Advances in technology and modern systems have enabled a major shift in the presentation of reality in a virtual way. The representation of a real system using a model enables various experiments, analyzes and studies. In this paper, a general overview of modelling and simulation is given. Through a brief description of methods and techniques, a special review of the simulation in construction management is given. Processes and phenomena in construction are mostly of stochastic character, so it is very convenient to apply simulation for their computer representation. Also, the cyclicity of most processes in construction, as well as their dynamics provides a suitable basis for the application of simulation. Simulation is often used to solve various problems in construction management, as: optimization, predicting, allocation of resources, solving transportation problems, supply chains, selection of machinery, etc. Simulation methods are described and an overview of the software most commonly used in construction management is given.
