title Decision support system for air base construction operations
source The Int. Journal of Construction IT 1(2), pp. 69-82
summary The United States Air Force has recently introduced a CAD software performing air base planning and operability functions. This paper presents a prototype system developed to support that software in enhancing decision-making processes for construction operations, by integrating its CAD/graphics capabilities with a database management system (DBMS). The system addresses the complexity and unique nature of the air base environment and takes due account of the importance of the efficient utilization of resources. It assists in the generation of alternative solutions and furnishes comparative and indicative evaluations of these, thus providing the decision maker with proper guidance towards the expeditious selection of good solution. System fundamentals and the rationale behind them are described. A typical scenario is presented, illustrating the concepts developed and demonstrating the potential benefits of the system as a practical decision-support tool. Although originally aimed for an air base environment, the proposed solution could also readily apply to civilian systems of similar characteristics.
