Teaching

Construction operations, construction methods and occupational health and safety

Introduction to construction methods as well as machines and equipment for general earthwork, concrete construction, assembly construction and special construction tasks with presentation of the modes of operation as well as the calculation and costing approaches, as well as basics of construction site equipment.

Teaching of general basics for the preparation and design of construction processes: Special features of construction production; work preparation, quantity and cost calculation, effort and performance, presentation and control of processes; scheduling and scheduling control; the human being in the work process (ergonomic basics of construction operations), introduction to the basics of quality and ethics management.

Course-related evidence (as an exam admission requirement).

Integrated course (lectures + seminars).

Construction process control

Students will have a holistic view of construction processes based on the systems approach, as well as the theoretical foundations necessary for this; they will have knowledge of the modeling of construction and material flow processes and the use of simulation for their efficient design.

Starting from a holistic view (systems approach), fundamentals are taught to be able to design construction production processes efficiently. After an introduction, the fundamentals of modeling technological processes are laid and deepened using examples and modeling tools.

Contents of the module:

  • Fundamentals of Production, technology and technological processes
  • Knowledge and application of process modelling,
  • Perform BIM use cases
  • Fundamentals of simulation of construction processes,
  • Application of simulation and optimization in construction operations

Lean Construction

The course focusses on:

• Historical development of lean construction

• Lean principles

• Types of waste

• Methods of project and process analysis

• Order and cleanliness – 5S in construction

• Tact planning and Tact control

Projects and Theses

 

Interested students have the possibility to have a project or final thesis supervised by the Chair of Construction Engineering and Management in German or English, preferably on topics provided by the Chair. Final theses on own topics can also be supervised by the Chair. Students are always welcome to present project ideas.
