Schedule Computation Method for Two-way Multiple Overlapping Relationships in a BDM Network
Many modern urban development projects are complex high-rise buildings that face unique challenges such as municipal building ordinances and restrictions, adjacent public and residential areas, narrow sidewalks and streets, and underground utilities, all of which necessitate meticulous planning and strict timelines. The development of reasonable schedules that allow them to meet contractual completion deadlines while working with restricted resources and finances is a major problem for such projects. Current construction scheduling software solutions, such as Primavera P6, Microsoft Project, and others, are not used as a scheduling tool in real-world construction projects, which instead rely on Microsoft Excel or a bar-chart. This is because current scheduling systems cannot accommodate a more user-friendly schedule format, such as two-way numerous overlapping relationships. To solve this problem, the BDM (beeline diagramming method) was presented as a new networking strategy in 2010. In a standard schedule computation method, however, The loop is created by two-way numerous overlapping relationships. Construction schedules may be an effective instrument for managing, controlling, and supporting the many operations that go into any construction project. The two-way multiple overlapping relationships loop phenomenon in a BDM network is discussed in this paper, as well as possible solutions and a realistic implementation of two-way multiple overlapping connections in a specific project.
