  • Abstract:
    Construction projects’ duration can be modelled using traditional and artificial intelligence methods. The first part of these two papers provides an insight into the principles of modelling project durations using neurofuzzy methods. This paper presents an understanding of how these methods operate and discusses the main issues concerning their use and application in construction management. An introduction to the problems of modelling and predicting construction projects’ duration is first presented. This is followed by explaining the neurofuzzy life cycle modelling process and discussing methods for modelling projects’ duration. A graphical presentation of the way in which neurofuzzy methods operate is also presented and discussed.
