||Product modelling to structure a aase library to case-based construction planning
||Tommelein I D, Dzeng R J
||The conceptual design of a case-based planner, named Caseplan, ispresented to plan and schedule construction activities by comparing a newfacility with those described in cases, and adapting the selected cases 'plans to suit the new construction needs. For effective case retrieval andnew case indexing, CasePlan relies on a product model, that describes aprototypical power plant facility. Each construction product in a project isa specialization of this product model. A library of construction techniquesand methods is also related to this product model. This well-structuredorganization of detail enables CasePlan to construct executable projectplans. This is in contrast to most other artificial-intelligence based plannersthat generate only least-commitment plans, which must be detailed furthermanually. CasePIan thus exploits the power provided by a well-structuredmodel to capture human expertise in design and construction planningcases, and demonstrates how such a product model can effectively be used.A operational prototype of CasePlan is currently being developed.
