Integrated CAD - The Problems and the Possibilities

Abstract: This paper summarises the objectives of CIB W78 and of the Colloquium on integrated computer aided design. It defines the types of integrated which are needed - of hardware and software systems, and of the stages in the design and construction of buildings. It discusses what has been achieved and where the problems lie, how development of standards and the exchange of experience can help. Examples of how CAD is being used in different countries are covered by subsequent papers and visits, and, by the end of the Colloquium, it is hoped to establish how CIB can help overcome some of the problems.
