Automating Dynamic Layout Construction

  title={Automating Dynamic Layout Construction},
  author={P. P. Zoueina and I. D. Tommeleinb},
A critical problem in dynamic environments and especially on construction sites is coordinating the use of limited space to accommodate resources and their changing demand for space over time. This paper presents a heuristic model that allocates site space to resources associated with an activity schedule so that no spatial conflicts would arise and all resources can be functional. It addresses the dynamic layout planning problem, which involves creating a sequence of layouts that span the…

An automated dynamic site layout planning system - a case study of Egypt
This research developed an automated dynamic site layout planning system (ASLS) which had positive impacts on the construction industry in terms of improving the site layout and space planning, maintaining the construction projects cost and time; improving the overall safety of construction sites; and protecting the surrounding environment.
Real-time Spatial Positioning Network MovePlan : Space Scheduling
Construction field operations are markedly inefficient in terms of where and how materials get stored and handled. This is often due uncertainty at the time of advance planning, the difficulties
Estimating the Size of Temporary Facilities in Construction Site Layout Planning Using Simulation
This paper proposes a framework for estimating size of temporary facilities, a crucial task for construction site layout planning. Underestimation of facility size can lead to facility space
The Critical Factors of Project Management in Sudanese Construction Projects
The Sudanese construction sector is characterized by many small and large projects and high labor intensity, and accounted for 3.2% of the Sudanese country’s GDP. The basic problems facing the


Space Schedule Construction
The layout of temporary facilities on a construction site is affected by changes in a construction schedule, including changes in activity duration, resource selection, and resource allocation
Interactive Dynamic Layout Planning
The MovePlan model enables users to model approximate site space needs during project scheduling and to create layouts for different stages of construction, and can be integrated with off-the-shelf project-management software.
A Model to Quantify Work Space Availability for Space—Contrained Scheduling Within a CAD Environment
A model to generate work space availability of the process work area directly from a CAD model is described using a proposed work area block structure hierarchy and integrates several procedures to quantify and extract the three dimensional space of the work area utilizing computer modeling capabilities and geometric reasoning.
