Construction 90/ development project for conceptual classification

Abstract:Construction/90 - development project for conceptual classification The aim of this development project is to continue the tradition of the national classification systems on the construction branch by introducing a new conceptual classification - Construction/90 which is an offspring of the previous classifications: Building-70 and Building-PO. The first phase of the development work was finished in May 1988. It creates the theoretical basis for the design of the detailed classification system which will be operative from 1990. The structure of the classification consists of three facets Any of the facets is to be able to cover all the costs involved independently, in order to make an economical control possible from different points of view. Thus every facet totally covers its own particular point of view: giving a complete list of the conceptual items Being a conceptual classification, the emphasis lies on the concepts, n7hich n pr3c1icd use are substituted by selected terms It may as such be called a nomenclature. too. For computer use, however. there will be an alphanumeric characteristic for every item as well Every facet has its principal use. The facets and their users are: Product facets: describes the product structure (elements of building) of the project. Principal user: the designer Resource facet: describes the resource structure (commodities, labour, subcontracts, site machinery) of the project. Principal user: contractor'spurchasing. Production facets describes the operations structure of the project. Principal user: the site management. The Construction/90 classification covers all construction work. i.e. architectural, civil engineering and mechanical works. It also covers all phases of construction from preliminary and technical design to contracting and maintenance It has been designed to meet the needs of the object oriented computer aided production.
