A Case Study of a National Building Industry Strategy for Computer Integrated Construction

Abstract: Computer integrated construction (CIC) is a future state of the use of IT in construction characterised by the extensive use of computers for all kinds of application as well as by the transfer of information between such applications in digital form. CIC necessitates an infrastructure of data structuring and transfer standards, computer networks, digital information services for construction, etc. This paper presents the efforts made during the last ten years by the Finnish construction industry to develop strategic parts of such an infrastructure, the RATAS project. In addition to a survey of a number of technical projects, the paper also presents the organisational aspects of the project and attempts to evaluate the results that have been achieved so far.
