Simulation tool for manpower forecast loading and resource leveling
Large scale / mega projects are lengthy complex endeavors that require significant planning by management, engineers and construction personnel to ensure the success of the project. When we examine the state of mega projects today, we are faced with a real crisis. Companies, both client and contractor, are reporting significant cost and schedule overruns. Lack of project scope definition and planning are the primary characteristics of this problem. Computer simulation is a powerful tool for analyzing complex and dynamic scenarios. It provides an appealing approach for the analysis of repetitive processes. Simulation helps decision makers identify different possible options by analyzing enormous amounts of data. Hence, computer simulation can be used effectively to analyze the resource loading and manpower requirements needed to complete a task in a given time frame, based on current progress levels. This paper discusses a specialpurpose simulation (SPS) tool for optimization of manpow...
