Table 1: Review of existing strategic business planning tools.

Tool typeObjectiveLimitation

Multidimensional site management model [49]Integrating 4D technology to solve problems of construction resource planningIt only addresses resource management and site space utilization

Virtual design for preconstruction planning [50]Utilizing virtual reality modeling techniques to create the virtual planning tool for construction applicationsTool is a prototype and has not been tested for actual construction situations

Simulation modeling and geographic information system [51]Creation of spatial support system design tool to evaluate contingency planning for emergency evacuationIt fails to address the financial side of construction project planning

Computer-aided planning support systems for construction [5]Implementing computer-based geoinformation instruments as a subset of established planning support systemsIt lacks specific criteria to decide between renovation construction projects and new buildings
