Information structure for integration of facility projects at operational airports
Abstract: Airport Organizations are faced with the increasingly complex task of
integrating facility development projects with operational airport systems.
Computer network systems present promising opportunities for meeting this
challenge. The goal of improving the integration of airport systems is
similar to the goal of computer-integrated construction in the Architectural,
Engineering, Construction and Facilities Management (AEC/FM) industry.
In the AEC/FM industry, researchers are applying object-oriented, graphical
models as a basis for data exchange. In this research, an information
structure for the relationship of facility projects with airport management
and operations is formulated using graphical modeling. The purpose of this
model is for application as an airport facilities and construction
management, information reference and retrieval tool. A prototype
implementation based on this work is located on the Internet at:
