Abstract

Rework that is often experienced in construction projects is primarily caused by error made during the design process. Factors that contribute to design errors are identifies and used to design and develop a systems dynamics model, which is used to simulate a number of practical scenarios that can be used to reduce design errors and rework. The DEsign and COnstuction REwork Minimisation (DECOREM) management model presented in this paper can enable design and project managers to better understand the process of design documentation and how design errors occur in construction projects.
