Scheduling knowledge base for high-rise residential construction Tse, Henry Lai Han
The objective of this thesis is to assemble the knowledge base which reflects the expertise of the building contractor as it relates to activity scoping and sequencing work for highrise residential construction projects. To facilitate the acquisition of practical construction scheduling knowledge, computerized project management capabilities were implemented into a medium size general building contractor, J.C. Scott Construction Ltd. of Vancouver. This company was used to represent the industry standards from which the knowledge is extracted. The process by which the computerized system was implemented and used in the field to acquire the knowledge is documented so that an understanding is gained regarding the nature of the acquired data. The knowledge acquired from the study is represented in the form of rule-based data and stored in databases structured for use in a knowledge-based expert system.
