Overruns to planned schedules are common in civil construction projects worldwide. Yet, the construction industry fails to recognize the criticality of the problem, and while models have been developed, their lack of adequate sophistication fails to alleviate the problem. Additionally, there is resistance from construction professionals to use such models due to the lack of software integration models and modular functionality. This paper presents a performance‐based duration estimation model integrated with an automation system model, MITOS – multi‐phase integrated automation system, that was designed primarily for design/build firms. An experience‐based computational model is used for the estimation of the duration of construction projects and the performance results are discussed.
