Accurate information of locations from visual aspect is vital for efficient resource planning and managing the workspace conflict in earthworks, which are missing in the existing schedules. Hence, the construction managers have to depend on the subjective decisions and intangible imagining for resources allocation, workspace and progress monitoring in earthworks. This has caused uncertainties in planning and scheduling, and consequently delays and cost overruns of projects. To overcome these issues, a framework of prototype model was developed using the theory of location-based planning. This paper focuses on case study experiments to demonstrate the functions of the model, which includes automatic generation of location-based earthwork schedules and visualisation of cut-fill locations on a weekly basis. The experiment results confirmed the model’s capability in identifying precise weekly locations and visualising the time-space conflict at the earthwork operations. Hence, the paper concludes that the model is useful to improve site productivity and reduce production cost of earthworks in the projects like roads and railways.
