Computer aided quality management of building projects

Abstract:Building projects are unique business events and need a sophisticated quality management to be technically and economically efficient. Experiences have shown that early recognition of bad quality and errors substantially lowers the costs of error elimination. Costs of mistake made in the phase of conception are multiplied when transposed to subsequent phases. The aim of this research was to build an integrated computer aided quality management of building projects. Making use of expert experience, we are building an information system which will supervise the fulfillment of the required conditions for undisturbed and quality project continuation. The quality control system will be supported by a computer program which is based on the conventional expert system. In the first version of the system the user will be guided through the control sheets so that the required control data will be collected. In the case of unfulfillment of quality conditions, the system will suggest possible solutions based on experiences. The program will compare present project to past ones and determine weak points of the project to assure total quality. In the next version of development the program will be supported by a product model of the building with aim to reach integrated quality management of building projects. In the contribution the concept of the relevant paper is presented. As results the overview through present situation in quality management of building projects (1) and the concept of the planned information system are shown (2).
