Utilization of Artificial Neural Network
Keywords:Artificial neural networks, Construction, Management, Urban projects
AbstractArtificial neural networks (NN), have been applied to many construction management problems in urban projects. NN have showed some degree of success so the objective of this paper is to highlight some applications of this tool in the construction management field to help specialists find optimum solutions. A brief description of the input and output variables for each mentioned problem was illustrated in addition to the number and type of data set collected to train and test the neural network performance then the percentage error for each developed model was pointed out to demonstrate its accuracy.
