Construction and management

Construction and management simulation (CMS) is a type of simulation game in which players build, expand or manage fictional communities or projects with limited resources. Strategy video games sometimes incorporate CMS aspects into their game economy, as players must manage resources while expanding their project.

Construction and management simulation are a subgenre of simulation video games. Read the full article at the Wikipedia.
