Comprehensive Approach to Efficient Planning of Formwork Utilization on the Construction Site

Anna Krawczyńska-Piechna - Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Mechanics and Petrochemistry, Poland

The paper presents a consistent approach to concrete works planning, which begins with formwork selection and ends with project scheduling. To work out the problem of formwork selection, selected MCDA methods are recommended. In order to apply them, the decisive criteria were recognized with a structured survey sent to contractors. The efficiency of formwork utilization is measured with a virtual cost of formwork under utilization, so when the formwork is available on the construction site but remains unused or when it should be struck but remains unremoved from the construction. Such measure was determined, after having analysed various criteria of schedule quality and optimality assessment.
