Abstract

Updating of construction schedules involves prompt and accurate capture of facts from a construction site for progress assessment and for learning from the assessment of site related facts to improve scheduling of upcoming activities. This paper discusses a case study being conducted on a highway construction project to understand the need for and the current practice of capturing, transferring and storing site related factual data for assessing the status of a project and of how this information is used in scheduling of upcoming activities. It highlights the challenges and opportunities for improvements observed in data collection and situation assessment processes. The case study findings are used as a basis for a discussion on possible ways of improving the current process by utilizing automated data capture technologies.
