Work Breakdown Structure Scheduling for Repetitive Construction Projects with Soft Logics

Lekshmi A L | Dr. T R Sethu Raman | Sreeja V [2]

Abstract: Construction site condition often deals with situation that the preplanned work pattern has to be changed. But due to the lack of knowledge about the after effect of that change the work team hesitates to do so. This paper presents a work breakdown structure for scheduling repetitive construction projects with soft logics. Soft logics relations are non-fixed work sequence which can be reordered for getting changes in cost, duration and resources usage. With the help of soft logic consideration in work breakdown structure of repetitive construction projects the site working team can find the after effect of change in work pattern through various sequence of the proposed work. Primavera P6 software makes it easier to apply that change and also to track the overall progress of the work. Final result clearly shows that planning the work in different pattern, before execution, will help the project manager to select an optimum sequence of work breakdown structure.
