A process and an object oriented analysis to integrate design and construction

Abstract: This study is aimed at identifying design related problems encountered by contractors with the intention of minimising them. A full process analysis was carried out on the design function of concrete framed ofice buildings whereby site problems were traced back to the relevant design information. Design processes that significantly contribute to these problems were highlighted along with their data flows. An Object-Oriented Analysis method has then been applied to model the information in terms of the fundamental ideas that underlie object- oriented technology i.e. object types and classes, methods, requests, encapsulation and inheritance. Proceeding through the five major activities of Coad & Yourdon's OOA method, a complete OOA model has been developed with potential to improve the construction related problems.
