Building construction primary task models

Abstract: This paper provides a foundation for developing an integrated conceptual data model for managing information during the life cycle of a building. The Soft System Methodology (SSM) was used to develop Issue Based (IB) and Building Construction Primary Task (BCPT) models. The IB model was found to be an effective system for presenting a conceptual organization and the interrelationships among the different subsystems of the organization. The BCPT model provides a practical framework for building construction process analysis. It defines the minimum and necessary tasks required to support the subsystems of the IB model. These two models have formed a foundation for development of a conceptual data model for information integration utilizing the IDEF1x technique.
