Abstract

Progress management is demanding because of the volume of information exchanged among the various parties involved in a project. In particular, steel structures for high-rise construction projects are among the major work items that require more intensive progress management. This research aims at developing a real-time progress management system through an automated module for scheduling estimates and using an RFID system for real-time construction progress. We propose a new technique that preconstruction engineers can use to build a schedule estimation using 3D-CAD and a Database. By using these tools, engineers can visualize then analyze real-time, actual construction progress with on-site RFID and robot systems. The real-time progress management system developed in this study maintains the continuity of the information from 3D design, the accuracy of lists of materials, the automation of expected progress, and the management of actual progress.
