FREE ABSTRACT (to read the full article, please log in below).
Timely resource allocation, which is a dynamic decision-making process
dependent on real-time information during construction, is crucial to obtaining
high construction productivity or saving costs, especially when the resources
are limited. In the consideration of operational and stochastic characteristics
of construction operations and the fuzziness of decision objectives for
an appropriate allocation policy (due to imprecision or subjectivity of
decision criteria), a fuzzy dynamical resource allocation (FDRA) based
on the fuzzy decision-making approach is developed. In order to model the
dynamic resource allocation decisions, the FDRA is built into a discrete-event
simulation system through activity scanning strategy. Accordingly, the
discrete-event simulation is improved with the decision-making ability.
