Abstract

Researchers in construction management has broadly studied traditional scheduling techniques (e.g., graphical and network scheduling techniques) introduced in the 1900s to 1950s to address the shortcomings of these techniques. Existing studies extensively applied mathematical complex and time-consuming methods to optimize scheduling techniques. However, still, real-world projects have been experiencing significant time delay in completion, and there is a gap in the literature and the construction industry in adopting complicated mathematical methods. Thus, this study developed a more practical integrated scheduling approach to bridge the gap by addressing the prevailing scheduling approaches' inadequacy. This approach can link activities to the task location and maintain the logic and interdependency between activities. Consequently, the integrated scheduling approach will improve the scheduling technique to minimize project time overrun. Moreover, it also makes it possible to combine new technologies and methods such as building information modeling (BIM) with this integrated approach to auto-generate a project schedule. This research will increase productivity, minimizes time spent on scheduling, and enables timely schedule updates, optimization, and decision making.
