GRADUATE COURSES (in the Graduate Program Systems Engineering Management SEM of Democritus University of Thrace DUTH)
COMPUTER AIDED CONSTRUCTION METHODS
Development of a strong understanding of contemporary tools for managing the vast array of information in the project life-cycle. Information handling is reviewed both from the perspective of knowledge acquisition and knowledge representation. The course focuses on the concepts of Fully Integrated and Automated Project Processes (FIAPP), and the interrelationships of 3D computer models, simulation, cost estimating, scheduling, procurement and information technology (emphasis is given on the implementation of 3D computer models and relational databases as information systems for project information handling and project automation).
CONSTRUCTION PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Estimation scheduling, cost control and risk analysis of construction systems. Requirements of plans and specifications, calculation of cost by trade crewing and histogram development. Topics include development of WBS, cost estimate and resource-loaded project schedules, risk analysis, baseline/target schedule comparisons, change order preparation, use of decision-support systems and three-dimensional computer models. The course is based on a real ongoing construction projects.
