Simulation has been academic tool since 1960. The use of simulation in construction programs was only in graduate and undergraduate studies. Simulation was seldom used in practice, especially in construction sector. The construction industry has been reluctant to consider this tool as a definitive aid for resource optimisation and productivity improvement. Simulation needs exploration with further research and application tha\ are specific to the problems of the construction industry. This study mdde a successful attempt by using Simulation in Construction.
