In a high-rise building project that involves many repetitive construction processes, the effective control of such repetitive construction processes is a key factor in the success of the project. Unlike the existing scheduling methods for repetitive construction processes, a scheduling model that considers (i) the flexible job logic of the multiple work tasks that comprise a construction process and (ii) the productivity of the construction equipment and labor was developed in this paper. Various theories and algorithms such as the linking dummy, the linear scheduling method, and the production rate, were implemented in the development of the model. A scheduling model was then proposed based on such theories and algorithms and on a mathematical formula. The proposed model was verified by applying it to core wall construction, a key repetitive process in a high-rise building project. Verification showed that the developed model exhibited over 90% reliability. It is expected that the proposed model will allow effective scheduling for repetitive construction processes with flexible job logic.
