Conceptual models for planning of building and construction systems

Abstract: Presently, Conputer Integrated Construction (CIC) is recognized as a strategy as well as a concept. for associating existing resources, technologies, processes and organizations by information integration and automaton to optimize overall construction activities and functions. However although innovative computer and automation applications to the Architectwall Engineering/ Construction (NFYC) industry are introduced, no efficient approach to implement a full scale CIC has been established. Several attempts have taken place in different areas of the AWC industry depending on specific business characteristics, which also indicate potential applications of product modeling, process inodeling and information modeling to a practical approach to the Iota1 CIC. 'nie aim of this paper is to present results of current research and development issues on conceptual models which enable interactive planning between design and construction planning focusing on building systems and construction systems.Severa1 types of conceptual models are efficiently applied to explore distributed project planning and management in several planning stages. These models also incorporate conceptual product models represented as building system models, and conceptual process models represented as construction system planning models, construction activity planning models and construction facility planning models for CIC.
