Process-oriented intelligent planning for the delivery of reinforcing bars
Computing in Civil Engineering (New York)
The need to increase productivity, quality, and safety in construction challenges researchers to seek and develop bold innovative changes. This paper provides an insight into some central aspects of automated process planning, a key element of computer-integrated construction (CIC). The work discussed in this paper includes the establishment of a feature-based and process oriented planning framework to allow the integration of computer aided design (CAD) and artificial intelligence (AI) for rebar placement planning. The paper also discusses a prototype system for feature-based and process oriented rebar placement planning. The prototype system is implemented on a PC-486 by integrating AutoCAD, dBASE and LEVEL5 OBJECT software. Finally, implementation of the planning model for the delivery of rebar in a six-story building project and the results of the study are discussed.
