CCE 6370 - Sensing and Modeling for Construction Management

Developments of sensing and modeling technology provide construction project managers tools for achieving real-time construction site monitoring and integrated cost-schedule information management. The purpose of this course is to provide students with a comprehensive overview about the technical capabilities of various sensing (e.g., RFID, video cameras, laser scanners) and modeling technologies (3D modeling, CAD, Building Information Modeling, Geographic Information Systems), and experience how these technologies can help construction project managers to achieve efficient and effective construction project planning, job site monitoring, and integrated cost-time-safety-quality management. Students will learn various data processing and visualization methods for analyzing the data collected by various sensors, and have hands-on experiences of using BIM, GIS and 3D reverse engineering software systems (Autodesk Revit, Google Sketchup, ESRI ArcGIS, Google Earth, InnoveMetric Polyworks, etc.).
