Conceptual models for communicating knowledge in the building industry - implementation of the cube system

Abstract: This paper presents the conceptual models that emerged during the development of the Cube demonstrator in the Cube project at Lund University in Sweden. The Cube project was led by the Department of Construction Management with the systems development being done by the authors, at the KBS-Media Lab of the Department of Structural Engineering. The paper presents the underlying conceptual models for knowledge transfer used in the Cube system. In the Cube system the formalized rules do not apply to the knowledge itself but rather to the way it is conveyed. The goal for these models is to assist a growth of building knowledge that is driven from the building site and the daily situations there. It is showed how knowledge chunks are labeled and stored in answer boxes specific for each project or building site. Existing classification systems, BSAB, are implemented together with a dynamic limited vocabulary and task-oriented headings to form an efficient knowledge communication and retrieval system.
