Abstract

The impact of changes in construction projects often becomes clear only after their implementation, when it is difficult to make adjustments or consider alternatives. A model which identifies the impact of proposed changes on the primary client objectives of cost, schedule and performance is currently under development. The model utilizes available sources of project information in order to identify the impact of changes prior to their implementation in the project. The model should be integrative, adaptive and stochastic. The basic aspects of the model are, accordingly, that it links the primary client objectives; that it is defined using a graph-based approach; and, that it represents project information as a stochastic network. Different change scenarios can be investigated using the model, and their consequences are quickly identified by tracing the relationships between the elements of the project. Copyright ASCE 2009.
