Improving the brief through information and process modelling

Abstract: Due to the vast amount of information and knowledge involved in construction projects, clients often have difficulties in identifying and communicating their actual requirements. In order to address this information effectively during the briefing process, such information is modelled into structured data models using EXPRESS-G technique. The processes involved during the development of the brief, however, are modelled using IDEF0 technique.The developed models establish the foundation for the development of a computerised system, which utilise an object oriented environment. The implemented object oriented data models then form the framework for the presentation of the client's brief. These models, when implemented into the computerised environment, will significantly enhance the communication channel between the various parties involved from a very early stage of a construction project. The outcome is an improved brief, which fulfils the client's budgetary constraints.
