Abstract

Many existing studies about construction schedule management focus on the planning phase of a project, particularly on schedule estimation based on the labor resources involved in the project. However, equipment resources, which are another crucial factor in the productivity of a construction project, have not been considered in existing research. Therefore, this study aimed to develop a schedule estimation model considering both labor and equipment resources. For the purpose of this study, core wall construction was selected because it is a very important construction activity in terms of schedule estimation for high-rise building construction. To develop a schedule estimation model for core wall construction, an in-depth case study was conducted. On the basis of the results of the case study, a simulation model was developed using the CYCLONE method. Finally, by using the results of the simulation, a schedule estimation model for core wall construction was developed by conducting multiple-regression analysis. By using the developed model, a project manager can easily, quickly, and accurately perform schedule estimation when there are problems that may cause construction schedule delays during the construction phase.
