Logical product models for automated scripting of process-level construction animations
Animation can add significant value to Discrete-Event Simulation by helping verify, validate, and accredit simulation analyses. This is particularly true in construction where typical decision makers are experts in their domain but are not generally proficient in simulation itself. Existing methods of animating simulated construction processes in 3D have a significant limitation. They require that spatial information about construction workspaces and geometric details of facility components being erected be both captured into simulation models, even though such information is otherwise irrelevant from the process modeling perspective. This cumbersome, time-consuming, and often impossible activity precludes the widespread use of animation in simulation analyses. This research addressed this limitation and studied the applicability of the CIMsteel Integration Standards (CIS/2) in supporting the automated scripting of process-level construction animations. Member geometry, position, and ...
