Abstract
The construction industry both in Sweden and abroad suffers from low productivity
and quality related issues. This work investigates how discrete-event simulation can
be used in planning of construction related productions systems. The purpose of this
work is to develop a model which simulates on-site construction activities in terms of
time, cost and resource usage. A model was developed which simulates on-site
construction activities considering uncertainty factors such as prevailing weather
conditions. The model was tested in a real project with promising results. Five
different scenarios were simulated to demonstrate the possibilities of the model.
