THE APPLICATION OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY IN WORK SIMPLIFICATION STUDIES OF CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS -- ABRIDGMENT

THE REPORT DESCRIBES THE USE OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY IN WORK SIMPLIFICATION STUDIES OF CONCRETE BRIDGE DECK CONSTRUCTION. THE INVESTIGATION WAS FUNDED BY THE INDIANA STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION THROUGH THE PURDUE JOINT HIGHWAY RESEARCH PROJECT, AND WAS PERFORMED WITH THE COOPERATION OF SEVERAL BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTORS. ITS FINDINGS INDICATED THAT COMMONLY USED METHODS FOR BRIDGE DECK CONSTRUCTION CONTAINED INEFFICIENCIES THAT WARRANTED FORMAL WORK SIMPLIFICATION STUDIES AND COULD BENEFIT THEREFROM. ANALYSES IN SUPPORT OF THIS CONCLUSION ARE INCLUDED IN THE RESEARCH REPORT. THE INVESTIGATOR RECOMMENDS THAT CONSTRUCTION MANAGERS BE ENCOURAGED TO MAKE USE OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY AS A BASIS FOR WORK SIMPLIFICATION STUDIES OF SELECTED CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS. GENERALIZED WORK SIMPLIFICATION FINDINGS ARE OF QUESTIONABLE VALUE TO CONSTRUCTION MANAGERS BECAUSE OF THE CHANGING NATURE OF THEIR WORK. HOWEVER, SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS OF WORK SIMPLIFICATION TECHNIQUES CAN BE OF SUBSTANTIAL BENEFIT TO EACH CONSTRUCTION ORGANIZATION. THE REPORT INCLUDES, AS AN APPENDIX, A GUIDE MANUAL FOR THE APPLICATION OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY TO WORK METHOD STUDIES OF CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS. /ARTICLE/
