Construction project including group of interrelated work activities constrained that by 13 knowledge areas. It is made up to achieve specific objectives. During management processes objective functions and constraints have to be optimized. This paper discusses the difficulties appear during making decisions in construction management. Then it addresses how optimization techniques can provide tools for making optimal or best decisions with respect to construction project management. It reviews s some literature concerned with using artificial intelligence algorithms in optimization models applied to make decisions required for managing construction project. This paper aims at presenting the general steps required in this area of research and shows that there are still many research gaps in making decision in construction projects and a lot of opportunities for future studies.
