A Playbook for Planning

ALICE Recipes contain the construction tasks that guide your project plan. Use them to digitize your company's unique methods and scope and transfer key learnings from project to project so you never have to start planning from scratch.
  • Capture the set of constraints that govern your project
  • Document your firm's construction costs and production rates
  • Digitize your firm's building methods and share best practices across projects
  • Eliminates the need for creating manual schedules

ALICE Duration Savings

Objective:

Use ALICE to identify and validate duration savings against P6 baseline schedule
  • Project: 20km highway including overpasses
  • Two teams worked separately, one working with P6 and one working with ALICE, with results compared at the end
  • After 6 months of meticulous analysis – the ALICE team came out as the clear winner with a more optimized and significantly faster schedule.

ALICE Duration Savings

Objective:

Use ALICE to explore crane placement and task sequencing scenarios on complex roof structure
  • ALICE was used to explore optimal sequencing to the complex roof structure of a multi-billion dollar airport in Asia.
  • Construction team used ALICE to explore various crane placements and directions – an analysis that was not possible to do with traditional planning methods.
  • The ALICE sequence optimized crane time and usage, further reducing time and cost of equipment onsite.
