Effectively managing the construction network: the enabling role of IT

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to give new insights to researchers that are working on CIC. It stresses that if we only pursuit fill construction information integration and automation we will miss a great opportuniiry to radicalIy improve the construction process. The paper claims that the efective management of the interdependence of the construction process will require that construction companies reengineer their business processes and networks in -order to form IT- enabled networked firms and that pointing towards CIC we should consider three different levels: industry; inter-organistional; and within companies.
