Abstract: The application of an object-oriented (OO) approach including the OO modeling concept and the OO programming mechanisms to develop an activity object-oriented (AOO) simulation strategy for modeling construction operations is introduced. After discussing simulation strategies generally used for construction simulation and analyzing the problems related to the simulation strategies, the AOO simulation strategy that guides modeling or controls simulation experiments for construction simulation is introduced. The AOO simulation strategy considers activities to be objects and is able to overcome some pitfalls that result from other general simulation strategies. In addition, the AOO graphical modeling interface associated with the AOO simulation strategy is described. Finally, comparisons of the graphical model or the simulation results of the AOO simulation system with other simulation tools are illustrated.
