IntroductionBrief outline of the entire study undertakingThe requirement of the automation based robotic technology innovation in the businessapplication can be acknowledged through the realization of optimization prospects ofconstruction industry itself. The advent of the computer also heralded in the process of utilizationof software-based computer applications for mechanization and utilization of automation tocontrol machines through computerized systems with the progressively lesser requirement forhuman intervention. In spite of the fact that robotic and automation technology could providenew horizons to the process of better control and execution of the industrial construction tasks,innovation-based computerized machines have not been introduced with the pace and swiftnesswhich could be expected of such precision-based technology in terms of application in theconstruction projects throughout the world. Robotics and automation are responsible forperforming all of the complex sequences of construction operations as well as providing newdimensions of precision and control to the overall responsibility profile of supervision regardingthe construction projects. Construction automation could not only involve an entire range ofequipment such as from basic devices to completely mechanized gadgets but also involves thegathering of necessary information and graphically showing the outcomes of each operationcontinuously.Introduction of the measures of the topic under considerationThus, the topic selected regarding such considerations of enhancing construction managementcapability through robotically operated automation systems in construction and engineeringrelated projects, as per the research ofVähäet al(2013), it could be highlighted that undertakingof research and evaluation in this direction is a well-established objective bordering on the3
necessity to determine the extent to which automation and utilization of robots have transformedthe construction sector in the present era. The construction projects of the concurrent time span avast spectrum involving strictly architectural projects such as skyscraper constructions toextensive public utility services such as subterranean sewage passages as well as undergroundrailway and highway construction, to even complicated megaproject based undertakings such ashydroelectric dams, airports, bridges and tunnel construction initiatives. Application of multipledevices and machinery which could be synchronized as well as controlled through the utilizationof computer-aided control and supervision mechanisms has thus become essential on the basis ofcost management and risk reduction potential realization for the construction managementagencies which could be undertaking such responsibilities of engineering such objects. To thiseffect, as per the research ofFenget al(2015), it could be ascertained that the measures anddimensions of the research topic under consideration are relative to the hyper-competitive marketscenario oriented and production optimization directive guided process rationalization regardingthe construction projects and related operations which could be underway throughout the globalconstruction industry. Thus, the necessity of robotisation, as well as automated constructionsystem utilization, could be determined to be paramount from a managerial and administrativeperspective regarding culmination of the construction projects of various nature and extent. Thecorresponding study is particularly reflective of the attempt to put such criteria in perspectivethrough an in-depth and analytical approach to this topic.Technological advancement selected and how it worksTechnological advancements regarding automation and application of robots for the purpose ofthe improvement and optimization of the construction sector based projects could be outlinedthrough the evaluative review of available information concerning the involvement of robotic4
