Construction information access throuth a "malleable frame"

Abstract: Information management is critical to the success of a construction project. Because of the fragmentation of construction information and the volatility of construction projects, information sharing and collaboration are important measures to achieve successful project information management. However, many current research projects focus only on shared project information. A gap between the shared project information and the nonshared project information still exists. This paper shows models and methodology to bridge the gap and make a document "malleable" according to user's needs by using contemporary computer technologies such as XML (eXtended Markup Language) and WDDX (Web Distributed Data eXchange). Some details about specifications for implementation are also presented.
