SYDOX/MATCOMP/XI: an information system adapted to the needs of construction actors
Abstract: This paper presents the SYDOX/MATCOMP/Xi French project, whose goal
is to provide the construction actors with an IT-based, on-line aid for
component specification and selection at different levels of the construction
life cycle. We will describe the main features of the information systems
(IS), then specific aspects addressed by the project. SYDOX is aimed at
defining and demonstrating a prototype to access information about
MATerials and COMPonents used in construction, implemented on a
WWW server and focused on a restricted sub-part of construction products.
We will present the work done: methodology for data structuring, structure
of the IS, database structuring, user interface, use of scenarios (enabling a
selection and an adaptation of the information retrieved, on the basis of a set
of criteria commonly used by professionals), hypertext links towards a
taxonomic structuring of the information, application to window and floor,
and some perspectives for the IS.
