It's a silent, but firm process of transforming companies to a digitalcontext. This is part of I-CONSneT investigation project that will present a competitive scenariodescription for construction companies in the new economy.This paper reviews, based on I-CONSneT, the new competitive context and formulates an integralInternet strategy to help managers clarify and negotiate this new business scenario, entering on the'Internetisation' era.

Digital Tools for the Construction Site. A Case Study: ACCEPT Project
Abstract: Construction projects often encounter problems related to scheduling reliability and to a mismatch between the expected and actual building performance. In order to reduce these problems, the ACCEPT project is developing an ICT system to manage construction works more efficiently by applying Lean Construction principles, to increase the quality of executed works by implementing interactive checklists and sensors, and to share information in real-time among different stakeholders. In the ACCEPT system, existing technologies such as Augmented Reality, BIM, mobile/wearable devices and sensors have been combined together to create an innovative ICT solution for construction management. The ACCEPT system consists of three interconnected applications: SiMaApp for mobile devices CoOpApp for smart glasses and Dashboard for PC. The main goal of this research paper is to describe the framework of the ACCEPT system and its applications.
Keywords: Digital Tools, Augmented Reality, BIM, Lean Construction, Quality Control
