Technical specifications in the information management
Abstract: The result of the study is a software programme to develop and manage the
technical specifications and to plan the quality control in the construction.
The software programme can be described as a Project Data Management
Environment (PDME). The PDME is built with different information level, to collect
and standardise diversified information, coming from different bodies. Great
importance has the interface, which should be simple, human like and easy to use
from the sector operators.
The study defines the structure and elements of the PDME, would promote the
spreading out of information on technical specifications and quality control in the

VISI: a methodology to standardise communications in civil engineering
Abstract: Parties collaborating on infrastructure projects in the civil engineering industry have expressed theirneed to use common starting points for information transfer and communication. The VISI projectexamined what type of starting points are required for the design and construction of infrastructure,proposing a framework of agreements that is based on the DEMO organisational theory. Theframework describes the process on the dividing lines of identified roles. The responsibilities ofeach role are determined, including the required communication. The framework was elaborated forthe following fields of application: design, contracting, and testing/acceptance. The result iscurrently being tested in the sector, and the first results of the trial demonstrate that the frameworkoffers effective support for organising the collaboration and specifying the communication structure.
