This paper presents the implementation of an Industry Foundation Class-based (IFC-based) information server for web-enabled collaborative building design between the architect and structural engineer. In this research, the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) standard is employed to build the framework of a design information server; the web and XML(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 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)
