Abstract: The aim of this paper is to propose the use of simulation to improve design quality and to introduce new opportunities to use quality management throughout the various development stages of construction projects. The paper will attempt to identify the opportunities and implications of quality management with specific emphasis on construction project management during the feasibility study, design, construction planning and construction building life cycle phases. Simulation validates and tests various design assumptions long before construction begins. Better evaluation of design alternatives by means of simulation will contribute positively to construction project design, quality and management. Many lesser known manufacturing techniques can contribute significantly to the improvement of the life cycle phases of a building
