Decision support system for construction-led design

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper describes a computer based decision support tool, which facilitates a construction-led approach to steel design, by integrating the information flow from each of the existing processes. The decision support tool enables a designer to assess the effects of conceptual decisions on fabrication, transportation and erection costs, and assess the constructability of designs, providing advice on feasible and economical alternatives.
