Agent-based Modeling and Simulation (ABMS) is a relatively new development that has found extensive use in areas such as social sciences, economics, biology, ecology etc. Can ABMS be effectively used in finding answers to complex construction systems? The focus of this paper is to provide some answers to this question. Initial experimentation is conducted to understand the advantages of using ABMS either in isolation or in combination with traditional simulation methodologies. The paper… CONTINUE READING
