Construction projects are initiated in complex and dynamic environments resulting in circumstances of high uncertainty and risk, which are compounded by demanding time constraints. This paper describes an application of Monte Carlo simulation method to consider and quantify uncertainty in construction scheduling. This paper points out the importance of the construction project scheduling risk analysis and assessment from the perspective of contractor and points out the limitations of project management network techniques (CPM/PERT). Based on analyzing the principle of construction project scheduling risk analysis and assessment using Mote Carlo simulation method, the evaluating steps of Mote Carlo simulation method are given. Ultimately, the outcomes of the paper are illustrated by an instance.
