Design optimization is an effective strategy to reduce construction project costs. This study focuses on the benefit of design optimization, which should be allocated to the designer. Furthermore, the distribution ratio can be determined through negotiation. In line with this view, this paper initially analyzed the benefits of engineering design optimization and the basic mechanism of its distribution. Second, we established the negotiation model of design optimization profit distribution by… 
Profit Sharing Mechanism of Large EPC Project considering the Behavior of Fairness Concern
A large-scale engineering procurement and construction (EPC) project is often conducted by a joint venture. Many factors affect the success of cooperation among participating enterprises, such as
The Effect of Fairness Concern on Carbon Emission Reduction and Revenue Distribution in Construction Supply Chain: Power Structure Perspective
This paper invested a two-echelon construction supply chain that consists of a general contractor and a subcontractor. This paper constructs the centralized model and the decentralized models,
Carbon emission reduction and profit distribution mechanism of construction supply chain with fairness concern and cap-and-trade
It is shown that the fairness concern can impose an adverse influence on firms’ profits and decrease the magnitude of their carbon emission reductions.
Optimization Design of Civil Engineering Construction Schedule Based on Genetic Algorithm
Research shows that genetic algorithm is beneficial to optimize the progress of civil engineering construction, and has a positive effect on reducing construction costs and improving project quality.
How Contractor Behavior Affects Engineering Project Value-Added Performance
Contractors are one of the most important project participants, and their behavior has gained increasing attention for improving performance, but few studies have been devoted to focusing on the
Sustainable Infrastructure Assessment Model: An Application to Road Projects
The proposed model can assist stakeholders by reducing the time and effort required for assessing the sustainability of road projects by reflecting reality more accurately than other available sustainable infrastructure assessment models.


Incentive Contract Study on the Design Optimization and Innovation of Green Buildings: A Perspective of Value Chain
The study reveals that architecture developers determine the income sharing coefficient not only by the design enterprises' level of effort, but the achievements in "benchmark green buildings", which results in the optimum cost sharing coefficient t * being obtained.
An analysis of feasible solutions for multi-issue negotiation involving nonlinear utility functions
This paper analyzes bilateral multi-issue negotiation between self-interested agents. Specifically, we consider the case where issues are divisible, there are time constraints in the form of
Attitude-Based Negotiation Methodology for the Management of Construction Disputes
The proposed methodology may assist negotiators with the challenges of conventional negotiation through the incorporation of decision makers’ attitudes into a range of analytical tools that will clarify interests, determine equities and identify the most feasible decisions.
Application of Equity Sensitivity Theory to Problem-Solving Approaches in Construction Dispute Negotiation
This study applies equity sensitivity theory to investigate how the sensitivity of negotiators to perceived equity or inequity varies with their perception of the adoption of problem-solving
Wholesale pricing under mild and privately known concerns for fairness
This article studies the performance of wholesale pricing when the supply chain partners' fairness concerns are private information. We find that some properties of wholesale pricing established
