title An Automated Value-based Evaluation and Conditional Approval of Construction Submittals
source Digital Crafting [7th International Conference Proceedings of the Arab Society for Computer Aided Architectural Design (ASCAAD 2014 / ISBN 978-603-90142-5-6], Jeddah (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), 31 March - 3 April 2014, pp. 161-174
summary To ensure compliance with specifications during construction, a formal review process, called the submittals process, is typically used whereby a contractor submits proposals for materials, equipment, and processes for owner’s approval. This evaluation process can be a difficult task because of time restriction, lack of information in the submittal package, and lack of defined criteria for evaluation. This study thus introduces an automated decision support for submittal evaluation that uses the Multi-Attribute Utility Theory (MAUT) to evaluate a submittal considering its impact on the construction and operation of the building. First, key building submittals are analyzed and the top one (chiller) is selected and its evaluation parameters grouped into two categories: non-flexible and flexible. The non-flexible parameters have been dealt with as a checklist with predefined thresholds that must be met without tolerance. Flexible parameters, on the other hand, have been analyzed using utility values that represent decision makers’ preferences and tolerance levels. Accordingly, the evaluation process determines the overall utility for the submittal and the value-based condition for accepting it. An automated prototype system has been developed using data provided by three organizations through intensive interviews with experts. A case study was then used to prove that the proposed evaluation system provides consistent and objective decisions, internal alignment of organizational values, and improved lifecycle performance of submittal items.
