A collaborative environment for building construction project toward computerization of total information

Abstract:This study aims at developing a collaborative environment for construction projects in order to computerize the project management of building construction. As a first simplification, the project management team is assumed to consist of the following staffs, manager, planning staff, technical staff, production staff, quality staff, material staff and financial staff, each representing a function for the project. It is proposed in this study that, a collaborative environment is provided and that each staff works on the environment to fulfill his own work, to share the project information with other staffs according to predefined rules for information access, and to coordinate with them. Domain models have been established, and a prototypical collaborative environment, which is used to manage the total project information in the proposed pattern and works on a client/server database management system on Local Area Network (LAN), has been developed.
