CONSTRUCTION PLANNING FOR LINEAR PROJECTS

A method is proposed for planning the construction process for a linear project consisting of a series of "production lines," each of which comprises a series of sequential activities (e.g., pipelines, roads, bridges, etc.). The method is based on an input including labor requirement for each activity and the feasible crew sizes for each production line. Dynamic programming is used for determination of the quantity of resources (therefore also activity durations) per line and the start of each activity, with a view to work continuity within the line and to minimum overall project duration.
