heal.abstract The paper discusses the role of modelling and simulation techniques in large scale construction projects focusing on the opportunities and on the modelling challenges that are specific to this context of application. The paper argues that a methodology based on dynamic multi-process simulation models provides powerful decision support when assessing the performance implications of changes in the design and/or in the technology, as well as the impact of alternative courses of action during project execution. Dynamic multi-process simulation provides quantitative grounds for the understanding, analysis, and discussion among the project stakeholders, and creates the conditions for a concurrent engineering approach throughout the project.s lifecycle, starting from the early stages of conceptual design. A simulation-based study, based on actual data from a construction project, is presented in the paper to illustrate these benefits. © ECMS, 2006. en
