Abstract

The amount and market size of apartment complex exterior wall painting work continues to increase each year in South Korea. Nevertheless, there are difficulties with the supply and demand of human resources due to the high risks associated with conventional painting work. To resolve these issues, research and development has recently been conducted on a Gondola-type Exterior Wall Painting robot (GEWPro). The aims of this study were to develop a performance evaluation and life cycle cost (LCC) analysis model for a GEWPro and deduce its performance and economic efficiency through a case study. According to the results, the performance of the automated method was 16.8% higher than that of the conventional method, and the economic efficiency was also superior (benefit/cost ratio 6.39). These results show that the proposed performance evaluation and LCC analysis model can predict the productivity and economic efficiency of automated methods.
