Abstract

4D Planning and Scheduling of the Construction Project Using Project Management Software and GIS

In contrast with the past, presently construction industry concerned about optimal execution of project. For this to achieve, the construction industry needs a systematic planning, scheduling and management process which in turn permit the overall optimization of cost, time and resources. Usage of conventional project management software tools for explaining the status of the vast projects to the various parties involving in the construction is not up to the mark. Direct usage of schedule sheets prepared from conventional tools with drawings is difficult to follow the schedule activities. Instead, drawings along with the schedule progress can be integrated on a geospatial platform to create a 4D view of the project progress. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as a spatial platform can be linked with drawings along with its corresponding project management software derived schedule in order to successfully execute the construction of a project.
