An organization based information architecture to support upper level construction organization decisions

Abstract:This paper presents an Organization Based Information Architecture (OBIA). This architecture has been developed to support the upper level decision ding processes of construction organizations. The information in the OBIA is separated into five main categories: Organization, commitment, process, environment, and facility. These categories were identified through expert interviews and case study evaluation. The main categories of inform provide an information structure which supports strategic level decisions within a construction organization such as project risk assessment, selection of future projects and strategic planning functions. These decisions require information which is not well defined by project specific information structures developed in previous research efforts.
