Abstract

Recently, there is no significant difference among Japanese general contractors' building techniques. So, general contractors are becoming to focus on management skills of constructing. As there are various employment types, many works and many relations between works, it is very difficult for general contractors to plan the best process planning of works. Once general contractors created a process planning of works, which they think better, there are no ways to evaluate it except constructing a building in the real world according to the created one. In this research, we made a simulation model with agent-based approach to simulate how interior finish works proceeded in the apartment building construction with a planned process of works by the general contractor. And we show some simulation results and discuss about future possibilities of using our simulation model.
