Location-Based Management for Construction
Planning, scheduling and control
Published July 22nd 2009 by Routledge – 554 pages
With extensive case studies for illustration, this is a practitioner's guide to an entirely new production system for construction management using flowline scheduling.
Covering the entire process of presenting a comprehensive management system – from design, through measurement, scheduling, and visualization and control – its emphasis is on reducing cost and increasing quality.
Drawing its components together into a management system, the authors not only include theory and explanations of how and why it works, but also examine and present a suite of methods for successful project implementation.
Perfect as a how-to guide for researchers and advanced construction students to discover the simple application of the new techniques, and invaluable for acquiring the practical tools for planning and controlling projects.
"Location Based Management for Construction: Planning, Schedulling and Control by Kenley and Seppännen is the new 'Bible' for learning about Location Based Techniques."
"This book is ideally suited for advanced scheduling courses and Masters level programmes where 'beyond the basics' can be covered."
