WEB-Services as a Technology to Support Construction Processes
Abstract: Construction projects are characterised by specific peculiarities so that the processes for the execution of construction projects need to be prepared and setup individually for each project. However, a lot of tasks are executed in similar ways in different projects. The knowledge of executing these tasks can be transferred from project to project whereas the context and the interaction between tasks may differ. The approach presented in this paper reflects the situation in dealing with construction processes and discusses WEB-services as a suitable technology to support the processes. The idea is to support specific tasks by WEB-services. These services are implemented once. The tasks that are supported by these WEB-services may occur in different projects. This is expressed in an individual process model for each project. Based on the relationships between tasks and WEB-services, an individual information system for each project can be customised on the basis of the process model.
