Isomorphism, Buildability, Standard, Resources, Efficiency


In spite of the importance of the concept of design buildability, it has found little application in construction management because the concept is yet to be validly measured. It is for this purpose that this study aims at developing an evaluation technique that is mathematically valid, to generate a metric for measuring buildability which does not only preserve transitive order but that also measures distance. Buildability was modeled into the Resources Utilization Efficiency (RUE) equation as a disturbance (
