The purpose of this study is to suggest a improved tact planning and scheduling by reliable Toning of work area in high-rise building construction. To do this, the characteristics of main work including electric & mechanical work were considered through the interview with field work forces. The content of the study is focused mainly on reliable work flow and rhythmical repetition of uniform resource quantity to manage effective tact planning & scheduling. And also the study recommends more implement of tact planning and scheduling to manage human resources successfully in repetitive building construction.

Building construction projects are performed by a number of sub-contractors specialized in diverse trades. Therefore information management among these constituents is quite challenging especially due to exponentially increasing manpower and material resources. In recognition of the importance of information management in project sites a number of systems have been suggested, but the application is limited one of the main reason is that general contractors use these systems and sub-contractor's participation understanding and financial ability are limited. Besides other problems such as loss along communication channel, distortion of information due to inefficient input device and tremendous amount of time and labor are required for collection analysis, and management of information to prepare a daily-report. Therefore the Purpose of this study is to improve reporting process through analyzing current daily reporting system. This paper also suggests the direction of the improved daily reporting system to enhance the performance of construction projects through incorporating sub-contractor's participation in daily reporting system.
Distributed Coordination of Project Schedule Changes: An Agent-Based Compensatory Negotiation Approach

In the construction industry, projects are becoming increasingly large and complex, involving multiple subcontractors. Traditional centralized coordination techniques used by the general contractors become less effective as subcontractors perform most wok and provide their own resources. When subcontractors cannot provide enough resources, they hinder their own performance as well as that of other subconractors and ultimately the entire project Thus, construction projects need a new distributed coordination approach wherein all of the concerned subcontractors can reschedule a project dynamically. To enable the distributed coordination framework of project schedule changes, the author developed an agent-based compensatory negotiation methodology, which allows intelligent software agents to simulate negotiations on behalf of their human subcontractors. In addition to this theoretical work, 1 designed and implemented a prototype to demonstrate the effectiveness of the framework. Thus, this research formalizes the necessary steps that would help construction project participants to increase the efficiency of their resource use, which in turn will enhance successful completions of whole projects.

An enterprise has evolved to meet social changes and customers' requirements. The construction industry has also evolved according to the changes and requirements, therefore it comes to manage the relationships with customers. However, the customer management in the construction industry has not been quite genuine, since it has been mainly oriented for public relations and advertisements of companies. The genuine customer management should not only systemize customer data but also provide strategy to utilize it through managing relationships with customers as well as customers themselves. In order to apply customer relationship management (CRM), which is a more aggressive and structured business strategy, this paper tries to redefine customers in the construction industry; identifies differences from the existing CRM business strategy; and suggests a desired CRM business strategy and it roles in the construction industry.
Constitutional Directions of Decision Support System for Cooperative Design in Architectural Design Phase

In Korea construction project case, architectural construction project is curtailed production because information network process within multidisciplinary isn't smooth. Particularly, the construction is not insufficient about performance, cost and material, construction process, etc. in result various question arises because of design error in construction step. And various mistake is made because communication path within multidisciplinary isn't smooth in architectural design and design change process. Therefore The final object of this study is to propose the establishment method of decision support model for the cooperative design in order to provides improved design coordination and optimize the building system.

Recently, the construction companies are forced to cut down the investment amount due to increasing financial problems caused by severe recession and restructuring in the financial market as well as the long-term depression of the construction industry. To overcome this type of problems, a great many efforts have been made. An alternative may be adopting the advanced financing methods. However, during the course of enforcing process of the financing methods, many problems are revealed without any proper solutions being proposed. Therefore, the fundamental problems need to be solved through comprehensive and systematic approach under the changing environment of construction financing. In this paper, as a result of reviewing some financing methods such as ABS, REITS, and Project Financing, multiple business strategies for construction companies to cope with the changing construction market are found in the sense of effectiveness in implementing construction projects. Further, this paper presents diversified financing methods for the effective practice of construction projects through combination of above mentioned methods, and also proposes improvement plans to strengthen the financing function for the construction industry.
A Development of the Risk Identification Checklist through the Re-establishment of Risk Breakdown Structure of Construction Project

The construction project is largely exposed to much more risk events over the project life cycle due to its complexity and size than the other industries. Therefore, the construction risk management process to identify and response the risk events is not only performing acutely but also proceeding systematically. The risk identification phase in the risk management process is to identify various risk events and define its characteristics. At this phase, the risk identification system is very useful tool to identify every possible risk events in the project. This study shows some problems of the existing risk identification system and proposes the modified risk identification system based on the project phases and the contract bodies, and also suggests partial but more enough detailed risk checklists to be implemented in the actual risk identification phase than any other existing risk breakdown systems to be examined at this study.
