Integration of construction management functions

Abstract: To date, the development of construction management software has focussed primarily on the generation of a project plan and schedule, its monitoring, updating and revision, i.e., it has adopted a process-centric approach. However, there is a growing awareness of the need to support other functions such as productivity analysis, change management and quality management, to name a few. The development of computer-based systems that support a broad spectrum of interdependent functions (interdependent in terms of data and information requirements) leads to the topic of integration and how best to achieve it. Described in this paper is a multiple-view representation of projects that facilitates the integration of and computer assistance for a diverse range of functions. Productivity analysis is used as a context to present the opportunities such a representation offers for integration and an enriched and expanded function set.
