A fuzzy model and algorithm to handle subjectivity in life cycle costing based decision-making.
(Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2000)
A life cycle costing (LCC) algorithm that can effectively deal with judgmental assessments of input parameters is proposed. This algorithm is based on the fuzzy set theory and interval mathematics. The development of the ...
Handling uncertain information in whole-life costing: a comparative study
(Palgrave MacMillan Ltd., 2002-07)
A number of recently developed algorithms to handle uncertain information in whole life costing (WLC) are explained and validated in the context of two example applications. In the first example application, the proposed ...
An innovative integrated approach to whole life costing.
(Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2002)
A number of recently developed algorithms are combined to build an innovative integrated whole life costing approach. The integration process is based on the simple idea of breaking the decision-making process into a ...
Effective feedback of whole-life data to the design process.
(Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2003)
Key activities of the implementation of whole-life costing (WLC) as a management tool during the occupancy stage are outlined. Then, the logic of a novel whole-life management approach is designed around two recently ...
Whole life costing in construction: a state of the art review.
This report is a state of the art review of whole life costing in the construction industry. It is the first of a series reporting on-going research undertaken within the research project ‘Developing An Integrated Database ...
