Construction management activity scheduling using proposed Analytical Node Activity Hierarchy Process (ANAHP)
In this paper, a new project management technique is proposed, by adapting a modern management practice and integrating it with conventional methods. The method proposed is called Analytical Node Activity Hierarchy Process (ANAHP). The process involves node network analysis along with a provision of decision making of available alternative for an activity based on various criteria defined by the manager or the decision maker. Some of these criteria are cost of the construction, time duration of the completion of work and durability of the component. For devising the method, a model problem of an office building construction is taken with data on activities order and available choices associated with individual activity. The problem is solved with conventional method and modern method, the results are compared to validate that adaptation of modern techniques in management can help in improving the efficiency and dimensionality of the project management process. At the end of the paper a scope of the future studies is also mentioned that opens doors to new and more accurate techniques that can also be adopted or modified as per the need for the construction industry.
