The use of internet technologies in delivering architectural CPD
Abstract: "This paper is based on a Royal Institute of British Architects funded project carried out with the co-operation of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland. It was recognised that the architectural profession in Scotland, outside of the Glasgow – Edinburgh central belt, consisted predominantly of small (less than six people) offices. Many of these were single practitioner practices operating in geographically remote locations; attendance at organised CPD meetings may well entail a days travel to reach the meeting, meaning that the practice is left unattended for up to three days.
The study reports on:
·detailed surveys of the IT equipment and skill levels in these small practices
·the possible uses of simple Internet technologies to provide back-up to these small practices
·modes of delivery for various levels of CPD
·the use of “Web diaries” for logging learning objectives and achievements
Detailed proposals are made regarding the strategies to be adopted by the professional institutes with regard to both new technologies and supporting a widely dispersed membership."

A Framework for CPD and 5D BIM process REUSE
Abstract: This paper tries to establish a framework for process reuse in ‘collaborative product development’ (CPD) with 5D BIM. 5D integrates 3D models with non-geometrical metadata, costs, and schedules that can be developed in three main ways (part-recipe, task-part or embedded link). For continuous process improvement (CPI), we identified barriers and enablers and proposed explicit and implicit process reuse support options via workflow systems, process repositories with new process querying.
Keywords: process reuse, 5D BIM, collaborative product development, workflows, BPM, CPI
