Computer-Aided Modelling, Evaluation and Management of Construction Projects According to PLM Concept
The major problem for investors in construction area is to choose the financially effective construction alternative, most often associated with underestimated actual demand for resources. The lack of information feedback among all participants of the project and the uncertainty treats at the design and construction stages are presented in this paper. Solution is the theoretical 3D building information model, combined with resource demand calculations, comparison of alternatives and determination the duration of all construction project life stages. The software based on this aggregate 4D PLM model can be the mean of effective management of the construction project, embracing planning, design, economic calculations, construction, management, usage and maintenance of the completed building. The paper also describes multiple criteria evaluation software used to identify the most effective construction alternative with presented suggestions of implementation in practice.
