Abstract [en]

This master thesis is a study of the location-based management systems (LBMS) in construction projects. First, a review of the history of both the traditional (CPM, PERT) and the new methods (LBMS) set the basis of understanding for the need of changing the approach in planning. This change claims for an evolution from the activity-based planning to the location-based as a response to the change this production type has suffered, especially with the introduction of new philosophies as lean construction. As the scope of the thesis is limited, the focus will be mainly in the consequences towards task continuity and resource balance. With the development of LBMS have appeared also technical tools to support its implementation. Among these tools is VICO Office, a software developed to implement this new planning perspective. A case study is used in this thesis to exemplify the use of VICO Office and to see how the transition and optimization of a traditionally planned construction project can be undertaken. The case study is part of Skanska Norge AS portfolio in Oslo (Schweigårdsgate 21-23).
