Process modelling of E-procurement in the Singapore construction industry

Abstract: The E-commerce, as a new trading and business mode through the Internet, has started to penetrate all industry sectors aggressively in Singapore. As value of construction procurement usually accounts for about 70%-80% of the contract value, more and more portals are being set up by local and overseas companies to target the market, especially in building resources procurement, real estate marketing, etc. This research will focus on the process modelling of the E-procurement in construction, i.e. the reengineering of the E-procurement process in construction, based on the current traditional procurement practice, the survey in local construction industry, and the survey in local construction portal providers. The objectives of the research are to promote IT in Singapore and to reduce the duplication of work in current construction procurement. The ideal model will be proposed after the analysis of the above surveys and the final Eprocurement process modelling will be in a format of IDEF0, which is a typical diagramming method for process modelling.
