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

RESEARCH WAS CONDUCTED TO STUDY THE USE OF TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY IN WORK SIMPLIFICATION STUDIES OF CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS. IT WAS HOPED THAT THE USEFULNESS OF THE METHOD COULD BE DEMONSTRATED TO CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT, PRIMARILY THROUGH SUGGESTING IMPROVEMENTS WHICH MIGHT HELP THE INDUSTRY TO BECOME MORE EFFICIENT. WORKING THROUGH THE INDIANA STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION WITH A GROUP OF INDIANA BRIDGE CONSTRUCTORS, THE OPERATION OF BRIDGE DECK CONSTRUCTION WAS STUDIED. THE FINDING INDICATED THAT THIS CONSTRUCTION OPERATION DID CONTAIN INEFFICIENCIES WHICH WARRANTED FORMAL WORK SIMPLIFICATION STUDIES. ANALYSES ARE INCLUDED IN THE RESEARCH REPORT TO SUPPORT THIS CONCLUSION. ALTHOUGH ITS FIELD RESEARCH WAS CONFINED TO THE OBSERVATION OF BRIDGE DECK CONSTRUCTION, THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO SUGGEST THAT THE TIME-LAPSE TECHNIQUE IS LIMITED TO A PARTICULAR FIELD OF CONSTRUCTION. RATHER, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT MANAGERS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO APPLY TIME-LAPSE PHOTOGRAPHY AS A WORK SIMPLIFICATION TOOL TO THEIR PARTICULAR CONSTRUCTION OPERATIONS. /AUTHOR/
