Transforming Urban Living in Bangkok: The Role of Infrastructure Asset Management in Creating a Smart City
The rapid urbanization and population growth in cities worldwide have presented numerous challenges, and Bangkok is no exception. In response to these challenges, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has embarked on a transformative journey to establish a smart and sustainable metropolis. A crucial component of this transformation is Infrastructure Asset Management (IAM), which harnesses technology to enhance the efficiency, resilience, and quality of urban infrastructure. Two key areas of focus in this endeavor are Pavement Analysis for Maintenance and Lighting Control Systems. By integrating advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), survey technology, artificial intelligence, and data analytics, the BMA effectively monitors, maintains, and optimizes the city’s infrastructure assets.
The application of Pavement Analysis for Maintenance ensures that Bangkok’s roads and sidewalks are in optimal condition. By utilizing survey technology, and data analytics, the BMA can proactively identify areas requiring maintenance, minimizing disruptions and enhancing overall transportation efficiency. This approach results in cost savings and improved safety for residents and commuters.
The implementation of a sophisticated Lighting Control System is another significant aspect of Bangkok’s smart city transformation. Through IAM, the BMA leverages advanced technologies to monitor and control street lighting. This enables efficient energy management, reduced light pollution, and enhanced safety in public spaces. By leveraging data analytics, the BMA can identify patterns and optimize lighting schedules, creating a more sustainable and citizen-centric urban environment.
While Bangkok has made substantial progress in its smart city journey, several challenges remain. These include concerns related to privacy and security, the need for infrastructure upgrades, and ensuring equitable access to technology for all citizens. To address these challenges, Bangkok should continue to foster collaboration between the public and private sectors, invest in research and development, and place a strong emphasis on citizen engagement and inclusivity.

Engineering Brain: Metaverse for the future engineering
Engineering Brain is a sophisticated system that uses AI algorithms to analyse data and provide valuable insights to engineers. It allows engineers to simulate various construction scenarios and predict their outcomes, enabling them to make informed decisions in real-time. By integrating BIM, engineers can create a digital twin of the project that captures every detail of the physical structure, from the design to the construction phase. This technology enhances collaboration between all parties involved, including architects, engineers, contractors, and owners. This keynote presentation will provide attendees with an in-depth understanding of the engineering brain concept and its application in construction and civil engineering. The presentation will begin by introducing the basic principles of the engineering brain and its components. Then, the presentation will delve into the benefits of using the engineering brain in construction and civil engineering, including improved accuracy, efficiency, and sustainability. The keynote presentation will also discuss various case studies and real-world examples of successful engineering brain implementations. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges faced during implementation and the solutions that were employed to overcome them. Finally, the keynote presentation will conclude with a discussion of the future of the engineering brain in construction and civil engineering.

Decision Support Systems for Civil Engineering Construction
Decision support systems have been developed and applied at all levels of civil engineering construction. This presentation will concentrate on two such applications. At the strategic level we will examine how competitive bidding models can help a contractor select the optimum price for a lump-sum construction contract. We will also examine the importance of cost uncertainty and the contractor’s risk aversion on the optimum bid price. These are two factors that have traditionally been ignored even though they have a significant impact on how much the contractor should bid. At the operational level we will describe the discrete event simulation systems that have been developed at the University of Michigan, such as UM-CYCLONE, COOPS, STROBOSCOPE, and EZSTROBE, for modeling construction processes under uncertainty. The most modern of these, STROBOSCOPE and EZSTROBE, are used throughout the world for research, teaching, and practice, and are available from www.stroboscope.org. Applications of these systems to be presented include general earthmoving, dam construction, tunneling, and the scheduling of projects with repeating activities under uncertainty.
