Abstract

Although slightly improving the control of the design schedule may greatly reduce the total duration of the project, but little effort has been made to control the schedule of the design project. Scheduling design activities is complicated chiefly because the design activities often have different degrees of information dependencies between each other. That is, design process involves a number of iterations. This work develops a simulation-based model to incorporate uncertain design iterations for generating the schedule of multiple design projects for a design firm. The proposed model is implemented and demonstrated by a case study.
