These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • A MODEL UTILIZING THE ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORK IN COST ESTIMATION OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS IN JORDAN   Order a copy of this article
    by Dareen Al-Tawal, Ghaleb J. Sweis, Mazen Arafeh 
    Abstract: The efficacy and methodologies of artificial neural network (ANN) was performed on cost and design data of 104 building projects constructed over the past 5 years in Jordan to develop, train, and test a cost predictive ANN models. Fifty-three design parameters were utilized to develop the first ANN model at the detailed design stage, then a reduced factors of Forty-one design parameters were utilized to develop the second predictive model at the schematic design stage. Finally, Twenty-seven design parameters available at the concept design stage were utilized for the third ANN model. The models achieved an average cost estimation accuracies of 98%, 98%, and 97%, respectively, in the three stages.
