Abstract: The construction industry is one of the most important employment sectors in Canada. However, its inertia rivals its size, and this observation is visible in the productivity gap that widens each year compared to other sectors. Among the many recommendations around the world and over the years, an increase in the use of technologies is a recurring theme, particularly through the adoption of more advanced computer assisted design, planning and project management methods than the Gantt chart on paper. This Masters’ thesis is intended to be both an introduction for construction stakeholders and a basis on which to establish the next academic advances in the field of construction site scheduling. To achieve this, four steps were carried out: a systematic literature review from 2008 to 2018, followed by a three-figure classification of the 28 tools found, and semi-structured interviews on the work done up to date and its follow-up. Finally, a decision support system was set up in Excel to support industry players with research results. The contributions of this thesis are: 1) A systematic literature review from 2008 to 2018 on computer-assisted scheduling tools; 2) A directory of ideas and tools for computer-assisted scheduling in the construction industry; 3) A user-friendly and portable solution to browse the results of this research.
