Fast Track Projects


an increasing necessity with tight client and industry schedules

concurrent engineering - successive activities are overlapped/compressed to reduce project duration limited to design activities

Our paper aims to present a similar process for scheduling construction phases of a current project by implementing a dependency structure matrix (DSM)
Importance of Information Flow and Dependencies
fast-track method requires overlap between pairs of activities

amount, timing and nature of information flow determines degree of overlap process starts by identifying activities that can be overlapped - then qualifying and quantifying this dependency Khoueiry Y, Srour I, Yassine A, (2013)

Overview of DSM Technique


Dependency Structure Matrix (DSM)

representation tool that lists activities, corresponding information exchange & their dependency/weight patterns

Application of DSM in the Design Phase of a Construction Project


initially intended for manufacturing

Decision makers schedule works to streamline the activities based on an optimal flow of information, consequently, reducing time

implementing fast-tracking approach in construction using a matrix framework - specifically the DSM technique remarkably reduce project duration and costs YET mainly apply to design phases of construction projects fall short of treating actual construction phases

Planing the Steps


Concrete Works Schedule: A-Foundations: Concrete Works in foundation should start on 10 July 2012 and finished on the first of January 2013 in the whole surface of this MEGA project.

Planing the Steps


Concrete Works Schedule: Concrete Works in second and first basement are divided into five zones A , B , C , D and E

Planing the Steps


Concrete Works Schedule: B-Basement 2: For Zone A , B and E concrete works will start on five January 2013 to be finished in ten February as for zone C and D to be finished in thirty February.

Planing the Steps


Concrete Works Schedule: C-Basement 1: On 11 of February man power should start working on pouring slab, columns, and walls concrete for zone A , B and E to be finished in the first of march. Because concrete works in zone C and D are more sophisticated and include difficult details (example Water tank), they will not be able to finish all these works before 15 April 2013.

ZONE C & D

ZONE A and B

Planing the Steps


Finishing work schedule : A-Basement 2&1 As Concrete works , Finishing works are also divided into these five zones. After finishing all concrete works in Basement 1&2 , starting block and plaster work is necessary so around 10 May finishing work should be started to be finished in the two basement around end of June 2013.

BLOCK WORK

ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Concrete works: The concrete works of zone A , B and E were done. As for zone C and D concrete works in basement 2 were done , in basement 1 both zone D and zone C are done except for the Water Tank . Also Block and Plaster work are 95% done in these five zones that represent 60% of the MEA training center project.

ZONE A and B

ZONE C , D & E

RECOMENDATION
Concrete works: The concrete works of zone A , B and E where done before its planned completion dates. Due to that , they could start finishing works earlier than the planned dates. On the other hand the concrete works related to the water tank were delayed due to the complexity of its execution(especially its design due to the presence of a big dom above).
