Abstract

A temporal-spatial scheduling model is used to consider the location and movement of equipment, material and temporary structures on a construction site over time, ensuring efficient yet safe processes. The model ties together activity scheduling and dynamic site layout planning, fully integrating two domains that have so far been treated separately. Their integration is facilitated by modeling temporary site objects like cranes as singularity functions. These objects are explicitly linked in the model with work spaces through Boolean operators.
