SYDOX/MATCOMP/XI: an information system adapted to the needs of construction actors

Abstract: This paper presents the SYDOX/MATCOMP/Xi French project, whose goal is to provide the construction actors with an IT-based, on-line aid for component specification and selection at different levels of the construction life cycle. We will describe the main features of the information systems (IS), then specific aspects addressed by the project. SYDOX is aimed at defining and demonstrating a prototype to access information about MATerials and COMPonents used in construction, implemented on a WWW server and focused on a restricted sub-part of construction products. We will present the work done: methodology for data structuring, structure of the IS, database structuring, user interface, use of scenarios (enabling a selection and an adaptation of the information retrieved, on the basis of a set of criteria commonly used by professionals), hypertext links towards a taxonomic structuring of the information, application to window and floor, and some perspectives for the IS.
