithm is designed around an explicit analytical LCC model. The model was introduced in a form that allows the handling of(More)

Industry-wide there has been recognition of the need for the incorporation of performance measurement in aiding core businesses. However, there has been a dearth of material on performance assessment to aid property management practices and a seeming lack of structured processes for carrying out the performance measurement of properties. So, it has(More)
The growing rate of delays in project delivery is considered a major criticism of the construction companies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This paper aims to investigate the causes and effects behind the delays pertaining to delivery of construction projects in the UAE. The study is exploratory in nature, and incorporates a pilot questionnaire survey(More)
Genetic algorithms and their hybrid schemes have shown a great efficacy in solving large scale combinatorial problems in which solutions are highly time-consuming. The level of repair analysis (LORA), mathematically formulised by an integer programming model (IP), is very difficult to optimize by means of traditional optimization techniques due to a large(More)
