A dynamic method for modeling construction processes is presented and illustrated in the context of the construction of the Peachtree Center Plaza Hotel, Atlanta, Ga. The method develops the concept of flow units which pass through network representations of the system being modeled. The networks consist of elements corresponding to activities or functions inherent in the concrete forming and placement process. These network models provide a medium for documenting and communicating information regarding construction processes. A computer simulation solution of the network using discrete simulation techniques is also presented. /Author/
