AbstractThe Construction Planning and Manageability Prediction (CM) System builds a master plan and schedule that explicitly represent planned construction methods and resource utilization. The system simulates the schedule and identifies potential resource bottlenecks and material handling difficulties. An automated diagnosis procedure analyzes the simulation results to identify potential risk factors in the plan and schedule and to help a project manager to assess project manageability. This paper also discusses the results of simulating some aspects of a real construction project. Low management influence in a given time span appears to cause later low manageability. Furthermore, simulation results show that the number of problems increases after periods of low management influence and decreases after periods of high management influence.
