It is well known that network technique, e. g. PERT/CPM, has not been utilized in construction site offices for planning and scheduling. We have tried to renew PERT/CPM, and we have developed a personal computer-based management system called PF-NETS, Planning Forecasting-NETwork System. In this paper, we present our recent results of study. The purposes of this research project are: (a) to demonstrate the viability of applying this system, (b) to find out problems, and (c) to show the way to explore them by A. I. techniques. In this process we discovered a new concept which indicates a discrepancy between hierarchical networks. We named the higher level network 'Conceptional Network'.
