Failure Propagation within Construction Projects

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Posterpeer-review


Construction Projects can be viewed as complex networks by abstracting their composing activities as nodes, and linking them via their temporal dependencies. By doing so, a number of methodologies found within the complexity science paradigm—specifically, complex networks - can be applied in order to produce new insights. This poster will present a brief background on the overall theme of the research. A simple failure propagation model under a worst case scenario (i.e. no threshold) will first be presented, in order to account for a context-dependent element of this system. We will further introduce empirical evidence on a number of varying aspects that define such systems and will inform future work.
